Rack Up Your Credentials Under The Tower

Do you long to make every day a fancy dress day?  Are you desperate to leer from a dark corner at unsuspecting tourists?  Do you think interior design means adding a few more cobwebs?

That’s right, it’s time to elect a new mayor for Blackpool!

By mayor I mean actor and by Blackpool I mean Blackpool Tower Dungeon.  But you knew that didn’t you? If you didn’t guess, your dreams of becoming mayor might still be attainable.  Did you know the Layton Ward has just lost its councillor?  This might be your big chance!

But there is more than once place where evil laughs are actively encouraged in this town.  Blackpool Tower Dungeon has been doing a roaring trade since it opened in 2011.  We’ve all seen the blood-soaked jester, the sneaking smuggler and the cackling witches loitering on Bank Hey Street.  Once you pass these charming regulars, you’ll find yourself mingling with the fabulous cast of actors who bring storytelling to life within the underground shadows of our famous Victorian landmark.

Now, you’re not going to get rich working in The Dungeon, and the hours are variable, but hey – dressing up and scaring strangers!  Contracts are short term, running until the end of season in November.  If you are a budding actor looking for a stepping stone in your professional career, this might be just what you need.  Hurry though, applications must be in by Wednesday 19 February.

If dressing up doesn’t appeal, you can still join the team at The Tower – they need people to control the rugrats in Jungle Jims and sell merchandise at the top of The Tower – in The Eye! These are zero hour contracts so you might be in a great position to take up one of the benefits of working at The Tower: free entry to Alton Towers, Thorpe Park, LEGOLAND and the EDF Energy Londo Eye!  Having said that, you might be working every day – that’s the beauty of a zero hour contract; you just never know.  In many ways these are the perfect positions for those who enjoy a career which entails an element of surprise.

You can follow the Tower Dungeon escapades on Twitter or Facebook.
