Want to Work Here?
Want a job running an island? How about this one? And guess what – it’s spitting distance from San Francisco!
Welcome To The East Brother Light Station!
This beautiful inn sits on a small island just north of San Francisco, near the Richmond–San Rafael Bridge — and they are looking for someone to run it!
As SFGate reports:
The current operators, Che Rodgers and Jillian Meeker, will be handing over the keys to the 1874 lighthouse turned bed and breakfast to the right couple. Applicants should be prepared to do everything it takes to keep the place running, including ferrying the guests to the .7 acre outpost on the water.
SFGate goes on to add:
“The successful candidates will be a couple, one of whom must possess a Coast Guard commercial boat operator’s license,” the not-for-profit which operates the location wrote in a press release. “They will operate the five-room inn, serving both dinner and breakfast, as well as providing ferry service for guests and all other tasks from chef to maid. High quality culinary experience and capability will be a critical qualification. The inn is open four days a week, and the island is also available for day use and special events. The new keepers will start in mid-April 2019, allowing two weeks for training.”
So what are you waiting for?
OK, I’m not qualified to do this job in any way, but I’d sure love to stay here! If you want more details about this terrific job opening, here is the rest of the story, thanks to great reporting by SFGate:
