If you’re looking for jobs at The BIG Sheep, then you’ve come to the right place, view our vacancies below! Our flock is made up of talented people from all walks of life.

Want to join our team?

Our mission is to be the attraction of choice for locals and visitors, but it’s also to be the best place to work in North Devon for our staff as well! Customer service is the core of our business, we strive to give the best day out to everyone visiting us. We have won many awards over the past few decades for our service and it’s something we’re very proud of.

As part of The BIG Sheep team you will never have a dull day and your role will be varied! You can be asked to do anything, one day you may have your face painted or be dressing up as Santa (as one of the real Santa’s helpers of course!), other days you may be driving tractors, or even learning to Morris dance! As well as working hard we’re always having fun and want to involve our visitors in that at all times. So, if you are a smiley and bubbly person with a committed work ethic, and are looking for a job where you can have your fun and get paid, then please complete a BIG Sheep application form and we’ll get back to you if we have any suitable vacancies!
