Are you looking for the most fun job in Victoria? Sun, smiles and a friendly atmosphere, in a magical oasis where anything can happen? If so, look no further! Gumbuya World staff get to have it all.

We’re now recruiting for our upcoming 2018/2019 summer season. So if you’re a customer service and tourism superstar, join the Gumbuya family and make this a summer to remember.


So what positions do we have available?

We’re on the hunt for new team members in the following roles:

  • Hospitality Attendants
  • Lifeguards
  • Ride Operators
  • Guest Service and Retail Attendants
  • Cleaners

All roles are offered on a casual basis, given the seasonality and trading days of our business (but don’t worry, there is work a-plenty! It’s our peak season, after all…). Ongoing work will be offered to those who excel over the summer.


Why would you want to work here?

The question should be why wouldn’t you want to work here! Enjoy:

  • Working outdoors
  • Spending your day in the colourful, fun-packed environment of a theme park
  • Making friends with a warm & supportive team
  • Lots of hours up for grabs
  • Potential for ongoing work
  • And even the odd free tickets to Gumbuya World!


What qualifications do you need?

Working in a theme park is heaps of fun, but we do take it seriously when it comes to the safety of our guests. To ensure their well-being and satisfaction, we require staff of different areas to have certain certificates and qualifications.

  • All staff require: current Working with Children Check (if 18 or over)
  • Hospitality Attendants require: a Food Handling certificate and RSA (if 18 or over)
  • Lifeguards require: Provide first aid certificate, Provide CPR certificate, Pool Lifeguard certificate
  • Ride Operators require: Provide first aid certificate, Provide CPR certificate (Ride operators must be 18 years old or over)

Please note that whilst the above certifications are mandatory, some of these CAN be provided by Gumbuya World, to the right applicants. Don’t have a Pool Lifeguard Certificate but want to work in our water park? Apply still, and we can go from there. We would never let go of a superstar that we see potential in due to a limit of their initial certifications.


What amazing attributes do you need?

Apart from that official stuff, you also need the following:

  • A positive, can-do attitude
  • Readiness to use your initiative
  • A great work ethic
  • A happy demeanour and smiling face that our guests are able to relate to
  • To be caring and go the extra mile for our guests


Sound like you? Great! We’d love to hear from you.

  • What department/s do you wish to apply for?
