Work with us

Burgh Island Hotel is a bucket list destination for many, but what is Island life really like? We’re totally unique, beautifully eccentric, we love creating memorable experiences, and we also remain a little bit of a mystery! Above all, we are here for our guests and we thrive on delivering the best service possible. If our description and your description match, a future at Burgh Island could be in the offing.

Many of our talented team live and work in this beautiful location and, whilst we all work really hard, we also know the very best ways to spend our free time. From paddle boarding to kayaking and from cosy nights in The Pilchard to reading up about our many famous historical guests, it’s definitely a lifestyle career at Burgh.
