If you and your partner would love to work together, this dream job for a couple in Scotland is just for you. Bell Ingram on behalf of the picturesque Fasnacloich Estate in Appin, near the west coast of Scotland, are recruiting for a professional couple to 'manage the house and gardens, and help with the holiday lets'. The successful applicants will 'live rent-free in a cosy cottage in the idyllic countryside. Plus your council tax and utility bills will be covered too'.
At this stage you might be thinking this all sounds too good to be true – you'll be working in a tight-knit team on a beautiful estate in exceptional, unspoiled scenery and with no rent or bills to pay. What exactly is the catch? Well, there isn't one (this is on Dream Jobsy – the dream jobs website after all!). In fact, this is such a great job, it's only becoming available the previous occupants of the role are retiring AFTER 30 YEARS! Yes, that's right – this is such a perfect dream job that your predecessors stayed here for almost their entire working life.
That's a particularly notable point as whilst many dream jobs created by companies are relatively short-term in nature (e.g. 6 to 12 month contracts), this really is a job where you might just stay for decades. If you're still interested, let's dive in to some of the details so we can understand what the day to day tasks will look like;
Split in to two separate roles of Housekeeper and Handyperson, the former will help 'manage Fasnacloich House, associated buildings and other houses on the estate [including holiday lets]' whilst the Handyperson will help maintain the gardens 'as well as assisting with the fishing on Fasnacloich Loch and River Creran, and maintaining the boats on the estate'.
Reporting directly to the Estate’s owner, the successful couple will need to be “motivated, hardworking and organised”. If that sounds like you, click on the link below.
