An opportunity has come up to live and work on St Michael's Mount - dream job or what?!

The property is advertising for an "enthusiastic and dedicated" Visitor Services Manager.

Last year, the iconic tourist attraction in west Cornwall pulled in 350,000 visitors.

Now it is looking for someone who can "lead and motivate" a team to help keep tourists and locals coming back.

The full-time role comes with a pretty decent salary too, of between £24k and £29k a year.

Officials say service accommodation is available on the Mount itself, if the potential candidate wants it.
