Garden centre’s recruitment drive for Santa and his little helpers begins

It may still be 142 days until Christmas but that hasn’t stopped the Brigg Garden Centre in Lincolnshire beginning its annual recruitment drive for Santa and his little helpers to work at the centre this festive season.

Grimsby Live reports the centre is on the hunt for a Santa, a Mrs Claus and elves to help out in the grotto.

Recruits will need to have superb customer service skills, acting or entertainment skills, a cheery disposition and be great with children.

You’ll need to be quick though, as applications close on 15 August.
