Candidates in Edinburgh can apply to work in Santa’s Grotto this Christmas
The hunt is on for Santa to work in Dobbies Edinburgh store this Christmas.
In partnership with Great Grottos, the magical experience is one of the most anticipated events in the Dobbies’ Christmas calendar, and suitable candidates are being called on to fill Santa’s boots.
The safety of customers and team members is Dobbies’ number one priority and as a result the grotto experience will be different this year. Santa will be adhering to social distancing guidelines with children selecting their own gift.
Santa’s elves will also maintain their distance and wear a face covering at all times, with customers over 11-years-old also required to wear a face covering.
Graeme Jenkins, CEO at Dobbies, said: “Santa’s Grotto is one of our most popular festive experiences in our Edinburgh store and the role of Santa is perfect for enthusiastic individuals who are keen to ensure our customers have a first-class experience.
“We will be closely following Government guidelines to ensure all events from our Christmas programme are safe and enjoyable for all.”
Applicants aged 28 years and over are invited for the role of Father Christmas, with a full training programme provided for those who are successful. This is a highly rewarding and enjoyable role guaranteed to get customers into the Christmas spirit, and successful candidates will be responsible for creating memorable moments for visiting families and children.
Great Grottos are looking for reliable, hard-working individuals with a cheerful personality, who are able to stay in character and adhere to company values.
Successful candidates will begin work from 14 November, apply HERE
Tickets for Santa’s Grotto are available to book online, with customers encouraged to book in advance to avoid disappointment. Customers can also Book with Confidence, with a full refund provided by Dobbies if the event is cancelled.
