We're often looking for like-minded people that are as stoked as we are, to call Lofoten our home and want to be part of creating something special here at FURU.
If you love life, the outdoors, are enthusiastic about learning new skills and have no problem getting your hands dirty, please write to us. We are looking for positive people that are energetic, smiling and excited to whatever comes your way.
We believe that attitude is everything and skills can be learned. No matter your background, we are happy to hear from you! Please write us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, with your cv and a few lines about what really makes you happy. Please indicate in your subject for what position you are applying to.
Before you write us an email though, please check the list below for our current openings. If there are no postings below, we got our crew together for the season and we won't be able to read your application. We will however keep this page updated with new job postings and feel free to contact us again when you see a job that is of your interest.
We don't have staff housing at this moment, but we are always supporting your housing search. However, we got a few Van spots for our staff for the days you work at FURU.
We would love to answer all of your nice messages, but due to the large amount of emails we receive, we will only contact you if we move on with the interview process. Thanks so much for considering being part of our humble, little FURU family.
Have fun out there and spread some positive vibes :)
Guri, Arne and the FURU family
Flexibles in Housekeeping // all year round
If you don't look for a full-time role or maybe have already a job and still would like to work at FURU in between, this role might be for you. All year round, we look for staff that can come in to support us at busy events in the Café or help with houskeeping. If you want to be part of the FURU crew but only have a few random hours to work, do send us a message. This fits probably perfectly if you already live in Lofoten.
