Work at the Museum

Coventry Transport Museum is part of the Culture Coventry charitable trust - occasionally we need to recruit new staff to the team, and we look for self-motivated and forward-thinking people.

Even if you are based behind the scenes, you need to be comfortable working with or around visitors in an environment where creating the right atmosphere is everything. Everyone in the team plays an active part in delivering our fantastic attraction to visitors.

All of our vacancies can be found listed here when they arise, but if you can’t wait to get involved why not check out our Volunteering Programme.

People from Black, Asian and Ethnically Diverse backgrounds, disabled, deaf and neurodivergent people are underrepresented in our workforce, so we particularly encourage applications from candidates in these groups.



Closing Date: 15th September 2023

About the role

We are looking for a number of individuals to play the role of Santa for our vintage Sleigh Ride Experience at Coventry Transport Museum. Assisted by a team of Elves you will be responsible for creating memorable visits by talking to children and their parents, listening to children's Christmas wishes, and posing for photos, all within a magical Christmas scene setting.

We are looking for candidates who:

Ideally have previous experience of playing the role of Santa in a grotto setting, or working with children; have a passion for working with children and families; have a passion for Christmas and understand the importance of the role to children, and demonstrate the required behaviours with confidence and enthusiasm; have good communication skills, are positive and flexible with a 'can do' attitude, to ensure a memorable experience for visitors.

Full training and Santa Costumes are provided, so if you can add the right 'ho ho ho' to our Christmas cheer and are available on the following dates - Nov 24th to 26th, Dec 1st to 3rd, 8th to 10th, 15th to 17th, 22nd and 23rd, then please apply.
