Gulliver’s seeking applicants for 2019 trainee management scheme

UK theme park operator Gulliver’s is on the lookout for applicants for its in-house management training programme, seeking fresh new talent to lead the company in the future.

Now entering its fifth year, the programme has a special element to it in 2019 for trainees as they will become instrumental in the launch of a new theme park – Gulliver’s Valley Resort in South Yorkshire.

During the scheme, trainees will undertake placements at Gulliver’s resorts in Matlock, Bath, Warrington and Milton Keynes and gain key skills in leadership, technical understanding and product knowledge as well as getting practical experience.

Once trainees have completed the year-long Trainee Management Programme they will take on a role in early 2020 at Gulliver’s Valley Resort as the company makes final preparations to launch its grand opening.

"The Trainee Management Programme is a truly unique experience," said Dean Kimberley, director of Guest Services at Gulliver’s.

"There isn’t another course in the country like it and we are very proud to be paving the way in theme park management training programmes. The trainees make us proud year-on-year and their efforts shine through, which is why they’re offered jobs within the company upon completion – those who complete the course, after seeing and being involved with the nitty-gritty side of stuff as well, are the people we want joining the Gulliver’s family."
