HALLOWSCREAM/TWEEN Opps Team Job Application

York Maze is looking for happy, outgoing and CORNfident people to join our team this Halloween in a wide range of roles! 

Hallowtween is aimed at families with children aged 10-15yrs and runs and for 6 afternoons during the October half term, Tue 26th to Sunday 31st, from 12.30pm until 5.30pm.

Hallowscream for grown-ups runs for 16 nights between 8th - 31st October from 6.30pm - 11.30pm.

We are looking for happy, outgoing, fun loving and hardworking people to join our award winning team!! York Maze prides itself on its staff, and we try and do things a bit differently to other places. We believe you should be having fun at work, and this reflects through our whole ethos.

We believe York Maze has one job, and that is to...CREATE HAPPINESS!!

To help you achieve this we have a set of shared values that we ALL work to!

Our values are...

Happiness & Laughter

Have fun at work! York Maze is not a big corporate entity. Be yourselves, have a laugh with the visitors, tell jokes, take the mickey, be silly. Share a laugh and a smile with your friends and visitors. If you are having fun the day will fly by!!

Honesty & Fairness

Be honest and fair in all you do. If you can help somebody, do so. If something is not working right, speak up! If you're not happy, say so.

Trust & Respect

We trust in you to look after our visitors, you are the face of the business. Please respect our visitors and treat them well, they pay your wages! Look after you colleagues, and respect each other, we all need to work together to create a great attraction! 

Hard Work & Focus

Focus on the job you are doing, and work hard at it. You are being paid to work! The visitors are your priority at all times, give them ALL your attention.

Working by these shared values helps us exceed expectations!

Most people expect theme park staff to be disinterested kids who look like they would rather be somewhere else. We pride ourselves on our team being the opposite of that!! If you can do the 4 things above, people will really appreciate it, and they will share their happiness too!

We are looking for people to work in admissions, operations, hospitality and retail. No previous experience is necessary, we just need positive people, with a "corn do" attitude!! We are ideally looking for candidates aged 18+ but will also consider 16+.

Pay Rates (including holiday pay) are:

  • £5.50/hr - Under 18 yrs
  • £7.50/hr - 18 to 20 yrs  
  • £9.36/hr - 21 to 22 yrs  
  • £9.98/hr - 23 yrs & over

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

You will need to have an outgoing, happy personality! You will be meeting thousands of new people each day. If you don’t like chatting to new people, please do not apply!

You will need to be adaptable and willing to muck-in where needed. Everyone is part of the team that delivers exceptional customer service, so you may be working managing the attraction queue lines one minute and cleaning down tables the next. 

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

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!

Please keep your answers brief and please read all sections carefully, and answer where required!
