Alton Towers recruiting for 400 positions

Staffordshire theme park Alton Towers says it needs more people to work there this autumn.

400 jobs are currently up for grabs, to work in restaurants and bars, as part of conference and events teams, and in the ticket offices - as well as on rides at the attraction.

Hopefuls could also land a job as anything from a zombie or vampire, as part of their Halloween 'spooktacular' Scarefest.

Recruitment events are taking place tomorrow, Saturday September 15th, at the Quality Hotel in Hanley or The Guild Hall in Cheadle on between 9am and 3pm.

At these events they will be able to meet teams, and chat with them about working at the theme park, and the benefits such as Merlin attraction tickets, fortnightly pay and employee transport.

Those who are interested can also have a short interview on the day.
