We are looking for part-time ESCAPE ROOM Games Masters for our site in Colchester, next door to Rollerworld.

The role will consist of looking after our potential escapees from the minute they enter until the minute they depart. It is a varied role with a number of responsibilities

  • Must be aged 18 or over with truckloads of energy

  • A real, warm, friendly welcome including a pregame group briefing.

What are we looking for?

Customer service skills – You need to be a confident individual who is comfortable speaking in front of groups of up to 18 and holding their attention.


Initiative - You don’t need a great knowledge of puzzles and escape rooms, what you do need though is the ability to think on your feet. Things don’t always go to plan and sometimes you need to come up with solutions quickly.


Attention to detail – This will help you track the progress of the games in play accurately. It is particularly important when setting the rooms up for the next game and ensuring there are no mistakes.


Flexibility – We are potentially open from 10am to midnight 7 days a week depending on our escapees’ requests, however this role is predominantly for weekday evenings and weekends.


Computer skills – Nothing too complicated but you need to be comfortable using Excel, the booking system, email and social media.
