Our modern retail outlets are an outstanding place to get you started in one of the UK’s biggest industries. Retail is all about customer service – helping our guests, supplying them with what they need, and ensuring they have a seamless and positive experience. Whether it’s working in our shops, our bars, or assisting our Housekeeping team, we give you the opportunity to thrive and develop the skills required to be a success in retail.

We will help you build on your customer focus and your ability to manage yourself, and our training programme will ensure you progress and develop your all round skills. From serving guests and keeping records of stock, to ensuring takings balance and maintaining high levels of customer service with the guests you interact with; you’ll flourish in our fun, friendly and supportive work environment. As a Retail Assistant you’ll be in the thick of the action in the buzz of the bars and the frenzy of the shops.

ll of our centres have a gift and tuck shop where guests can buy all manner of PGL related goodies as well as refreshments, souvenirs and confectionery. Some of our larger centres also have onsite bars which are open in the evening for PGL’s adult guests and staff – these are also staffed by our Retail Assistants.

At some of our smaller centres this role is combined with that of housekeeping or General Assistant so you will spend your time between the roles. The gift and tuck shops are open on a daily basis and are where you will predominantly be based. You may have the opportunity, in your spare time, to participate in evening entertainments/activities with PGL guests and build up your skills, competencies and confidence.


A background in retail, bar or customer service is desirable, although not always necessary as full training will be provided.

If you have not yet gained any qualifications or have no experience working with children this might be the ideal role for you; many of our current Activity staff started in a Retail role. We welcome applications from people who can demonstrate the following:
  • Enthusiasm.
  • The ability to thrive and enjoy working as part of a fast-paced team.
  • A willingness to learn.
  • Excellent customer service skills.
