Company Details

If you love theme parks and zoos then Chessington World Of Adventures Resort will be one of the best places you could hope to find work in London.

Chessington opened a zoo in South West London in the early 1930s and followed up with a theme park in the 80s. In 1987, we became a part of the Merlin Entertainment family, meaning we are now a piece of a jigsaw that has become one of the biggest entertainment groups in the world.

Chessington World of Adventures Resort has grown to offer ten distinctly-themed parks to cater for all interests, ages and thrill-seeking levels.

We regularly attract over a million people each year to visit our 1,000+ animals and use our theme park rides and attractions.

We also need to find great staff each year to fill our theme park jobs and zoo jobs. Chessington provides both seasonal work and longer term positions for the right staff.

In the theme parks you could be working in a range of hosting positions on rides, at attractions or on food & drinks. There are also lots of theme park jobs in security, first aid and cleaning at Chessington. And, of course, we also look for seasonal and permanent staff for admin roles and warehouse jobs at the theme park.

Most of the staff at Chessington Zoo are in permanent roles, but we do look for seasonal staff to fill our London jobs as zoo hosts each year too.

In addition to the jobs at our theme park and zoo, we also offer hotel jobs at our 150 room resort hotel. With bars, restaurants and other catering facilities throughout the whole site, Chessington is a major employer in the London area - and students and graduates are just perfect for many of our holiday roles and management positions.

In fact, our graduate programme lasts for 18 months and gives you the chance to work and gain experience at some of the other Merlin Entertainment sites around the UK & abroad, such as Madame Tussauds, Alton Towers, Thorpe Park, Sea Life and Legoland.

We have two programmes for graduates; one specialises in Marketing and the other is in General Management.

And, no matter whether you are in seasonal work or looking for a long term position at Chessington World of Adventures, you can be sure that you will receive full training and support from us - and various perks, rewards and benefits in addition to very competitive rates of pay.

So, if you fancy some theme park work, a zoo job or a rewarding graduate career with a fantastic employer, then take a closer look at any current Chessington World Of Adventures Resort advertised below.
