There can be no finer life than to be a ferryman down at St Mawes in Cornwall, moving people across the rivers of the frilly landscape. One lucky person will be paid to be the Place Ferry Skipper from April to October.
They are looking for an experienced boat-handler but will provide training and certification for a local qualification. All you have to do is steer a little boat safely from one side of paradise to the other, taking account of the tides, carrying the tourists and locals while the money-making season is on.
To get an idea of the job, this is one of the bigger ferries towards the Falmouth side, with a pod of dolphins playing around it.
If you can't pilot a boat, they sometimes need ticketing and distribution staff.
