Even if you're well past wizarding school age, you still have a chance to see the Hogwarts Express in person. As Travel + Leisure reports, one of the real-life railways featured in the Harry Potter films is seeking a Harry Potter expert to tell guests about the train's magical background.
Multiple locations were used to film the Hogwarts Express scenes in the Harry Potter franchise, including Goathland Station on the North Yorkshire Moors Railway (NYMR) in England. The stop on the historical steam train's route can be spotted in the films when the gang arrives at Hogsmeade. Now the railway is seeking a "Wizarding Prefect" to educate visitors interested in the location's connection to Harry Potter.
The volunteer will be responsible for leading tour groups around Goathland Station and working with the education team to come up with a wizarding-themed itinerary and activities. According to the posting, they must have "strong knowledge regarding wizards and witches," excellent public speaking skills, and experience working with school-aged children. They must be available to work on weekdays so they can be present for field trips.
If you think you're qualified, send your resume to firstname.lastname@example.org by June 30. And if that doesn't work out, look out for job opportunities at one of the many other Harry Potter locations in the muggle realm.
