Christmas Elves Wanted
16 to 99
Full Details of Job / Opportunity
We are SEA LIFE Weymouth and we are part of the magical Merlin Entertainments!
Right now, we’re looking for Actors to play Christmas Elves and help make our attraction beam with that festive feeling!
About the role
As a Christmas Elf you will support our attraction during the festive period. This will involve being in character as an Elf (costume provided), assisting with various activities and supporting Father Christmas in his enchanting Christmas Cabin.
This is a guest facing role, to support and engage with guests that are visiting our attraction 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!
This role is Part Time and offered on a Seasonal contract as the event starts 30th November and ends 24th December. You will be working a variety of shifts including weekends as required. There will be a mix of shifts throughout the weeks during the event, ranging from day shifts (11am-3pm), evening shifts (3pm-8pm), all day shifts (11am-8pm) and Sundays (1.30pm-8pm). This will include school holidays and flexibility will be required as times and dates of shifts may vary.
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. Ideally, you'll have worked in a similar fast paced, guest facing environment and it goes without saying you'll have plenty of experience of engaging with children, preferably within an entertainment or events capacity.
About the benefits
We pay an hourly rate of £8.55.
