    We are looking for a manager of our beautiful converted fishing boat called Faithful. We currently rent it out as a holiday let and are looking for a manager to help clean, change beds, check in guests and deal with any issue that may arise. As it is a 60 odd year old boat there is always going to be maintenance work to carry out but this is normally painting the entire boat 2/3 times a year. No experience necessary as we can teach you everything you will need to know. You will be paid at minimum wage (varies depending on age). Please note you will need a valid visa to work in the UK for this role.

    You will be staying with us at our home in a private room, we have 2 daughters 11 & 18 that live with us and we have an adorable cat called Mr Pickles!!!!! We do not charge for the room however you will need to buy your own food but you can use our kitchen whenever you want. We live next to the Marina so we have beautiful views and are only a 5 minute walk into town. We are happy to share a meal and a bottle of wine but we would prefer to give you your own independence when choosing your food.
