Hogwarts seeks to recruit wizarding staff


Something for the weekend: Wannabe wizards will be rubbing their hands together at the latest recruitment drive from Warner Brother Studio Tour London, as the movie studio hunts down candidates to work in the hallowed halls of magicking school Hogwarts.

Those looking to work with JK Rowlings’ fictional Harry Potter series will attend a recruitment assessment day on Friday 22 September 2017, with spellbinding performances earning successful candidates the chance to work at the studio’s The Making of Harry Potter tour.

Job-seeking muggles can apply for roles as interactors, sales associates or warehouse associates, which provides them with the opportunity to explore the famed school of witchcraft and wizardry for themselves.
