Walt Disney World seeks cultural representative for year-long Florida placement

Walt Disney World

Something for the weekend: Walt Disney World in Florida, USA is seeking to hire a cultural representative to live and work in its Epcot resort for a paid, 12-month placement that includes accommodation and a 30-day travel period.

Being typically British is a great advantage for Walt Disney World’s latest job posting, as the kid-centric theme park organisation is advertising for cultural representatives to work in either the food and beverage, merchandise or kidcot zones in the United Kingdom Pavilion at Walt Disney World’s Epcot resort, within its World Showcase.

The chosen candidate will be paid $10 (£7.56) an hour for a minimum of 32 hours a week, although food and beverage-based roles that earn tips will receive a lower hourly wage. The cultural representative will also receive an additional 30-day travel period once they have completed their 12-month placement.

If working at the home of all things Disney is still not enough excitement, how about living there? The cultural representative will get to live in one of four Disney International Housing complexes, where they will share an apartment with up to two fellow employees. The housing costs are deducted from employees’ weekly pay.

The complexes are nearby to the Disney parks to allow ample time for exploring the rides in employees’ downtime, but they also feature amenities such as fitness centres, transportation systems, swimming pools and computer labs. On-site residents can also participate in cast member events and scheduled activities, if they wish, for a one-time fee of $375 (£283.46).

To be eligible for this magical opportunity, candidates must be aged over 18, have a valid UK passport, be available for the 12-month period, speak fluent English and have no visible tattoos. Previous experience would also be desirable.

If working alongside Micky and Minnie Mouse sounds right up your yellow brick road, then Walt Disney World is accepting applications until Wednesday 1 August 2018, with final interview dates taking pace between 6 and 9 November 2018.

Here at Employee Benefits, we think this opportunity is a bare necessity, and we would love Walt Disney World to invite us to be its guest for this exciting placement.
