WHO ARE WE LOOKING FOR?
We looking for happy, outgoing, fun loving and hardworking people to join our award winning team!!

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...
But how are we going to do this?? It’s easy……….
Have fun at work, share a laugh with everyone you meet. Chat to our visitors, tell jokes, sing songs and be silly. Happiness is infectious (happy staff = happy visitors)
Look after yourselves, your colleagues and our visitors. Be honest and fair in all you do. If you can see someone needs help, help them. If you need help with ANYTHING please ask. We are all here for each other.
Take pride in the job you are doing, be proud of our attraction, it is you that makes it what it is. Keep the place spotless. Do your job to the best of your ability.
These 3 things will ensure you….
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 3 things above, people will really appreciate it, and they will share their happiness too!
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 Fridays from mid March through until the start of July. The shifts can be all day, from mid-day or evening only.
Pay Rates are:
£8.70/hr Under 25's
£9.20/hr Over 25's
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, some days we can be very quiet and you may get bored, and some days we can get over 3000 visitors and you will not have time to think.
You will be the faces of The Amazing Wedding Company at 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!!
