‘Graduation Day’ has arrived for the first five recruits to pioneer a new in-house management training programme run by Gulliver’s.
The five young people were selected last summer to train as the next generation of managers for the family-run company, which operates family theme parks at Milton Keynes, Warrington and Matlock Bath, and has plans for a fourth in the Rother Valley.
The trainees have now graduated as line managers and been assigned to specific roles at one of the three parks.
Adam Evans, from Milton Keynes, has been assigned to the role of entertainment/nerf zone manager at Gulliver’s Kingdom, Matlock Bath.
Adam, aged 22, got ‘the Gulliver’s bug, working for the company for four years during his summer holidays while studying performing arts at the University of Cumbria.
Adam said: “I’ve really enjoyed travelling around to each of the theme parks and gaining a wide knowledge of what Gulliver’s has to offer. I’m looking forward to my first season as a fully fledged manager.”
