Right now, we’re looking for Actors to play Christmas Elves!
About the role
As a Christmas Elf you will be based in a stand-alone event space near our attractions for guests to enjoy safe, festive fun with their nearest and DEERest in the enchanted grotto. This will involve being in character as an Elf, assisting with various activities and supporting Father Christmas.
This is a guest facing role, to support and engage with guests that are visiting our event during this magical time. You will be required to be in character as an Elf for each shift during the event, so you must be confident in characterisation and performance. Strong guest interaction skills are also a must! Keeping the Christmas magic alive you will support the operational teams with COVID safety measures and be on hand to check tickets and help guests wherever needed.
We require Elves to be available when the contract starts from 24th November to 24th December. Based upon 15 hours a week, working 2 - 3 days out of 7 and due to the 7-day nature of the business this will include weekends and bank holidays as and when required.
As a magical Elf you are responsible for welcoming families to Santa’s Grotto and creating a memorable experience, therefore a considerable amount of interaction and improvisation is required throughout.
You'll have a love of everything Christmas, a huge sense of fun, and the confidence to organise groups of excitable guests, maintaining control whilst staying totally immersed in your character and bringing the magic alive.
Training is provided in our stand-alone Grotto and a full costume will be provided.
