If you’ve ever wanted to live on an island, this job could help get you there. St. Michael’s Mount is home to one of the area’s most famous medieval castles – and the island is looking for a visitor services manager. “Giants, mermaids, miracles, and more have all left their imprint,” according to St. Michael’s Mount’s history web page. “All you have to do is set foot on the island, look and listen. Who knows what you’ll discover?”
St. Michael’s Mount is an island connected to the town of Marazion in England. The island, a mere 0.09 square miles, is accessible by causeway at low tide and boat at high tide, and boasts a medieval castle and church. There are sub-tropical gardens and medieval pathways to explore. Buildings on the island date back to the 12th century, according to the National Trust.
St. Michael’s Mount’s history page divulges more of the island’s storied past: “From a pilgrim’s path uncovered in the 1950s that is now the main route to the castle, to ancient tree stumps, blackened with age, unearthed in recent storms, and Bronze age artefacts dug up by our gardeners — the Mount never ceases to surprise us. What secrets will it yield to you?”
