Careers at CHC

Come work with us

Founded with family values, that remain as true today, as they were in 1978, the Cornish Holiday Cottages team look forward to meeting you.

Cornish Holiday Cottages is a small, holiday letting agency, managing around 80 holiday homes in the Falmouth and Helford River area. Our small team of six operate out of our office/shop front in the centre of Mawnan Smith village, the heart of the area we cover.

Our little team are a close knit bunch, who look out for each other and enjoy our time together, so much so that we installed a lovely kitchen and meeting space, where we often enjoy nutritious, plant based team lunches together and there’s options to work out/do yoga together if that takes your fancy too.

With the right place to stay, holidays are made. It’s something Ruth Austen knew when she set up this business in 1978 and something we swear by today. We pour over each property in our portfolio, making sure it ticks all the boxes so we can find the right fit for each guests’ holiday habits. We’re human (and dog centred) and we care about the natural landscape and our big blue seas. Currently we’re in the process of getting our ducks in a row to hit the button on our BCorp application. A big undertaking but so worthwhile. If you want to be part of something small with a big heart then we would love to hear from you.
