Cineworld launches zombie employment scheme in Speke

Cineworld, the UK’s leading cinema chain, has today announced the introduction of a zombie employment scheme across 12 of its cinemas in the UK and Ireland. Launching this month, the scheme has been created by Cineworld in a bid to engage the zombie community.

Following a ghouling selection process, trial shifts will take place on the evening of 18th October, coinciding with one of the most anticipated film releases this month, Zombieland: Double Tap, starring Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg, Emma Stone and Abigail Breslin.

During the trial shifts, each zombie will be tasked with a multitude of jobs, from serving customers drinks and snacks at concession stands to checking tickets and fulfilling cleaning duties.

A Cineworld Spookesperson said:

“We are delighted to be the first business in the UK and Ireland to trial the employment of zombies! Cineworld offers fantastic career prospects and is a brilliant company to work for. We are proud to employ a diverse and inclusive workforce who create such an amazing cinemagoing experience.”

Based on the success of this trial, Cineworld is considering a nationwide roll-out of the scheme. Customer satisfaction is at the heart of the cinema chain’s day-to-day operations, therefore cinemagoers are encouraged to visit one of the trial sites and share their experience on social media using #CineworldZombieScheme.
