Absolutely not. Working at Warwick Castle isn’t about reciting facts or knowing certain dates off by heart. It’s about giving our guests a great day out. So as long as you’ve got the personal qualities we’re looking for you don’t need a history GCSE or ‘O’ level to your name!
A positive, upbeat attitude, and a real sense of fun are top of our list, whatever role you apply for. Also key are a flair for teamwork plus plenty of drive and confidence, plus a great sense of humour! Beyond that, some roles naturally will call for specific skills, details of which will be found on individual job adverts in the Job Search & Apply section.
We offer great prospects – but we’re not a traditional heritage site so don’t have a need for people whose interest in history is solely practical or scholarly. As our business is entertainment, we’re probably not the right place for you to launch or develop a career.
We recognise our important role in the preservation and conservation of our ancient site and the historic treasures we hold, and take this responsibility seriously.
However, we use specialist contractors and consultants to oversee conservation, preservation or research work on a scheduled and as required basis, and therefore do not require or employ full time specialists in these areas.
We’re flattered that you want to offer your help, but as we’re not a traditional heritage site or museum, and operate as a successful commercial business, we do not have a need for the traditional volunteers that heritage organisations would normally seek and utilise.
You will automatically receive an email confirming receipt of your application. You can then expect to hear from us again within the next 14 days.
Yes – we will contact you either way to confirm whether or not you have been successful.
We use a range of selection methods depending on the role you have applied for. For our customer facing roles, you will most likely be invited to attend an assessment centre. Other roles may also be recruited through an assessment centre, as well as utilising other selection methods such as an interview, preparing and delivering a presentation, or completing a personality questionnaire. Acting and performing roles are recruited through an audition process.
Assessment centres are usually group based, and there will be other applicants there with you. You will usually be asked to take part in a number of group tasks with other applicants, although depending on the role some of the tasks may be individual exercises.
Our assessment centres are designed to allow us to identify certain skills and personal qualities which are essential for our unique business, and which are not as easy to identify using other selection methods. But they are also designed to be fun too, and will give you a real flavour of our culture and what it’s like to work for us.
Depending on the role you have applied for, an assessment centre can last for a few hours, or sometimes a whole day. An individual interview may also form part of the assessment centre process.
Our only advice is to remember that you're trying to make a good first impression!
Once again we will contact you to confirm the outcome. Our preferred methods of communication are by email or telephone, so when completing your application please ensure your details are entered correctly and are then kept up to date. You can log into your profile anytime and update your details.
By joining the Merlin Group, you’ll be part of a company at the leading edge of the leisure and tourism business. We offer a highly rewarding, fun and motivating working environment and create opportunities and challenges for our employees to fulfil their potential and feel part of the company's success.
We also offer a range of permanent and temporary roles in various areas of the business to suit the needs of different people.
All customer facing roles will require you to wear a uniform, and some positions could even involve you wearing a period costume instead! We operate a fairly flexible policy on dress code in all non-uniform areas, so ties and jackets are not usually required.
Shifts and working hours will vary according to your position and department. These will be discussed at the recruitment stage, but being such a unique business, the need to be flexible is a natural element of all our jobs.
How can we be when it's our mission to provide fun!?! We firmly believe that if you enjoy your time working here our customers are much more likely to have an enjoyable time too, and our business can only get stronger. Without a doubt the roles can be very challenging and demanding, but as a business that’s focused on creating enchantment, wonder and thrill, you could not ask for a more unique and exciting work environment, where our employees have just as much fun as our guests!
All attractions have their own social clubs and hold social events throughout the year. Recent events have included summer BBQs, a quiz night, ice skating trips, theatre nights, party nights, and seasonal events such as Halloween and the annual Christmas party. After work drinks are also popular!
Yes! After a qualifying period all employees are issued with a pass enabling them, their friends and family to experience our fabulous attractions and theme parks for free.
Eligibility to work in the UK is a prerequisite for employment with The Merlin Group. You will need to provide proof of right to work in the UK when you come in for an interview.
Some roles do require applicants to be over a certain age. Where such restrictions apply, it is to ensure we adhere to applicable legislation or local bye-laws.
Legislation and local bye-laws specifically place restrictions on the type of work young people are able to undertake, and due to the nature of our specific jobs and our unique work environment, most of our positions require the job holder to have completed their statutory schooling. This means after the point when you can legally leave school, which is the last Friday in June the year you take your GCSEs.
Other legal restrictions mean some positions can only be held by those 18 and over.
Warwick Castle is proud of its position in the local community and will always look to support local people as much as possible.
