  • SplashWorld Slide tester

    Living in Scotland or the North West?? Here’s your chance to apply for the best job ever. LIVE!

    Imagine if your actual job was to test out our entire range of SplashWorld waterslides, lazy rivers and wave pools. Your office would be our sunny resorts across Europe and North Africa, and your desk chair would be a rubber ring. Sounds too good to be true, right? (I know, we can’t believe it either). If your dream job is more ‘making waves’ than ‘making coffee’ here’s the low-down on how you can land this enviable role of a lifetime.

    Who we’re looking for: Enthusiastic. Passionate. Crazy about waterparks. If that sounds like you, then this job would be right up your street. You need to be a fun-loving person with a great sense of humour, and happy to test and rate all manner of slides and rides at our SplashWorld resorts.

    What the position involves: After having far too much fun hurtling down waterslides, you’ll then report back to us at HQ and suggest new ideas for our customers – all the while bragging about your fab job on Facebook and Twitter. This is one deep end you won’t mind being thrown in to.

    How can I apply: As well as being able to apply on our website, we’ve got two exciting ‘Slide Tester Live’ regional events taking place next week in Glasgow and Blackpool.  Only the first 100 people to arrive get to apply live, so you’d better be quick! The details are below:

    Tuesday 19th February 2013 – 8:00am-10:30am @ Time Capsule Waterpark near GLASGOW

    Thursday 21st February 2013 – 6:00pm-8:30pm @ Sandcastle Waterpark in BLACKPOOL

    We recommend you arrive nice and early to make sure you’re among the first 100 applicants at each location.

    What happens at the regional events?

    • You’ll be asked to fill in a written form when you arrive, providing your contact details and telling us in roughly 1,000 characters (that’s about 100 words) why you’ve got what it takes to be our Slide Tester. This will help us get an idea of your style of writing, important for this one-of-a-kind role.

    • You’ll then be fitted with a head camera and sent whizzing down the slides to give us a 30 second pitch to camera – this is your chance to shine and show us why we should send you splashing all over the world. We’re looking for fun, quirky and memorable! You’ll only get one chance to record your pitch so make sure you think about what you want to say beforehand.

    After the events and our closing date of 28th February 2013, we’ll be whittling down all of the applications to a lucky five who’ll then compete in a final challenge at a SplashWorld hotel at one of our sunny overseas destinations.

    This is an opportunity not to be missed – life’s too short to spend it clock-watching in a 9-5 job! A summer of fun is just a slide away…
