Applications are now open for a dream job at one of Scotland’s largest indoor shopping malls which includes flexible hours, tasty treats and compulsory playtime!

The Centre, Livingston is searching for 12 creative, enthusiastic families to appoint as its ‘Family of Fun’ who will be responsible for testing out The Centre’s activities. The winning candidates will enjoy a fun-packed day out each where they shop, eat and play, courtesy of The Centre.

They will be among the first to experience any exciting new child-friendly additions to The Centre, try out exhilarating Aerial Adventures activities, including HiRide and HiClimb, and help to ensure that the events in the shopping centre are guaranteed to delight even the youngest of shoppers.

They will enjoy a host of ‘money can’t buy’ experiences, including reviewing the family friendly restaurants and leisure activities for The Centre’s magazine and testing the hottest new toys.

Their first shop, eat and play day out will include an action-packed visit to Aerial Adventures, reaching new heights on HiRide, having fun at soft play and also enjoying a spot of lunch. They will have the chance to indulge in a bit of shopping with a £150 Gift Card, which can be used in 80 shops in The Centre and all restaurants.

Working hours will be during school holidays as well as an occasional weekend in term time.

Children can apply by sending in a letter of no more than 250 words, or a video lasting 30 seconds or less, which explains why they’d be perfect for the role.

Songs, poetry and collages will also be accepted, so it’s a real chance for them to let their creativity and personality shine through!

Applications can be handed in to the customer service desk by Monday, March 25, or emailed to enquiries@thecentrelivingston.com.

Ashley Bisland, Deputy Centre Director at The Centre, said: “Our Family of Fun or group of friends will give us a real child’s eye view of The Centre and ensure that we continue to offer enjoyable and exciting days out for our youngest visitors.

“We can’t wait to see the applications as we already know that our young shoppers are full of fun! We’re waiting for some extra special candidates to catch our eye – ones who are enthusiastic and bursting with imagination!”
