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.

Playland Assistants

We are currently looking to appoint new Playland Assistants to work on a Casual basis.  These members of the team spend most of the day outdoors operating our many attractions such as the Hello Kitty and Go Safari rides and the extra activities like the climbing wall and inflatable slide.  The rest of the time is spent tidying up and keeping the place looking spick-and-span.  Jobs include picking up litter, emptying bins and sweeping up.

Applicants must be at least 18 years old, be able to start straight away and be available to work at weekends and at October half term.   The joining rates of pay per hour are £5.60 for 18-20 year olds, £7.05 for 21-24 year olds and £7.50 for those 25 years and over. 

If you would like to apply for these positions then please complete this Application Form by hand and return it by post or email to [email protected].  If posting the form please take care to use the correct postage stamps for the size and weight of the envelope to ensure that it will be delivered.


We are currently looking for volunteers to supervise our walk-through enclosures; Lemurland, Lory Landing and our bats and sloths as well as our touch tables of animal artefacts.  Minimum age 16, must be confident at speaking to the public. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer please email [email protected].
