Rides Guest Host

Salary in line with National Minimum Wage

One of the great things about working at Drayton is meeting new people and working in an environment that sees people having fun every day! We have a wide age range of different people working for us and lots of new faces every year, as well as those people who return to us season after season.

it’s an ideal job for school, college and university students who want some part-time work at the weekends and during the holidays. It also great for people who are looking for more hours and want to work weekdays during term-time.

This year, Drayton’s main season runs from 26th March until 1st November and the park opens every day apart from a few very quiet days during September and October.

Typically, the park opens at around 9:30/10:00am and closes around 5:00-6:00pm, other than our Fireworks weekend at the end of the season when we stay open until 9:00pm.

Working at Drayton is perfect as a first-time job for people wanting to learn new skills, but we also gladly welcome people with experience. Customer service is key and as a family run business, we pride ourselves in providing excellent service and a happy friendly face, to all our guests. If you’re an outgoing person who likes to work in a big team of people, then this is the job for you. On the contrary, if you prefer to work alone or in a smaller team then we can also accommodate your needs.

We are looking for enthusiastic team players who are reliable and flexible who want to work in the best fun location in the Midlands!

We offer some great benefits, including free ticket allocation, on-site free staff parking, subsidized meals, employee assistance programme as well as onsite staff discounts.

Our Guest Hosts Ride provide a great guest experience whilst ensuring that operating policies and procedures are followed, ensuring safety is number one priority.

As we look to the start of our 2020 season and our 70th anniversary we are still looking to recruit a number of Guest Hosts to join the team within our rides department.

If you are looking for a customer service role in an environment that make fun every day and the opportunity to work in a great team environment and enjoy the thrills of working in the Midlands premier family theme park, then this is the role for you!!!
