Job title: Games Master
Location: Can You Escape? Edinburgh, 5 Holyrood Road
Wage: £8.35 per hour
Contract: Temporary


We are looking to recruit a new Games Masters at our award-winning escape game venue in Edinburgh. You will be responsible for greeting teams when they arrive at HQ, delivering a ‘house rules’ briefing and a game briefing (in character). Once the teams start their mission, you will need to guide them through the 60 minutes, offering clues and hints at appropriate times through a walkie-talkie system.

There will be additional duties required of you, such as responding to booking enquiries, flyering, and some general cleaning. Some basic DIY and decorating skills would also be advantageous.


Can You Escape is all about immersing the customers in the experience of being a secret agent for the hour that they’re with us, so it is vital that we choose the right individual to join our team. This role will require more than just turning up to do the bare minimum to get through a shift. What we need is a confident, outgoing individual who won’t be embarrassed when giving briefings in character. We need someone who can entertain our customers and create an experience they will never forget. Therefore having experience working with the general public in a customer service capacity (particularly with groups such as young children’s parties, hen/stag parties, corporate team building and foreign tourists) is highly desirable.

The position would be ideal for someone who is flexible in terms of when they can work, as shifts can change / become available at short notice. You must be available at weekends and across August.


Simply send an email to with your CV and a covering letter, which must include your answers to the following (any applications without a covering letter will not be considered):

- Your background and interests
- Your suitability for the role
- The reasons you want to be part of the Can You Escape? team
- The Agent name you would choose and why
- What your current employment status is
- Your availability and other commitments
