Santa's Lapland Elf

'Santa's little helper'!

Becoming one of Santa’s Elves is a truly magical task, you will assist Santa Claus to ensure each families visit to Lapland is as special and magical as possible. Elves are only ever seen by our guests as Elves, and not in any other capacity in order to keep the believability. This involves character work, endless energy and a love for Christmas magic. You must adhere to the Elf character at all times. While portraying your inner elf you will frolic and play with the guests at the airport on arrival, escort the guests to Santa’s cabin for their magical visit, ensure all the presents are wrapped ready for Santa and take part in elf sightings at various locations. A comprehensive and constant commitment to the Santa story is essential and a desire to make all our guests dreams come true. Only committed and responsible applicants with previous experience and training in acting, as well as a love of Christmas will be considered.

Working as an elf you will be working predominantly outside all while maintaining an extremely happy and excitable personality often for long periods of time. Lack of natural day light and minus temperatures are part of the day to day lifestyle you can expect.
