Hex Factor has been launched after the current witch, 29-year-old actress Sunny Van der Pas, handed in her notice to start her own business.
Wookey Hole director Daniel Medley said: “The job is fairly straightforward: live in the cave, be a witch, and do the things witches do.
"We have advertised nationally and hopes to attract a strong field of candidates, with the £50K salary serving as a major incentive.”
Interviews for the post, which will involve on-site assessment of witchiness, will take place on October 22 at 10.30am. Given the nature of the role, Wookey Hole has decided to run the process on an open audition basis.
Daniel said: “Ambitious witches, looking for a key career move, should turn up dressed for work and bring any essential witch accoutrements. A limited range of potion ingredients will be available.
“In one minute they have to convince a panel of three judges they are the right witch for the job using whatever props they can carry. The grand winner will chosen on the day and will be the star of our Halloween Event!”
