The most important element of our service is finding amazing Santas and Elves to bring our Grottos to life. We recruit 400 - 500 staff each year and many tell us it is most rewarding job role they have ever had.
Great Grottos have been managing Grottos in shopping centres and garden centres across the UK since 1998. Our service includes the recruitment, DBS checking, contracting, training and management of Christmas Grotto staff.
In addition we supply costumes, ready-wrapped Christmas toys, souvenir photography and online booking. For details on our service | Christmas Grotto Management
