Come and experience summer working on Bryher on the Isles of Scilly as our friendly, helpful and welcoming Campsite Assistant for summer 2020.

Bryher Campsite Isles of Scilly Camping

We are a small, friendly, family-run campsite on the tiny, remote island of Bryher in the Isles of Scilly – about 30 miles off the coast of Cornwall.

With stunning ocean views, spacious fields and a friendly relaxed atmosphere, the Campsite is the perfect base for exploring the Isles of Scilly. We offer the chance for you to come and experience life on our little island, meeting people from all walks of life and exploring a truly unique (and little-known) part of the UK. You’ll have plenty of time off to explore the islands and enjoy watersports, walking and time on Bryher’s beautiful beaches.

The Job

You’ll meet and greet guests, deliver their luggage to and from the campsite using our tractor and trailer, and be their first and last experience of the campsite!

There will also be other manual work around the campsite, such as hedge trimming, trimming, weeding, painting, general maintenance work and cleaning.

Tractor collecting luggage for campsite on Bryher Isles of Scilly

We’re ideally looking for someone for April, May and June, but there may be the option of staying on through until September.

The job itself is very much part time, with daily hours varying from 2 – 4 hours per day, usually 6 days per week. Therefore, you will have plenty of time to explore the beautiful Isles of Scilly – an archipelago of five inhabited islands and hundreds of uninhabited islets, 30 miles off the coast of Cornwall.

Please note you will need to:

  • Stay for at least April, May and June 2020 (there may be the option of staying through until September)
  • Have excellent spoken English
  • Hold a full driving license (tractor driving experience useful but not essential)
  • Be physically fit as the job involves manual work and lots of heavy lifting

Above all, you will need to be friendly, helpful, welcoming and a great people person, as you will be people’s first and last impression of our campsite!

Pay & Accommodation

The accommodation is a camping pitch on the campsite itself . Our helpers really enjoy the social experience of living on the site for the season; you will become a part of people’s holiday and very much a central part of our little family business.

We pay the National Living Wage. If you want to make extra money, there is usually plenty of casual work available around the island, from gardening to bar work, although we do ask that the campsite duties take priority as we will need you to meet specific boats each day.
