Could You Look After Scarborough's Lighthouse?

Could You Look After Scarborough's Lighthouse?

Scarborough Borough Council need someone to look after the town's historic lighthouse.

They've advertised a vacancy for an attendant to take care of it, as well as carry out other duties around the harbour.

They say the job's changed radically from the traditional 'light house keeper', and it's now more about helping visitors.

Captain Chris Burrows, Deputy Harbour Master, said:

"Nowadays with technology, the lighthouse attendants don't particularly focus on the light itself, they're more of a figurehead for the visitors as they arrive in Scarborough, ensuring they get the best of the facilities available.

It's a nice job, you spend a lot of time out in the harbour, hopefully in the beautiful sunshine across the summer. Our lighthouse attendants are based in the very bottom of the lighthouse itself, it's a nice view from there out across the South Bay and the harbour."
