I want to apply for a job at Alton Towers for a season and maybe even longer if they like me
but i'm not sure what to pick. My family said that i should try caricature artist because i really enjoy art and they say my drawings are rather good but i am not really sure if i should or not.
The other job i want to apply for is ride host so i was wondering if any one on here has actually been a caricature artist and can tell me what it is like working in that role. I would also like to know what main qualifications you would need to be ride host? I already know what you would need for a caricature artist.
I worked as a ride host for the 2015 season so may be able to help
Firstly I do know that caricature artists are hired by a separate contractor like how HB leisure and Picsolve are but I'm not sure what. I also understand that they don't hire many. So you'll really have to do your research on that one.
As for working as a ride host, they don't really want any qualifications, but a good work ethic and transferable skills from a previous job helps. It is a fun job, but they're looking for people who are good with customers, who can follow some rigid procedures and who are prepared to work in all weather conditions. The first one is very important. You can be the biggest enthusiast in the world but it'll get you nowhere if you don't care about your guests.
