Work at the Museum

Coventry Transport Museum is part of the Culture Coventry charitable trust - occasionally we need to recruit new staff to the team, and we look for self-motivated and forward-thinking people.

Even if you are based behind the scenes, you need to be comfortable working with or around visitors in an environment where creating the right atmosphere is everything. Everyone in the team plays an active part in delivering our fantastic attraction to visitors.

All of our vacancies can be found listed here when they arise, but if you can’t wait to get involved why not check out our Volunteering Programme.

People from Black, Asian and Ethnically Diverse backgrounds, disabled, deaf and neurodivergent people are underrepresented in our workforce, so we particularly encourage applications from candidates in these groups.


Christmas Elves (Casual)

Closing Date: 22nd October 2023

CVLife  are looking for individuals to be part of a team of Christmas Elves, helping Santa within a Christmas scene setting as part of our iconic vintage Sleigh Ride Experience at  the Coventry Transport Museum. We are seeking individuals who love the festive season and can bring joy and enthusiasm to our visitors. You will have  a passion for the magic of Christmas and understand the importance of the role of Santa and his Elves for children, demonstrating the required behaviours with confidence and enthusiasm.

Becoming one of Santa’s Elves is a truly magical task. It’s not just about helping children feel at ease with the wonderful experience of seeing Santa, it’s about keeping the spirit of Christmas alive which means fantastic customer service and always looking for an opportunity to make people smile. Our Elves play a key role in ensuring our visitors have the best Christmas experience. You will be responsible for helping spread the Christmas spirit through creating memorable visits for children and their parents, meeting and greeting families, introducing children to Santa, taking photos, ensuring they receive their gift and interacting with children whilst they wait for their Sleigh Ride Experience.  Ultimately you will help ensure that Santa’s Workshop is organised and runs smoothly within the magical Christmas setting.

We are looking for candidates who are a team player with the ability to use their initiative and improvise to ensure everything runs smoothly for our visitors, have excellent communication skills with the ability to build rapport with both children and adults. You will be enthusiastic with a natural cheerful disposition helping to create a memorable experience.

There are morning, afternoon and evening shifts from 24th Nov-23rd Dec. Predominantly Fri, Sat and Sun shifts.

 If you can add a sprinkle of magic to our Christmas experience apply today and Join Our Team!
