With over 60 miles of spectacular coastline, rich in wildlife and history, North Cornwall stretches from just south of Newquay to the north of Bude.

(Please let us know your location preference within your application).

This role is an hourly paid, fixed term role. Wherever possible we aim to offer a consistent working pattern, but we’re looking for flexibility as it may be necessary for us to alter this pattern from time to time to suit the needs of the business. We’d give you as much notice of this as possible.

What you'll be doing

You’ll be working outside, meeting and greeting our visitors, providing help and guidance on where to park and may be required to sell parking tickets. You'll help to keep the car park and surrounding area in good order, and provide a courteous and informative service to our visitors.

You’ll also be responsible for answering queries and making sure visitors can find everything they need for their visit. When interacting with our customers, you’ll inform them of the amazing work we are doing and what their money is funding, promoting local projects or promoting our cause.
