New General Manager to steer Wet’n’Wild Sydney’s second season

New General Manager to steer Wet’n’Wild Sydney’s second season
August 27, 2014

With Wet'n'Wild Sydney set to open for its second season on 20th September, a new General Manager, Dianne Rigg, will be at the helm of the waterpark’s team.

Longtime Village Roadshow Theme Parks (VRTP) executive Rigg, whose most recent role was as General Manager of Warner Bros. Movie World and Wet’n’ Wild Gold Coast, took on the role in last month, replacing the attraction’s inaugural General Manager, Chris Warhurst, who has moved to manage VRTP’s overseas development projects.

With Wet’n’Wild Sydney set to reopen for the 2014/2015 season in advance of the September/October school holidays, Rigg has been overseeing staff recruitment for the attraction.

With 600 positions to fill for lifeguards, aquatic attendants, tech services, water quality and grounds maintenance, cleaning, staff services as well as food and beverage, retail and guest service workers, Wet'n'Wild Sydney saw over 4,000 people apply for the jobs.

Commenting on the interest, Rigg told the Blacktown Advocate “there was an extremely positive number of responses to our recruitment advertisements.

“Every potential team member has to share our absolute commitment to exceptional standards of safety, service and fun to be considered for a role.”
