In the interview, we will ask you things like:

  • How good are you at getting up at the crack of dawn?
  • Can you hack working in rain, hail or shine?
  • Will you stick at more boring tasks like weeding for the day?

but also…..

  • Would you like to hike up mountains and watch ospreys soar across the sky?

You will work five days a week, seven hours a day, with starts usually around 7.30am.

You will work hard, but you will have more fun than you could imagine!
