Background information on
Herm Island is located just three miles off Guernsey in the Channel Islands, and measures just a mile and a half long and half a mile wide.
A beautiful Island which is home to a seal colony, puffins, seabirds, the best beaches in the British Isles, great caves to explore, and a great Island community. We are also only 20 minutes away from Guernsey, an Island with 60,000 inhabitants, and all the benefits of a major UK town. As an employee of Herm Island, you will receive heavily subsidised travel to and from Guernsey, but it is always good to get back to the peace of Herm.
Many of our staff return year after year, and so you will find that some senior roles are taken by those who have started a few seasons ago, and have grown into the responsibility of the role. This also creates a good foundation for seasonal staff in their first season on Herm, as there is plenty of support and willingness to help from those who have been here before. Each of the Island businesses have qualified as a World Host business, offering outstanding customer service at all levels.
If you are about to embark on a working visa trip around Europe, or if you simply want to work away from home on a sun drenched paradise Island which is less than an hour away from the UK, but only 16 miles away from France, then Herm Island may well be the ideal location. We look for couples, friends and individuals either with good experience or with drive, determination and character to work in our teams.
