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, but as the plants are not ready to use as a maze until July, we use our beautiful barn complex as a wedding venue in the spring months.

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!!

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

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

Pay Rates (including holiday pay) are:

  • £6.00/hr - Under 18 yrs
  • £8.70/hr - 18 to 20 yrs  
  • £9.19/hr - 21 to 24 yrs  
  • £9.77/hr - 25 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 - If you don’t like chatting to new people, please do not apply!

You will be the faces of The Amazing Wedding Company, you are the most important part of the business. You have the chance to make their day fantastic & we will give you the power to do this!!
