With the countdown to Christmas in sight, Dobbies Garden Centre, in Bury St Edmunds, is gearing up for a magical festive season and is searching for Santas and Elves to join its team, with a full training programme available for applicants. 

With a programme of seasonal events the garden centre retailer is searching for helpers to spread joy across the town this year. From welcoming children to Santa’s Breakfast, Santa and his Elves will make sure Christmas is extra special for everyone who visits.

Sarah Murray, partnership and events manager at Debbie’s, said: “We are looking for professional and friendly Santas and Elves to create a magical experience for visitors this year in our Bury St Edmunds store. There will be a host of interactive elements for all ages to enjoy and we would love to find people who can bring these to life, especially those with a theatrical background or capabilities.”

There will be a full training programme provided for those successful via Dobbies’ Santa School, its online learning platform.

After completing the course, the new team members will have further training in the store with walk-rounds, store procedures and the chance to familiarise themselves with the experiences.
