LBTB Launches Kids Writing Competition
Merlin Entertainments receives over 150 job applications.
Entertainment giant Merlin, the company which owns Madame Tussauds Blackpool and SEA LIFE received a record number of job applications this week, more than 150 from around the region, as it announced vacancies for its two new attractions The Blackpool Tower Dungeon and The Blackpool Tower Eye.
The number of applications for such positions as Cabin Crew member in The Blackpool Tower Eye and Retail Assistant in The Blackpool Tower Dungeon beat the huge amount of interest in the auditions to become a Dungeon actor last week.
Merlin announced this week that it would be embarking on a hiring spree before its launch of The new Blackpool Tower. Since its arrival in 2010, the company has taken on more than 50 new employees and by the end of 2011, Merlin will top 300 employees in total just in its Blackpool attractions.
Laura Bye HR Manager for Merlin Entertainments in Blackpool said: “We have been inundated with people interested in all sorts of positions across all of our attractions. We do have some of the most interesting jobs out there; recently we have hired a performance manager and 20 actors for The Blackpool Tower Dungeon.”
“We are looking for enthusiastic individuals, motivated team players and most of all people who are passionate when it comes to providing excellent customer service.”
It is an exciting time to join the company as it opens two new attractions within The Blackpool Tower on September 1st – The Blackpool Tower Eye with 4D cinema experience and The Blackpool Tower Dungeon.
