These jobs are in a tropical paradise

The Isles of Scilly are recruiting

Jobs including dog warden and pub landlord come with a chance to live on a subtropical paradise, and there are seasonal job vacancies for people who want to spend the summer living and working on these beautiful British tropical islands.

There are plenty of seasonal job opportunities on the Tresco estate for the summer in 2019. Travel costs and accommodation would be paid for if you want to take on a role in catering, customer service or maintenance. You’ll also get a 20% employees’ discount in the restaurants and shops, be able to use kayaks to explore the seas around the islands and can invite friends and family to come and visit with preferential rates at local holiday accommodation. They could be a fantastic way to experience life in a tropical paradise.

Permanent job opportunities don’t come along so often, but right now there are three ways you could make tropical Tresco your new home. You could be operating boats, running your own pub or looking after local dogs.

You could become the new tenants of the Bishop and Wolf Inn in Hugh Town, which is closed at the moment and awaiting new landlords. You’ll be able to embrace island life and be part of a community with thriving seasonal trade. You’ll need a strong background in catering and enjoy being host to visitors and locals alike. The Inn has been recently refurbished, including a children’s soft play area, and outside there is a garden and staff accommodation.

Or how about becoming a permanent dog warden for the council of the Isles of Scilly? Working in the environmental health team, this job includes ensuring that dog owners follow dog control legislation, and you’ll be patrolling public areas.

Other jobs include being a lifeguard for Active Scilly or being a maintenance person for Tresco Abbey. The Tresco Estate is also recruiting for an Island Engineer and Island Engineering Manager. They’re looking for qualified mechanical or agricultural engineers to work on projects and installations across the island, including servicing fleet of vehicles, welding and working in the machine shop.

With such variety on offer, it seems like there’s no such thing as a typical day at work when you’re living and working on the Scillys. These subtropical islands offer job opportunities to anyone who loves the buzz of interacting with visitors and locals, with plenty of lush landscapes and beautiful beaches available outside working hours.
