Theme park Walibi, in Wavre in Walloon-Brabant province, has launched a recruitment drive for staff for its 2022 season. At least 600 applicants are sought.
The season starts on 2 April, and applications have to be in before the end of February. The range of candidates being sought for jobs is broad: lifeguards, receptionists, sales personnel, as well as kitchen and maintenance staff.
Applicants should prepare a short presentation video, made using a smartphone or webcam, and submitted to a website designed to explain what the park is looking for. The jobs on offer range from cleaners to character actors, and seemingly everything in between.
Until the end of February applications are invited – click on the link on the website page (link above).
Once the video has been uploaded and saved, it will be viewed.
Once the first screening has been carried out, you will be invited to participate in a job day (date scheduled for the end of January) in order for you to meet our teams and ask all your questions. You will then be invited to our recruiting sessions where you will take an individual interview, a short scenario and a computer personality test.
During the month of March: If the interview is conclusive for you and for us, you will have the chance to receive a free one-week certification course on hospitality jobs in tourism and leisure. At the end of this training, you will be able to sign your contract.
“During our recruitment process, we attach particular importance to cheerful profiles who are hospitable, caring and who comply with the procedures and regulations related to the position. Experience in the tourism sector or in another amusement park is not a requirement, as every seasonal worker receives training,” said Antoine Stasse, personnel director of Walibi Belgium.
Walibi in Wavre sees some 1.4 million visitors a year, and employs a total of 1,300 people, 110 of them in permanent jobs, the rest holiday hires.
