Nottingham City Council is embarking on a search for somebody who has the ‘Dino-Factor’.
The hunt is underway to find an actor/puppeteer who will be paid to operate a 3m high, animatronic dinosaur which will shortly be roaming the city streets. The aim is to promote the World Exclusive Dinosaurs of China exhibition coming to Wollaton Hall and Nottingham Lakeside Arts this summer.
There will even be a Simon Cowell lookalike on hand to keep those auditioning on their toes!
The dinosaur operator will need to be flexible on hours, and used to working with the public and large crowds of people. They will need to be physically fit as they will be required to work in the full sized dinosaur costume for extended periods as well as undertaking Heritage Assistant duties with Nottingham City Museums and Galleries.
At the auditions, candidates will be asked to walk, talk and roar like a dinosaur!
Online registration is essential to audition and the deadline to register is midnight on Sunday 19 March.
For details about the auditions, to register and to view the job description please visit the Dinosaurs of China website.
