Catering 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.


Did you know we serve tonnes of chips and thousands of donuts each year on top of copious amounts of teas, coffees and ice creams to guests each and every day, helping to ensure their day in the Midlands premier family theme park a magical one!

Our Catering Guest Hosts fulfil a wide variety of tasks ensuring our guests get the best possible experience during their visit, delivering quality and passion every time through our variety of Catering outlets.

You could be operating tills, taking orders and providing great customer service or be responsible for preparing food, in one of our twenty-two catering outlets around the park or being responsible for keeping everything tidy, making sure tables are cleared and tidy and dishes washed.

Who are we looking for? - Individuals with a can-do attitude, a strong team ethos and a passion for great customer service. We work in a fun, fast paced environment so a great sense of humor is a must!! Experience of working with customers in a high-volume service catering environment would be desirable, although not essential as full training will be provided for the right person.
