Be part of the Drusillas Park team and work in a varied, fun and friendly environment!
In early January we start our main recruitment campaign to employ staff on a casual basis to work throughout our busy periods; primarily weekends, bank holidays and school holidays with the possibility of some additional work mid-week through the summer months. We look to take on Team Assistants to help out in retail, catering, admissions and attractions operation. None of these roles have any involvement with the animals.
Our recruitment campaign begins at the very start of each year to enable us to be fully staffed and ready for our first two busy periods, the February and Easter holidays.
Permanent roles and other casual roles that may become vacant throughout the year will be listed below.
Events and Entertainment Assistant
We are currently recruiting a casual member of staff to join the Events and Entertainment team at the Park. This is a performing role so experience or a passion for being on stage/drama is desirable. Due to very strict character requirements successful applicants must be 5ft or shorter in height and be of a slim build. Applicants outside of this criteria cannot be considered. Applicants must be 16 and over and be available to work weekends and school holidays. There will be approximately 20 performing days work per year together with other casual work opportunities if desired. Please complete this Application Form and return it by post or email it directly to firstname.lastname@example.org together with your height and weight measurements.
Drusillas is currently recruiting a skilled handyperson on a casual basis for busy periods up to two days per week. We need someone who has solid all-round experience covering carpentry, electrics and plumbing to help in our busy Estate team. We think this might suit a recently retired person who has years of experience in the building trade and who wants to keep active by joining a small professional team in a fun environment. Some weekend work is likely to be required. To apply, please complete this Application Form by hand and return it by post or email to email@example.com.
When posting the forms take care to use the correct postage stamps for the size and weight of the envelope to ensure that it will be delivered.
Please check this page regularly for updated information on specific job opportunities.
We require volunteers to supervise our walk-through enclosures (Lemurland, Lory Landing, bats/sloths) and touch tables of HM Customs seized artefacts.
