Gulliver's seeks next round of applicants for trainee management scheme

UK theme park operator Gulliver's is accepting the next round of applicants for its in-house training programme, as the company seeks fresh new talent to lead the company in the years to come.

Entering its fourth year, the programme has resulted in 11 individuals working in managerial positions for the company, with the recruits undergoing Gulliver’s Trainee Management Programme.

During the year-long training scheme, trainees will complete placements at each of Gulliver’s three parks, working both peak and quiet periods with a course designed to equip them with leadership skills, practical experience, technical understanding and product knowledge.

The most recent set of graduates – five in total – have all been given permanent management positions. This year’s programme will accept six applicants, each of whom will work in all areas of the Gulliver’s business, such as catering, costumes, rides and retail.

“The Trainee Management Programme is a truly unique experience,” said Dean Kimberley, director of Guest Services at Gulliver’s.

“There isn’t another course in the country like it and we are very proud to be paving the way in theme park management training programmes. The trainees make us proud year on year and their efforts shine through, which is why they’re offered jobs within the company upon completion – those who complete the course, after seeing and being involved with the nitty gritty side of stuff as well, are the people we want joining the Gulliver’s family.”
