Are you full of cheeky charm and looking for your next adventure? Then come and join our Shrek-ceptional team and get ready for some real feel good fun!

We are looking for Costume Character Actors to be part of our team helping to bring DreamWorks characters to life, and you’ll be the star of the show as we’re looking for people to play Shrek himself!

This exciting role will involve world class visitor interaction, so improvisational skills are a must! You will also be required to act as a buddy for our onsite characters, as well as displaying a great sense of humour at the meet and greet points. 

This is a 6 month contract offering a minimum of 25 hours per week. Full availability will be needed as our attractions are open daily, therefore shifts include weekends, bank holidays and peak holiday seasons. For this reason, we advise that you aren’t involved in any other performing contracts whilst working for us.

To be considered, please attach your CV and an up to date head shot - including your height clearly detailed on your CV.


About you

We’d love to hear from you if you have previous experience in costume work, puppetry, or mime, particularly within an entertainments or performance setting.

You'll need plenty of stamina, plus a real flair for improvisation as interacting with our diverse range of guests is a big part of the role. You will also need a flexible approach to the role you play and the hours you work, and naturally bring a positive, upbeat and team spirited personality. 

We are a very close-knit team here at Shrek’s Adventure! London and so we need team players that are happy to help others as well as working independently.

  D ue to the limits of the character costumes, your height must be within the following height range: 6’1" to 6'4" 

Why join us?

We pay an hourly rate of £10.05 . This role also comes with 25% discount in our retail shops and restaurants, 40% off LEGO and much more!
