Job hunters are being urged to attend an open recruitment day at Warrington theme park Gulliver’s next month where 100 jobs will be up for grabs.

The family-run company hopes its recruitment drive will appeal to unemployed people from across the region.

Gulliver’s managing director Julie Dalton, whose father Ray Phillips founded the theme park chain, said: “We’re offering North West job hunters the chance to apply for well-paid positions with lots of opportunities to progress in the industry.

“It’s a chance for newly jobless and long-term unemployed people to get back into work and re-train in a welcoming environment – experience isn’t always necessary as we offer great training and development programmes, the main goal for us is to find people with the drive and enthusiasm to fit in well with the Gulliver’s team.”

Jobs available include ride operators, entertainers, maintenance workers, catering staff, gardeners and cleaners, as well as SplashZone marshals and Nerf Zone warriors in Gulliver’s latest on-site attractions.

The recruitment day will be held on Saturday 15 March from 10am.
