That's according to new data from jobs site Indeed.com.

In the year to date, the number of seasonal job postings is up 11% compared to 2017.

While 4% of the jobs advertised require a worker to dress up as Santa, Mrs Claus - or an elf.

Seasonal roles are predominantly customer-facing sales jobs in the retail sector (73%).

Other big roles relate to stocking, merchandising, driving and warehouse work.

While the hospitality sector - such as restaurant, bar and catering roles - accounts for 2%.

The analysis included jobs that had at least one of 'christmas', 'xmas', 'seasonal', 'elf', 'holiday','santa', 'claus' in the job title.
