Dobbies need a Father Christmas and elves to work in grotto

Dobbies is on the hunt for Father Christmas and his elves to work in their festive grotto this Christmas.

We all know Santa himself lives in Lapland, and his workload in the run-up to Christmas means he often he needs some help bringing festive cheer to locations around the region.

So the garden centre is advertising for a number of roles and you won’t have to travel to the North Pole each day for work.

This year is like no other, following the coronavirus pandemic and the grotto experience will be slightly different.

Families will not be able to be closer than 1.5m to Santa and will choose their own present.

It will be mandatory that customers over 11 years wear a face mask.

The elf assisting Santa will also be required to maintain a 1.5m distance and wear a facemask.

Men ages 28 or over can apply to take on the role of Father Christmas, no experience is necessary and you will be provided with full training.

Santa, who will be provided with a costume, will be aided by a Christmas Elf and will be responsible for creating a memorable visit for the children, by providing them with a gift and posing for photos.

Successful candidates will be able to demonstrate a friendly character and cheerful personality and they’ll work as part of a team of Santas, with shifts tailored to your availability.

But if you don’t fancy being Father Christmas, then you could be an elf instead, responsible for greeting families and getting children ready to meet the man himself.

You’ll be expected to help Santa out while he meets the families and also help with ticket and photo sales at the till point.

Successful candidates should be able to demonstrate a friendly character and cheerful personality.
