Birthday Party Leaders (Weekend work)

ClapHandies (claphandies.com) has been running baby and toddler PlayLabs for the past 10 years in over 25 venues across Dublin. We have built a reputation of being a quality and trustworthy brand and in February 2017 we will be expanding into the birthday party business.

Initially, we will have two permanent weekend venues in Dundrum Town Centre and Malahide Castle, while also offering parties in local venues such as community centres and in children’s homes.

We are very excited about this new venture and are now looking for enthusiastic team members to join us. We are looking for candidates to be available to start from February to March; hourly rate will range €10 to €15 per hour depending on role. Extensive training will be provided.

Are you available to work Saturdays and/or Sundays from February until the end of June initially and from September onwards? If your answer is yes then we would love to see you at our interviews on Saturday 28th January in Dundrum Town Centre.

Our team members must:

  • Love spending time with young children (4 to 11 yr olds) and enjoy hanging out with this age group
  • Be patient, caring and kind - working with children can be tough work but can be very rewarding
  • Be reliable, professional and have a strong customer service ethos - our customers (both the children and their parents) are the centre of our world, we want them to have the best day of their lives!
  • Be available to work most Saturdays and/or Sundays.

Candidates who have own transport may be offered home party work, but otherwise own car is not a requirement.

We appreciate that some applicants may have exams during our party season so we can offer schedule flexibility for the right candidates!
