Has lockdown given you a taste for remote living?
If so, a new job opportunity could be right up your street.
One company is looking to recruit someone to live and work in a remote island castle off the British coast.
The team at St Michael’s Mount in Cornwall is now looking for a live-in castle officer to join them.
This chosen individual will be expected to stay at the castle at least five nights a week and take a ‘hands-on approach’ to maintenance duties.
For those not clued- up, St Michael’s Mount is a tidal island in Marazion bay and the area has a population of just 30 people.
The island takes its name from St Michael – who supposedly appeared to a group of fishermen in 495 AD – and the oldest surviving buildings date back to the 12th century.
It can only be accessed by boat or through a man-made cobbled causeway that is available between mid and low-tide.
So people with sea sickness are advised not to apply for this position.
On the website, the team explains they are looking for someone ‘who is excited to further build on their experience and make the most of all learning opportunities.’
They add: ‘You will be able to demonstrate the highest levels of discretion, be compassionate with a tactful demeanour, have a strong motivation to be based in West Cornwall and above all be a strong team player where flexibility is essential.’
Some other duties include cleaning, researching and developing displays and managing public rooms – something pretty important with around 350,000 people visiting the island every year.

Castle steward Duncan Murdoch told the BBC: ‘The best thing about living here is having a sea view from every window.
‘The worst thing is not being able to get a pizza delivered to your door.’
