Some customer experience.
Les Caches is set in a peaceful, idyllic situation and the building itself, offers a quiet and relaxing environment to enjoy and share with visitors. The position may suit a couple, one of whom would be willing to work on a volunteer basis. Being a complex of pretty farm buildings, there is always plenty to do, at the site. It’s our intention to make more use of the property for the enjoyment of Islanders and visitors, and the position would also suit those with good ideas and event-management skills.
Please contact: Sara Lampitt 07781 165430 or email [email protected] if you wish to discuss the position in more detail.
Volunteers are always welcome, in this and many other areas of work with National Trust of Guernsey.
