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.
It is a picturesque holiday resort where cars are forbidden, and tourists flock year-round to enjoy the ambiance, stunning scenery and excellent hospitality of the hotel, vibrant pub, small shop, beach kiosks, holiday cottages and campsite. Herm is home to a seal colony, puffins, seabirds, the best beaches in the British Isles, has great caves to explore, and a close-knit island community.
Sister island, Guernsey, has 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 the larger island, but it is always good to get back to the peace of Herm.
Some staff return year after year, with many senior roles taken by those who started as seasonal workers. This creates a good foundation for new recruits, as there is plenty of support and willingness to help from those who have been in similar situations. Each of the Island businesses have qualified as a World Host business, offering outstanding customer service at all levels.
If you want to work away from home, on a sun-drenched paradise island, then Herm Island may well be the ideal location. We look for couples, friends, and individuals with a good work ethic, flexibility, a positive outlook and above all a customer focus mindset.
