Small island seeks warden to work on the wild side

If the world of recruitment is getting too frenetic, a small tidal island located just off the West Coast of the Channel Island of Guernsey is seeking a warden.

The BBC reports the successful recruit will have the small island of Lihou, which is only accessible by walking across a causeway at low tide, to themselves and benefit from a tractor as an alternative to a company car.

The recruit will be charged with maintaining the island’s only house and looking after the nature reserve’s wildlife.

The house on the island was built in the 1960s but became derelict a few decades later, before being rebuilt and refurbished by the Lihou Charitable Trust in 2005.

While the island is under the administration of nearby Guernsey, the new warden will be employed by the trust.
