Disneyland Paris launches its biggest ever UK recruitment drive

Disneyland Paris will host major recruitment events in Cardiff and London and is planning to interview 1,000 candidates for roles in its Paris theme park.

As part of the largest recruitment drive the company has held in the UK, the recruitment days will enable potential candidates to find out more about job opportunities at Disneyland Paris and apply for permanent, short term and seasonal positions in a variety of roles including guest services, food and beverage, sales and attractions.

The London event, on the 25th and 26th October, will be held at the Hilton London Metropole from 10am each day, while the Cardiff event will be at City Hall from 10am on the 27th. These events are the start of a major European recruitment drive designed to fill 6000 job opportunities for 2011.

With more than 14,000 employees, from over 100 nations (countries or nationalities) Disneyland Paris offers opportunities in more than 500 vocations. British employees represent a significant portion of professionals working for Disneyland Paris with the third highest number of employees after France and Italy. 

Jean-Noël Thiollier, director of employment and remuneration at Disneyland Paris, said: "Few other employers can offer such a varied career path in such a unique and dynamic environment. The UK is our second largest market and therefore recruiting in the UK is incredibly important to us."

In 2009 Disneyland Paris launched an online recruitment site in order to raise awareness of the diversity and breadth of employment opportunities.

Disneyland Paris seeks quality candidates who believe in the company ethos of service excellence.  Benefits included the reimbursement of travel costs (up to a certain value) and reduced rent within staff accommodation
