You could live (and work) on a remote holiday home on the Isle of Skye this summer

Fancy taking up a seasonal job this summer?

If you’re looking for a little escapism at the moment (and let’s face it, who isn’t?) then you could be in luck, as one company is looking for a couple to run a holiday home over the summer.

The property in question is pretty much as remote as they come, located on an island off the coast of Scotland — the Isle of Skye.

Silver Swan Recruitment is in search of a couple to come and run the holiday home, from April through October 2020. The hired individuals will be responsible for maintaining the rental property — particularly in regards to keeping it clean and orderly — as well as welcoming guests for their stays.

The job description notes that the desired candidates should have housekeeping experience, the ability to work in the European Union, a driver’s license and a flexible attitude. Accommodation will be provided to the selected housekeepers and each individual will be paid £1,200 a month for their efforts.

The company said, ‘ The adventurous Isle of Skye Management role will see the successful couple spend their summer on the remote island, managing a beautiful property while exploring the wild countryside and immersing themselves in Scotland’s unique culture. The Isle of Skye Management role is the perfect position for a couple who are looking to get away from it all and spend a peaceful summer in the Scottish wilderness.’

The Isle of Skye — which is part of the Inner Hebrides (a chain of Scottish islands) — is best-known for its picturesque scenery, particularly its unique rock formations. 

Despite its remote setting, the property still has whole host of modern facilities, such as electricity, Wi-Fi, and phone reception. There’s little chance you’ll be disturbed during your stay, too, as the island has a population of roughly 10,000 people.

Those looking to apply can do so on the company website, by filling in a short form and uploading a CV.
