Enjoy having a good laugh? Up for fun? We’re looking for someone to be our wonderful mascot Claire Bear! You’ll accompany a staff member on community visits (e.g. to schools, nurseries, groups) to give young supporters a special thank you.

You will be helped into the Bear suit by a member of staff and then it’s a role of your own – have fun with it! Wave, dance, be silly!

At this time you won’t be asked to attend a visit on your own, but you will be required to make your own way there. So, please be mindful that you will have to make your own way to and from venues. We offer reasonable travel expenses.

Attributes and Requirements 

We’re looking for a energetic, fun-loving and enthusiastic person – happy, friendly and always smiling! Claire Bear doesn’t speak so it’s strictly a non-speaking role.

You’ll need to keep the head on for short periods of time, so be mindful that you should be okay with enclosed spaces. You’ll also need to have good movement as the shoes can make it more difficult to walk.


These visits will take place on an ad-hoc basis, so it’s great if you’re looking for something flexible. It will mostly be during school hours. Schools can ask us for a last-minute visit at times so it would be perfect if you have a flexible schedule too!

COVID Safety

These visits will mainly take place outside and will be socially distanced. Claire Bear’s head will provide a substantial face covering too!


On receiving your application, we’ll get in touch to discuss the role further and answer any questions you may have. Don’t worry, you’ll receive full training on the do’s and don’ts of being such a famous and fabulous Bear!
