You must be available to work a minimum of five weeks during High Season (23 July – 27 August).

You must be aged 18+ on the first day you’re contracted to work.

Will I be paid?

Yes. Couriers are employed under French contracts that are fully compliant with French and EU law. Salaries are paid at standard rates, from which a modest deduction is made for food and accommodation.

Do I need to organise my own travel?

Couriers are responsible for organising and paying for their travel to Portsmouth harbour. We will then organise and pay for travel from Portsmouth harbour to Le Pas Opton via ferry and train/minibus. Alternatively we will contribute towards air fares.

What about accommodation and meals?
