If You Love Christmas, You'll Love These Jobs
There there are some people who love it a little bit more than the average person. You know the type; people who have their Christmas decorations up before the pumpkins have decomposed, folks who whip out the elf costumes a wee bit too enthusiastically, anyone who listens to All I Want For Christmas Is You voluntarily – they walk among us, but they are not like us.
If you’re one of those people who fully embodies the festive season, why not go a step further? If you love the jolliest time of year these festive professions could be the perfect career move for you.
Of course, we had to include the Big Man himself. Unfortunately, we’re not talking about commandeering a Reindeer-powered flying sleigh and taking a laissez-faire approach to home security, but we are talking about playing the role of Santa at a Santa’s Grotto. Festive companies like Great Grottos distribute multiple Santa Claus (Santa Cleese?) around the UK to spread some festive spirit. So, if you’re a jolly and warm-hearted person and you’re ready to spread the joy of Christmas loud and clear for all to hear (and you look good in red), then this could be the career for you.
One of Santa’s Helpers
If you’re not sold on playing the lead role, you can still be involved by playing a supporting role in the team that makes Christmas that little bit more magical. You can apply to be a part of your fun at your local grotto or, to go one step further, you can take part in the wonderful world of Elfingrove – where Glasgow’s best-loved museum is turned into a magical Christmas experience for everyone to enjoy. Plus, you get to look very stylish in the process.
A Gift Wrapper
If you’ve got the gift of being able to wrap presents without ripping or crinkling the paper and getting tangled in the ribbon, you are one of the few – a veritable X-Person. Use this talent to your advantage; many retailers require extra staff around the festive season and often they’re looking for people dedicated to prepping the gifts to go under the tree. So, if you’ve got nimble fingers and an eye for detail, consider this for your next career move.
Christmas Tree Salesperson
If you’re a skilled salesperson as well as an avid Christmas lover, this could be the job for you. Buying the Christmas tree, taking it home and decorating it to your heart’s content is a magical part of Christmas and you can help make that happen.

Employee at a Christmas Themed Hotel
Calling all hospitality experts! Working in the hotel industry is a popular career choice, but why not make it even more exciting by working somewhere that feels especially Christmassy? With multiple hotels around Scotland perfect for that Christmas getaway, there’s lots of opportunities to make guests’ holiday retreats even more special.
A bit of an odd one, but great for animal lovers! The Cairngorm Reindeer Herd provide tours of reindeer around the country for public and promotional events, helping to bring festive joy everywhere they go. They may not be airborne and have red noses, but this type of job is perfect for all those Christmas-loving animal handlers!
As you can see, there is an array of festive professions perfect for those self-confessed Christmas lovers. However, if you’re perhaps looking for a new job opportunity that isn’t necessarily Christmas-centric, get in touch with us.
