Owners of the Gulliver’s Kingdom theme park have gotten ready for the busy season early embarking on a late-February recruitment drive.
Opening its doors on 17 March, the park is to celebrate its 40th anniversary with its biggest season to date, bringing a breadth of celebratory events, rides and attractions all to feature heavily throughout the period.
The family-run business in Matlock, Bath offers employees more than an average seasonal job, as general manager Lee Stacey was keen to highlight.
“From starting with Gulliver’s as a ride operator, I moved onto rides supervisor, rides team leader, rides manager, operations manager and then became general manager seven years ago,” he said.
“My career at Gulliver’s has been very varied – I love coming to work each day not knowing what challenges the day will throw at me.”
“The entire management team at Gulliver’s Kingdom have all started in seasonal positions then moved up through the business. The scope for progress in the company is massive.”
Dean Kimberley, director of guest services at Gulliver’s Kingdom, added: “Our recruitment days are always well attended by people keen to begin a career with a family-friendly employer that can offer a varied and interesting career. We had more than 500 people apply for each of the recruitment drives for Gulliver’s World and Gulliver’s Land recently.”
