Wicksteed Park has announced that it will be holding a recruitment drive to offer 130 flexible jobs from Easter, rising to 200 during the peak season. The family-friendly park is seeking those with bags of enthusiasm and a passion for customer service.
This year, the Kettering based amusement park will be switching-up its recruitment process to make sure the best candidates for the job are employed. Rather than recruiting for specific roles, the team will be interviewing for skill-set and personability first, then assigning candidates to the most suited role in the park.
Information gathering sessions will be held at Wicksteed Park’s iconic pavillion in the coming weeks, but the park is urging potential candidates to apply and register their interest online first. Applications must be submitted by Friday 8th March, with interviews taking place from Saturday 9th March.
The park prides itself on offering equal opportunities to all, including those who are looking for more flexible working hours. Rachel James, Head of Marketing at Wicksteed Park commented: “We truly believe that it’s the people that make our park and the experience memorable for our guests. We are looking for bright, charismatic team members to bring our historic park to life during peak times, and we think our new way of recruiting will really help us to achieve this.
“We also want to emphasise the fact that we can accommodate for flexible job roles. If you’re a new mum who prefers to work reduced hours, or a student that wants to fit in a job around your studies, Wicksteed Park may have just the role for you. With a number of different roles and requirements throughout the season, there really is something for every situation.”
Opportunities are available in all areas of the park, including in the park’s cafes, restaurants, gift shops and kitchen. The team is also recruiting for the ride team, grounds team, activities instructors and cleaning assistants.
Those who are interested in being a member of the Wicksteed Park team should visit www.wicksteedpark.org/careers to register their interest.
Training for successful candidates will begin from Saturday 23rd March onwards.
