The unusual job description includes being friendly, chatty, 'twinkly-eyed' and loving the festive season.

Executive chairman Ed Webb said:

"White hair, a beard and a large belly are not essential but a hearty laugh and jolly personality will make all the difference!

"Children and families love Christmas at Webbs and meeting Santa is the icing on the cake for most youngsters. It’s a magical time and our Santa needs to match the figure of their dreams and make sure they have a memorable and enchanting time. A full Santa outfit will of course be provided."

Santa and his elves in his grotto will be at Webbs garden centre from November in the run up to Christmas. 

Applications for the festive positions of Santa and elves are needed by the end of July.

Training and costumes will be provided. Full and part time hours are available.
