We are looking to recruit enthusiastic, dedicated and friendly individuals to join our team and develop with us. We offer apprenticeship roles in a variety of areas both at our head office and at our parks.
Apprenticeships are an excellent way of gaining new skills and developing your knowledge whilst working ... and being paid. You get the benefit of both the hands-on experience of actually performing the everyday tasks and duties, and also the understanding and knowledge to back it up.
Courses typically take 12-18 months to complete, but that doesn't mean you have to leave at the end. We'd like to continue developing you and helping you reach your full potential, whether that is on a higher level course, or through in-house mentoring.
Read about the different apprenticeships we offer below.
What is an Apprenticeship?
Apprenticeships are essentially a qualification and a job rolled in to one. The skills and knowledge you learn from your tutors will help you in your job role and the skills and knowledge you learn whilst working will help you achieve the qualification.
Apprenticeships can be undertaken by anyone, at any age, at any stage in their work life. They can help those starting out in the world of work, those who have worked for years and want a change, those who want to develop and many many more.
