Open Roles at Airfield Estate

Christmas Elf

Release your inner Elf.

The team at Airfield Estate's award-winning Christmas Experience are looking to recruit enthusiastic, friendly Elves, to help Santa at this very busy time of year.

Elves should be infectiously cheerful, with warm personalities helping to create lasting memories for all visitors to Airfield’s Christmas Experience.

Working with our established team, Elves will ensure Santa’s mailroom, fireside, gingerbread kitchen, Claus café, woodshed and Christmas carousel all run smoothly. Newly inducted Elves must be 100% reliable and confident to engage with visitors of all ages.

An artistic flair, involvement in amateur dramatics, previous experience as an Elf – or simply an abundance of Christmas cheer – are all an advantage.
