How is this for a dream job?? VIERS – the Virgin islands Environmental Research Station – an eco camp located out near Lameshur bays, is looking for caretakers to look over its property this fall. Here are all of the details straight from its manager…
I am looking for a retirement-aged couple who would be interested in being a caretaker for VIERS during August and September. At least one individual in the couple needs to have basic maintenance skills (i.e., is comfortable fixing leaks, making small repairs, turning on a generator, etc), although a “handy” caretaker is strongly preferred. The idea would be that I would train the couple for a period of time and then leave VIERS in their hands during the month of September. September is dead season, so they would not have the responsibility of tending to guests. The main duties would include maintenance/upkeep projects and cleaning. Some tasks will be specific to the caretaker’s talents (for example, sewing curtains should one or both individuals know how).
If you are or know a couple who would love to live at a Caribbean field station in the National Park, less than a mile from multiple beaches and trails, HAS A STRONG WORK ETHIC and enjoys the kind of work this would require, please contact at (contact info removed after position filled). Calling is best. Thanks! -Whitney
Sounds pretty intriguing doesn’t it?
