If you’re looking for the perfect resume booster to help you get into Hogwarts, this is it. The North Yorkshire Moors Historical Railway Trust in England is looking for a few Harry Potter experts to volunteer aboard the “Hogwarts Express” and educate visitors about the train’s importance and connection to the books and films. For example, Goathland Station, one of the stops along the railway, was featured in the films as “Hogsmeade Station,” so if you know where to sample the best butterbeer in town and are ready to tell tourists all about it, you’re a good fit.

According to the job description, successful candidates must be available on weekdays to accommodate for school visits and be prepared to lead “small to medium-sized groups of Muggles and Wizarding enthusiasts on tours around Goathland station, delivering knowledge on the history of the railway and the station’s association with the Harry Potter franchise”. You will also get a chance to flex your creative muscles by working with the education officer to create an “engaging Wizarding itinerary”.

The volunteer should be comfortable becoming the public face of the station’s association with the Harry Potter franchise, participating in media and publicity activities “with the support of the Marketing department and Ministry of Magic.”

If you’re a serious Potterhead with experience public speaking and working with children, send an email to by June 30th to apply.
