Cork is on the look-out for bearded men to be the perfect Santa this Christmas

Melissa Carton

Do you know someone perfect for this?

I know what you’re thinking, can we really be talking about Santa and Christmas already. Only yesterday I was in the shopping centre and surprised to see that wrapping paper and Christmas decorations are already hitting shelves.

While it seems like Easter was only yesterday Christmas really is only a few weeks away which means so is someone else, Santa.

Yes, stores and markets are already hiring their Santas and making sure that children all across the country get a chance to meet jolly old Saint Nick.

A casting company recently posted searching for bearded men to don the big red suit this year;

“We are looking for Santa’s, based in Cork with their own real beard! Must have good availability for multiple shifts across various dates in November and December.”

All men wishing to apply must be over the age of 18 and have a real beard.

The Santas will be required in various locations in Mahon, Cork.

Know someone ideal for the jobs?

Those wishing to apply don’t need to send their CVs to the North Pole instead all they have to do to apply or to find out more information is to visit Movie Extras Ireland.
