A Job Like No Other

Have you ever been to a theme park and thought…’I’d love to work here!’? Well today is your lucky day because THORPE PARK Resort are hiring!


There are loads of different jobs at Thorpe Park. We have many different departments ranging from gardening and site presentations to food and beverage, retail and of course, our rides and attractions and a theme park is a great place to build a large, varied skillset. 

Theme parks are FUN places. There aren’t many jobs where you can make people’s day while working on some of the most famous rides in the world. We look for bubbly, outgoing people who have a passion for providing great experiences, so if you think that sounds a bit like you, read on!


We work around you…

THORPE PARK Resort is a great place to work if you are still in education. We know that being a student can be a stressful time. You can tailor your hours around your study commitments and balance your education with making some dollar.


Friends for life…

Teamwork is essential on The Island. Working on rides is really fun but like any job, there are definitely stressful times. Your management and the rest of your team are always there to support you and honestly, you all become a big family.  

We also have a great mix of socials throughout the season. Boat parties, club takeovers and of course at the park, where you can dance and coast into the early hours, surrounded by our iconic rides.


The Merlin way...

We don’t like to toot our own horn, but Merlin is a great company to work for. We’re a world leader when it comes to entertainment attractions and have some of the most recognisable brands under our wing. Legoland, The Dungeons, Madam Tussaud’s; all owned by Merlin! Working for a company like Merlin can look great on your CV and gives you a taste for working for a globally recognised brand and the expectations that go with that.

We’re international too, so if you catch the travel bug and the right job comes up, there’s scope to move around and experience different cultures and places to work.


Fun is at the heart of THORPE PARK Resort. If any of this sounds appealing to you, have a look here. There’s a reason we call it The Island Like No Other…




Latest information regarding Coronavirus

Further to recent updates from the Government on the response to the Covid-19 coronavirus outbreak, we have taken the very difficult decision to close Thorpe Park Resort until further notice.

Have a short break booked when the Resort is closed?
Following the latest Government guidelines (issued on 10th May), and given the continued uncertainty about when we will be able to reopen, we are now asking guests with short breaks booked between 1st June up to and including 3rd July to move your booking free of charge (subject to availability). Please visit the Manage My Booking site to rearrange your booking.

Have a Park ticket pre-booked when the Resort is closed?
If you have booked a ticket to visit Thorpe Park Resort during the closure period your ticket will be valid for use on any date during the 2020 season (excluding FRIGHT NIGHTS and pre-advertised closed dates as outlined on our website). Further information for guests with pre-booked and promotional tickets will be published on our website prior to opening.

We are determined to be here for you, your friends and your family offering otherworldly thrills and helping you create fantastic memories as we have done for decades and will continue to do for many more.

We’ll be sharing our full plans soon. In the meantime, please keep smiling, clapping and supporting each other. See you soon!
