Vacancy: Couple required to run small, boutique campsite in northern Spain - Applications close 25/04/2017
Employer's Name: Forest Days GlampingLocation: Spain

Where: Northern Spain, Catalonia, pre-Pyrenees region

Duration: 6 months minimum - from mid-March 2017 to September 2017 with the possibility of 2 months more.

Package: Free accommodation in an amazing location + modest monthly living wage

Other: EU passport or other passport with appropriate working visa. At least one half of the couple must be able to: (i) drive (ii) be fluent in Spanish.

Forest Days is a new and small, boutique Glamping site with just 4 tents set in secluded woodland in the foothills of the Pyrenees. We are in the centre of the Spanish region of Catalonia just 1.5 hours from the city of Barcelona and just over 1 hour from Andorra and the Pyrenees.

We are a Catalan / English couple who moved from professional careers in the UK and have spent the last 3 years setting up and running the site ourselves. We take great pride in the level of care and customer service we provide and are looking for an outgoing, well organised couple who have an eye for detail and take pride in a job well done, to live on location and take over the day to day running of the site while we direct our energies to expanding what Forest Days can offer.

Our site is located in a remote, rural spot and the tents, which all run off-grid (solar lighting, wood fires and composting toilets) are positioned across 5 acres of wild forest, so you must enjoy working in the middle of nature and have a resourceful and energetic disposition.

Often working alongside you, on site, during the day, we will continue to manage all the booking and administration tasks required to run the business while your main commitment will be to look after the guests and all the behind scene chores which go into the smooth running of the site on a daily basis.

Whilst no day is ever the same, a typical 24 hours at Forest Days could include: preparing and delivering a breakfast basket to each of the camps ; cleaning the outdoor cooking and communal eating space ; collecting and washing-up breakfast baskets ; cleaning and re-stocking our central bathrooms and facilities area ; checking in or out guests ; changing over camps ready for new guests ; dealing with guest queries ; re-stocking and cleaning occupied tents ; preparing an evening campfire ; maintaining the outdoor spaces (grass cutting / weeding / repairing paths or tracks).

Whilst a lot of your work will be outside, your working base will be an old re-purposed hunting lodge and restaurant with huge windows and fantastic views of the surrounding landscape where everything needed to run the site is kept including a huge, professional kitchen which you will be free to use when food preparation for guests is not taking place.

It is a large and inspiring place to work and there is plenty of scope to set up your own, personal work area.

Set above this is a comfortable, private, double bedroom with a sofa area and an adjacent bathroom and shower.

The work schedule will vary depending on the season. From mid-July to mid-September the site is typically occupied every night and full for most of these nights so you will need to be on site every day.

When the site is full, a typical working day consists of around 5 - 7 hours of actual work spread across the course of the day and determined by the arrival and departure of guests.

Outside of this peak period, while weekends will always be full, there can be free days within the week.

Given this you would need to be flexible with your working hours and be prepared to look at time off over the 6 months as a whole (we will, of course, work with you to ensure you get time off when needed in the busy periods).

During your time off you will able to enjoy the magnificent, natural surroundings (rivers, lakes and mountains are all close by) and experience first-hand the vibrant and friendly Catalan culture of the nearby towns of Solsona and Berga as well as the fascinating and culturally stimulating city of Barcelona.

Employer's Name: Camping Merry Sur YonneLocation: Burgundy

We URGENTLY need an energetic and friendly couple to help run our busy campsite in the beautiful French region of Burgundy. We have recently been let down by a couple and really need to take on new wardens from 1st August

We are offering a free pitch & electric for the duration of your stay and a daily main meal in the restaurant. You will also be able to do your other shopping at our wholesalers in order to minimise your shopping bill (for example a 10ltr box of wine - good quality - is only 11 euros - that's 14 bottles!!!)

Approx 5 hours per day 5 days a week. Two complete days off per week and both of you will have the same days off. Times and days must be flexible.

Duties include grounds maintenance, cleaning the toilet block, directing visitors to their pitch, serving in the shop / bar / restaurant.

Looking to welcome you NOW! Ideally until around the end of September but you would be welcome to stay longer. We are open all year so if you wanted to stay from now until the end of the year or into next season, it's fine with us.

Experience of camping / caravanning is essential - experience of working on a site desired but not essential. It's more important that you are friendly, welcoming and helpful - that's the key issue we look for when interacting with our guests. Some basic French would be welcome and/or other languages but again not essential. There are French language courses in Auxerre which we are happy to send you on.

Please email us with your details and / or CV.
