What wizarding world jobs are there?
After leaving school a lot of students go on to work for the wizarding government, the Ministry of Magic. From catching Dark wizards to making sure that the magical world is kept hidden from Muggles, there are lots of different departments for them to choose from. They might even rise all the way through the ranks and become the Minister for Magic!
For those who enjoyed all the learning they did at Hogwarts, they might decide to become a teacher. They could be a Charms Professor like Professor Flitwick. Or they might fancy trying the role of Transfiguration teacher like Professor McGonagall. If they are particularly green-fingered, they might enjoy teaching Herbology like Professor Sprout.
A career involving magical creatures is also an option. Ron’s brother Charlie was a huge fan of dragons and after leaving school went to work with them in Romania. In fact, Hagrid’s dragon, Norbert the Norwegian Ridgeback, was sent to Charlie to be taken care of before being released into the wild.
Another job in the wizarding world is a wandmaker, like Ollivander. After all, what would a witch or wizard be without one? If you are going to perform magic, you have to have a wand! A wandmaker could open their very own shop full of beautifully made wands of all different woods, sizes and cores that are just waiting to pick their witch or wizard.
Speaking of shops, Diagon Alley is packed full of them, selling all kinds of weird and wonderful things – and they all need people to work in them. There’s Madam Malkin’s shop which has all the robes you could ever need. Then there is Eeylops Owl Emporium where Hagrid purchased Hedwig for Harry. There’s also Flourish and Blotts which has all sorts of interesting books. For those who like the be surrounded by the hustle and bustle of this magical shopping street, this is an excellent place to work.
For the sporty types, there is the option of being a professional Quidditch player. The wizarding world has many different teams from the Chudley Cannons to the Tutshill Tornadoes. For witches and wizards who are talented enough, this is always an option.
Overall, there are lots of different jobs that magical folk can do in the wizarding world and there’s something to suit everybody – no matter their skills or interests.
