A bit about the jobs & what we expect from you

York maze is a seasonal visitor attraction, based around a growing crop of maize plants. The plants are not ready to use as a maze until July, so we use our beautiful barn complex as a wedding venue.

The weddings at York maze tend to be less formal than most weddings. We allow the guests the freedom to choose their own food, and to camp over for the weekend if they like.

You guys will be one of the most important parts of the guest’s day with us. If you can give them great service, along with a big smile, you will make their special day even more memorable!!

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 EVER.

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 if you feel you can help us be even more amazing, then we would love to hear from you.

We need staff to help with kitchen, bar and table service throughout our wedding season.

Shifts are available on most Saturdays and some Wednesdays from mid March through until the start of July. The shifts can be all day, from mid-day or evening only.

Pay is £7.90hr.

There is no public transport to the maze, so you will need to be able to get here. (it’s a 20 min cycle ride from uni campus)

You will be the faces of York maze; you are the most important part of the business. When people leave, it is you that they will remember; you have the chance to make their day fantastic.

We will give you the power to do this!

Our goal as an attraction is:

"To give every single visitor an a-mazing experience."

Our values are:

  1. Happiness & Laughter
    Have fun at work; share a laugh and a smile with your friends and visitors. If you are having fun the day will fly by!
  2. Honesty & Fairness
    Be honest and fair in all you do. If someone needs help, help them. If you need help say so. Treat everyone as you would wish to be treated.
  3. Trust & Respect
    We trust you to ensure our visitors happiness and safety, you are the face of The Maze. The visitors are the reason you are here. They pay your wages! Please treat them with respect. Look out for your collegues; we all need to trust each other and work together to create an a-mazing attraction.
  4. Hard work & Focus
    Focus on the job you are doing, and work hard at it. Take pride in the job you are doing, be proud of our attraction, it is you that makes it. The visitors are your priority at all times, focus on them and how you can make their day better!

If this sounds like the sort of place you would like to work please fill in the application form below.

Please keep your answers brief.

There are no wrong or right answers, we just want to know a bit more about the type of person you are, and if and where you might fit into our team.
