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.
We are looking to appoint an Assistant Chef or cook to work on a full time basis in our Explorers Cafe. The normal weekly working hours are 37.5 hrs over 5 days with shifts starting at either 0800 or 0830. This would include working alternate weekends, bank holidays and during East Sussex state school holidays. The main duties are to assist the chef in running the kitchen and preparing the food in the main catering outlet of our busy visitor attraction. The assistant chef also covers for the chef in their absence. Applicants should have had experience working in a similar kitchen environment and ideally possess relevant catering and food safety qualifications.
