Beaulieu is searching for a star cast of costumed characters to bring its vibrant past to life in medieval Beaulieu Abbey, Victorian Palace House, WW II’s Secret Army exhibition and the National Motor Museum.
From storytellers to performers, the south coast attraction is appealing for a new team of talented staff who will take up roles from a secret agent or abbey monk to a Victorian cook or 1930s country garage mechanic.
If you can share the sonnets of Shakespeare or enjoy imaginative dress-up and are passionate about making Beaulieu’s rich history playful and fun for visitors, then the attraction is hiring for new positions in 2020.
Louise Gay, from Beaulieu’s Visitor Services, said: “We are looking for knowledgeable, idiosyncratic and playful performers who can give intimate and charming performances – whether that is on a stage or at our till points!
“Here at Beaulieu, we are bringing our exciting history to life and need talented staff and performers who can hop across time and bring our vibrant past to the present. We need storytellers who have a desire to create memorable experiences for visitors and bring an understanding of a bygone era to generations of the future.”
Applicants would need to work both independently and as part of a close-knit team. Holding a driving licence would be desirable, while they would need to be able to work variable hours including weekends. A variety of roles are available, from breathing life into some of Beaulieu’s historic characters to creating new roles and helping to make great memories on visitors’ days out.
To join the Beaulieu Visitor Engagement team, please download and complete an application form from the Beaulieu website here and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org. The closing date for initial applications is February 17th, though further applications after that date will still be considered.
