What happens at an Assessment Centre?

It varies from role to role, but you’ll probably complete short exercises in teams and attend an interview. It’s the ideal chance to find out more about what it’s like to work for us, and for us to find out more about you. Assessment Centres help us select the right people for the business, and should be fun for you too.

Do you have on-site or local accommodation?

We do not have any on-site or local accommodation for employees.  If you do require help finding accommodation, we can provide the details of a local estate agent once you have successfully secured a position.

What’s the dress code at work?

If you’re in a customer-facing role you’ll wear a uniform. Our dress code in all non-uniform areas is fairly flexible. And, of course, in some roles you’ll even get to wear a costume.

Shifts vary depending on the role and department. We’ll agree them with you at recruitment stage.

Is it a very formal environment to work in?

How can it be when our focus is fun? We firmly believe that the happier you are in your work, the more our guests will enjoy being here. Without a doubt the roles can be tough and demanding – it takes a special kind of person to be as friendly and positive at the end of the day as they are at the beginning. But our teams are welcoming, committed and support each other to get the job done. And remember there'll be plenty of people in the same boat as you. On top of that, all our managers operate an open door policy, so there's always someone to talk to if you need to.

What’s the company social scene like?

All areas of Merlin have their own social clubs and hold social events throughout the year. After work drinks are also popular. Our Resort social club runs regular events and membership entitles you to a whole host of discounts.

Will I get free tickets?

Yes! We’ll issue you with a pass that allows you, and your friends and family, to enjoy many of our fabulous attractions and theme parks once you have passed your introductory period.
