The real-life Hogwarts Express is hiring a Harry Potter expert to educate tourists at Hogsmeade Station

The real-life Hogwarts Express wants to hire a Potter expert to work with tourists at Goathland Station, which was featured in the film as Hogsmeade Station.

The North Yorkshire Moors Historical Railway Trust needs super-fans to dedicate their time to answering the questions of fans who visit the station on a daily basis.

A magical-sounding job description states that the role will “mainly require the successful candidate to be available on a weekdays to accommodate for school visits.”

You will also lead “small to medium-sized groups of Muggles and Wizarding enthusiasts on tours around Goathland station, delivering knowledge on the history of the railway and the station’s association with the Harry Potter franchise.”

The candidate will also: “Work with the Education Officer to create an engaging Wizarding itinerary with the aim of group visits and ensuring that they have an enjoyable visit that fulfils any required learning objectives.”

Sadly, the position isn’t paid as it's on a volunteer basis, which might well put some people off.

But if you’re a Potter know-it-all with some time on your hands, it might be worth applying for the job. You have until June 30 to to do so.

Goathland is a popular place for tourists who want to take selfies, often in Harry Potter costumes.

The historic steam train line closed in 1965 but was reopened in 1973 as a tourist attraction.

It’s now one of the busiest heritage steam train lined in the world, carrying 355,000 people in 2010. It currently runs from Whitby to Pickering.

Sun Online Travel previously revealed that the new Harry Potter tour, Behind The Seams, lets fans wear an original Hogwarts robe and even choose their house colours.

Scientists have also developed a Harry Potter-like cloak which makes objects vanish.
