About the company
At Vibrant Events we are committed to providing our customers with the highest standards of children’s entertainment and customer service. We believe every child’s event should be magical, memorable and full of energy from start to finish!
We are supported by The Princes Trust and are extremely passionate about providing a 5 star service!
The services we offer include 2 hour party game entertainment, unique princess pamper parties, disco parties, personal character visits, face painting, glitter tattoos, balloon animals and more!
We are based in Maidstone, Sittingbourne and Ashford and cover most of Kent.
About the role
We urgently need a children’s entertainer to dress up as our princess for our Halloween party on 27th October from 3pm-5pm in Grove Green, Maidstone. The role after that will then consist of hosting parties as the princess and learning an interactive character play.
Please be aware the princess costume we currently have fits a size 8-12. So you must be between those sizes to apply. Please don’t be offended by this.
Full training will be given.
I will also need these characters for lots of promotional events (school fetes etc) in and around Maidstone.
Entertainers will be paid national minimum wage for training, rehearsals and character photoshoots.
For parties entertainers will be paid £20 per hour, hopefully rising to £30 in the near future.
We are not able to pay for travel but as this is a self employed role, you can claim 0.45p per mile once you fill out your tax return.
Must have a full UK driving licence, have access to own car, and be willing to travel to and from events within 30 miles of Maidstone. (Most of the time you will be picked up and dropped off though).
Must love dressing up and performing in character!
Experience within the children’s entertainment industry or a performing arts background essential.
Face painting and balloon modelling skills a big advantage but not necessary.
If you feel you are perfect for the job then please apply today! The job role is honestly so much fun and there is a lot of room for progression within the company, so you could even be managing your own team of entertainers in a few years!
To apply, please email your CV, a covering letter and an audition video to Katie at firstname.lastname@example.org
Please ensure the video is at least 2 minutes long. You can either perform a song, a dance, a children’s party dance or a scene from a pantomime. (If possible I’d prefer a scene from a pantomime, don’t worry if this is not possible). Please include an intro at the beginning explaining what you are going to perform. If you struggle to send the video via email, then please WhatsApp it to Katie on 07808 515 727.
Please be aware that we do get a lot of applicants for the job role, so if you haven’t heard from us in three weeks, I’m sorry but you have been unsuccessful.
We look forward to hearing from you!
