Bounce into a new job at InflataSpace in the North-East

A North East-based permanent indoor inflatable theme park is recruiting for a host of new roles.

Recruitment is underway for “motivated, ambitious and passionate” recruits to join InflataSpace, as well as a new pirate-themed Fun Shack indoor play centre, which is set to open next month.

Jobs roles at both parks include park centre manager, assistant manager, receptionist/bookings assistant, inflatable supervisor, birthday party host, baristas and servers as well as catering staff.

The park, located within Newcastle’s Benfield Business Park, next to the Walkergate Metro station, will be space themed. Visitors will be able to slide down “extreme” rocket drop slides, bounce on giant inflatable planets, get suited up in inflatable sumo wrestling rings and take on challengers atop the gladiator podium with battle sticks.

The pirate-themed Fun Shack indoor play centre will let North-East youngsters take to the high seas on a pirate battle ship, explore the pirate village and slide into Waterfall Island and boasts a giant four-storey playframe, high ropes crossings, a cannonball arena, rubber dingy slides and a football pitch, as well as a dedicated ‘Tiny Tots’ area.

Management anticipates the creation of 100 jobs for the North-East in what is clearly an expanding jobs market. Plus it sounds great fun, too!
