A bit about the jobs & what we expect from you
York maze is not the biggest attraction in Yorkshire, and it may not have a load of great rides…..But we can still give people the best day out of the summer!!
We do this by treating our visitors like royalty!! Our great team has won the “best customer service” award at the Yorkshire tourism awards, and we are very proud of this. If you feel you can help us be even more amazing, then we would love to hear from you.
We have a wide variety of jobs on offer, suiting people with all sorts of different skills. We are particularly keen to find people with skills that would lend themselves to working in our “shows” and also people with an interest in food and service for our catering teams. Some of the types of jobs are listed below:
- Retail and sales.(tickets/food/activities)
- Role play & acting.(in our shows)
- Play supervision.(slides, games, inflatables)
- Food prep and service.
- Hosting groups and story telling.(trailer rides, pig racing)
- Litter picking, site maintenance etc.
- Tractor driving.
You will need to be available to work 5 days a week right through the season including some training days the week before we open. (So please do not apply if you are planning a week’s holiday!!) we open on 14th of July through till the 3rd of September.
It will be possible to swap a few days with others on your rota as long as you can sort it out yourselves.
It will be pot luck on which days of the week you work, but it will be the same 5 days each week once the rota is created.
You will need to be able to get to the maze, the bus service is not brilliant, and so car or pushbike is best.
