Assistant / TRAINEE to our Scenic Artist

We are searching for an enthusiastic person who is required to assist our very experienced Scenic Artist in a range of hands-on jobs around the park, whilst being trained in a variety of practical skills.

About you :
this is a unique opportunity for someone who wishes to gain a wide range of practical skills, or to add to their existing abilities. Ideally, the successful applicant should be able to provide a portfolio showing competence in drawing and painting, together with knowledge of colour. You must be able to demonstrate reasonable practical abilities, for example be competent to work with power tools or be willing to learn. You will work at heights as and when required, once trained. You will be working in a small team, as well as independently, and must be comfortable in working alongside park guests and interacting with them as necessary, displaying first class customer service.

About the role : Dinosaur Adventure is an award-winning, high quality visitor attraction which attracts over 300,000 visitors per year. This is a full-time position and it is anticipated that over a period of three years, the successful candidate will take on a range of training from our current scenic artist. This is a new role and one which we hope will enable the applicant to play a long term and integral part within the park. The Park is expanding and over the last six years the Scenic Artist has been involved in many aspects, including large scale murals, making a life-size puppet, theming birthday party rooms, repair and maintenance work to animatronic dinosaurs, the casting of dinosaur skin using platinum cure silicone, casting and replacing dinosaur teeth, claws and tails, and assisting with the production of scenery/scare attractions for the hugely successful Halloween event, “PrimEVIL”. Much of the work will revolve around maintaining and improving sculptures on our “Dinosaur Trail”, some of which are concrete, whilst others are fibreglass. Paints used can range from artists’ acrylics to masonry paints, to pigmented polyester resin, hand applied or sprayed using compressors or airless spraying equipment This is a full-time position, working an average minimum of 40 hours/week over five days, 28 days’ holiday including Bank Holidays, and a rare opportunity to play a part in the development of a super, family-friendly park whilst learning new skills.
