Don’t be scared to apply if you think this could be your scream job.

People with a frightfully good CV are being urged to apply if they have the right skills to give visitors to Wicksteed Park the fright of their lives.

Events at the Kettering park this autumn include Wick-Scream Park – two themed walk through experiences for those looking to be left scared and terrified.

Now the park and AtmosFEAR Scare Entertainment, Europe’s biggest independent scare entertainment production company, are looking to recruit performers for the attractions.

They will be fully trained at a Scream School in the run-up to the launch at the park next month.

Panic Station, based around the park’s train, will be a spooky theatrical experience which takes place on board a travelling train, and takes passengers into the depths of an eerie arboretum, where the phantoms linger, awaiting the unwary.

It is a family experience designed with everyone in mind, including mild elements of darkness and surprise combined with live performers.

Wicksteed Pavilion will be the base for Cirque Savage, where notorious travelling showman, Lazarus Savage, will show off his infamous troupe of freaks.

Wicksteed Park managing director Alasdair McNee said: “We are giving people the chance to have fun and get paid to scare people.

“No acting experience is required as full training will be given by one Europe’s best scare entertainment companies.”

The scream jobs will involve working evenings in October and applicants must be 18 or over.

Informal auditions will be held at the park on Saturday, where applicants will be asked to showcase their abilities to scare by performing a monologue and taking part in a short workshop.
