Have you got the Axe-factor?

Great personalities required 🤟

I recently caught up with Jools (Co-Founder) on what it takes to be a Whistle Punks instructor and learned that a traditional sit-down interview isn’t enough to find the star recruits.

He said: “I first taught myself how to throw axes from watching YouTube videos, so I know that we can teach almost anyone how to do that part! What we can’t teach is the emotional intelligence and engaging energy that gives our customers an unforgettable experience.”

Since 2016 we've helped customers throw an estimated 10 million axes

That’s why we hold Axe Factor events when opening new venues – applicants will have 10 minutes to teach something to a small group. It can be anything at all. We’ve seen meringue-making, magic tricks (which didn’t work, but still scored a job), entertaining Eurovision facts, knot tying, fire eating and more. The subject doesn’t really matter, and you don’t have to be a super-extra-extrovert, you just have to care about people and inspire through positivity.

If you think you’ve got what it takes to be a Whistle Punk, take a look at our current vacancies here.
