Search for Santa!

It may be the start of summer, but we’re thinking ahead to Christmas as we launch a search for Santa!

We’re looking to recruit the star of our busy castle grotto, which attracts thousands of excited young visitors each year. 

Interested applicants need to be able to spread lots of festive cheer as they work alongside a team of elves to deliver a magical experience for children and their families.

Interested Santas – with or without beards – should apply with a CV via email to or by post to Marketing Department, Dudley Zoo and Castle, Castle Hill, Dudley DY1 4QF.

The closing date for applications is Friday, September 1.
