    --We have recently filled our vacant position for July-September. We will update our profile when a position becomes available.

    =======================

    **Please be aware we receive a HIGH level of interest for positions with us, and only have 1-2 helpers at any time.**

    • Do not apply if you do not have the right to work in the UK; this is a short-term work position paid in line with minimum wage. We do not offer sponsorship for these positions.

    • Positions are for a minimum of two months and often do not begin/ end with the calendar month (it depends on the plans of our existing workawayers). Take a look at our availability calendar and contact us according to our availability; we only open positions up 1-2 months in advance, so it's a good idea to keep checking in. We love our Workawayers and need them all times of the year!

    • We only accept applications from individuals, and cannot take couples or friends travelling together.

    • We do not have time to reply to messages that are not specific to our listing/location. Do not use ChatGPT to compose your application.

    • This is a live-in JOB application; if you're interested in joining us, please tell us a little bit about yourself and why you think you'd be a good addition to our team :) It is important that your application is thorough and shows you have read through our profile.

    Welcome to our hostel on the Isle of Skye! Providing comfort as well as a sharp design, we are a luxurious and friendly hostel with private pods on the hill behind us. There are gorgeous views of Uig bay and the sea through large windows which surround the main living and dining areas of the bunkhouse, and a large wood burning stove which gives a warm and inviting atmosphere.

    Our bunk beds have been custom made to provide wonderful sleeping areas complete with individual lights. There are 34 beds divided into 6 dorms, and we have 8 en-suite pods up on the hill behind the bunkhouse.

    This is your chance to experience life on the beautiful Isle of Skye!

    We are looking for someone who has fantastic cleaning skills and an eye for detail, as well as being friendly and welcoming to guests. We are just a small team but we are kept very busy, and filling this role with someone who takes pride in helping to create a clean and welcoming space for guests is the main part of everyone's job. The team is lovely and super proud of the atmosphere we work to create here!

    Your primary responsibility would be turnover in our pods, with additional help in our bunkhouse where needed. We need someone with initiative and a keen eye, and it's very important that your application reflects this. Cleaning is reasonably physical; bed making, mopping and vacuuming, as well as lifting laundry bags and carrying them between the bunkhouse and the pods (often in very 'Scottish' weather!).

    There may also be the opportunity for some morning reception work at certain times of the year. Reception shifts will keep your head dry and involve placing bookings, responding to emails, and checking out guests. We need honest, responsible folk with an enthusiastic and joyful personality. A good level of spoken English is quite important.

    As well as accommodation in one of our luxury bunk beds (with curtains!) we also offer free internet, laundry, and tea & coffee. There is a great little village shop just down the hill from us, and local buses stop at the bottom of our driveway.

    We offer payment in line with minimum wage for all hours worked; please only message us if you have a legal right to work in the UK. Depending upon the needs of the week you will have 2-3 days off to explore the island (or just relax!).

    We require someone who can stay for at least two months, and welcome longer stays.

    You will have plenty of time to get out and about to explore the Isle of Skye. Uig is a small and friendly village with 2 shops, a hotel, a pub, a restaurant, a cafe and a brewery.

    If you don't have transport there is a bus stop just past the end of our driveway where both the local buses and the Citylink stop, so easy to get out and about. Uig is also the gateway to the Outer Hebrides; just a quick hop on a ferry and you could be exploring Lewis, Uist and beyond.

    If you want to relax, we have a wood burning stove in our lounge with a big picture window overlooking the bay. Skye offers some amazing hiking opportunities and fantastic scenery.
