Seasonal jobs in the Channel Islands

Although not part of the United Kingdom, Jersey and Guernsey have been self governed since the 13th Century, you don't need a permit to work in Jersey if you are a British or Irish citizen.

Jersey, Alderney and Guernsey are located in the English channel about 30 miles off the coast of Normandy. Both large and small employers offer a wide range of jobs on the Channel Islands. For seasonal jobs accommodation is often included in the package (if it's a hotel job it will probably be a room in the hotel, or for independent restaurant jobs this may be an allowance). The Channel Islands maintain their own immigration and border controls but in practical terms the UK treats them as if they were part of the UK, as do the islands.

The Islands have several airports or can be reached by ferry from the UK or France – you could nip over to Normandy on your days off! Condor Ferries take on extra summer staff to work on these ferries if you want to travel with your seasonal work.

As well as Guernsey itself, the collection of islands under the same constitutional umbrella (Bailiwick of Gurnsey) includes Alderney, Sark, Herm, Jethou, Brecqhou, Burhou, Lihou (you may not be aware of some of the smaller ones but they are all worth a look.

English is the only language spoken by most inhabitants now but French is a distinct advantage if you want a customer facing tourism job. French used to be the only official language which you can still see in a lot of the Family and place names.
