Our main recruitment drive is December to July– We recommend applying as early as you can, because it can be extremely competitive!

Extrovert, Outgoing, Enthusiastic, Lively, Energetic… These five words best describe the type of person we, at Adventure Island, are looking for! So if that sounds like you and you are over 16 years old, officially left school and have taken your GCSE’s… You could be our sort of person!

Our mission is to “To make our guests happiest they have ever been within the safest possible environment, to ensure their regular return and recommendation to others!” That can only happen through our incredibly enthusiastic staff, who are committed to deliver fun, laughter, joy, happiness and magic all day long. They are schooled in the exquisite art of entertainment! And put through their paces when it comes to the serious business of health & safety, where every team member is coached and assessed on a daily basis.


And now for the perks…


Happy staff = happy guests, and you’ll do well to find a team as happy as ours! Maybe that’s why we’re a Top-5 Attraction on TripAdvisor! Working for Stockvale isn’t just a job – it’s an experience! Stockvale staff are a community as close as family meaning that you will make life-long bonds and memories you’ll never forget. Of course you may have your own commitments such as education, but we can offer flexible working hours around your lifestyle so you won’t have to sacrifice too much.

We get that you’ll be working hard, so we make room for fun outside of work too! For example, last year we held our own events just before summer. Some of these included Stockvale Sports Day, Official Stockvale Football Tournament, Riley’s Pool night!

Every year we host our Star Awards, which is an Annual Awards Ceremony to thank our staff members for the hard work through out the year. The awards are voted for by our very own staff and the event is free to all departments. It is the event of the year and is an opportunity to get dressed up and enjoy an evening with your team!

As if this wasn’t enough, we also give our staff members massive discounts on outlets throughout Stockvale. Whether that’s minimum 50% off of food and drink at Adventure Island or seeing Penguins and Sharks at Sealife Adventure for just £5, there’s big savings to be made for you!
