Festive helpers in Swindon will be involved in hosting Santa’s iconic breakfast and spreading some cheer during the most important meal of the day.

Appointed seasonal team members will receive a full training programme to get them ready for a mid-November start date.

Sarah Murray, who leads on Dobbies’ festive line up, is looking for Santas and Elves that have a passion for ensuring a magical experience for all family members. She said: “My main aim is that our customers have the most cheerful Christmas possible and we’re looking for helpers to assist us in delivering the ultimate festive fun in our Swindon store.

“Santa’s boots are hard to fill, and we’re looking for people who have a passion for Christmas and are great with children. They’ll need to help us bring some magic from the North Pole to our Swindon store, so we’re looking for charismatic individuals worthy of Santa’s hat.”

Santa from Dobbies Stirling store, who has held the role for seven years, explained why he loves granting Christmas wishes year on year. He said: “Christmas is such a magical time and it’s been a delight to have flown with Rudolph all the way from the North Pole to make sure all families that choose to celebrate with us have a memorable festive season.”

Santa’s Breakfast will take place in Dobbies’ Swindon store from 25 November.

There will be a variety of vacancies available in Swindon. If you think you’ve got what it takes to be Santa or his helper, and want to spread some festive cheer this year, applications are now open.
