Become an Otter Elf this year and help spread the Christmas cheer. We are holding auditions to find the merriest elves with a love of all things Christmas and entertaining children. Full training, plus many more benefits provided when you join our famous magical Grotto team. During November and December we run the renowned Grotto at Ottery St Mary, offering fun activities for children in an exciting Christmassy experience.


We are looking for Senior Elves who will lead activities enthusiastically and sing fun songs with the children, ensuring they have the best possible  experience.

We also require a team of Elves to welcome children and their grown-ups into the Grotto, assist with activities and ensure that everyone has a thoroughly magical visit.

Minimum age for these roles – 15 years of age

If your application is successful we will write to you or email you to invite you to audition for the part as an elf. This is being held on Wednesday 23rd October at 6pm and it is important that you are able to attend this.


These are fixed term positions with various part time shifts from mid-November to Christmas Eve, with weekday and weekend shifts available.
