You could be paid to live on a magical island – if you don’t mind doing some work in return.

Tresco, in the Isles of Scilly off the coast of Cornwall, is hiring new employees.

Jobs include cleaners, cooks and front of house staff to cater to tourists that flock to the island this year.

Employing new workers is key as only 150 people permanently live on the small island of Tresco.

Successful candidates get full pay and accommodation thrown in too.

Other benefits include travel to and from the island, restaurants and shopping deals, as well as discounts for family and friends who visit.

Nick Halliday, CEO of Tresco Estate, said guests can enjoy a "chalet hosting at a ski resort but swap the snow for lush golden sand and a subtropical climate.”

He said: "Everyone has fantasised about fleeing to a remote island and escaping the hustle and bustle of normal life.

"With varied island jobs to choose from, now is the chance to turn that dream into a reality.”

Of course, you don’t have to get a job at the island to visit it.

If you’re fancying a staycation that feels like a Caribbean retreat, it’s a great lower cost alternative.

Appletree Bay has often been mistaken for a tropical paradise due to its white sand and crystal clear water.

There’s more than 20,000 exotic plants at Tresco Abbey Garden.

And other tourist attractions that pull in guests include the historic sites of Cromwell’s Castle, King Charles’s Castle and Old Blackhouse.

Tresco is just 28 miles from the Cornish coast so you can visit by helicopter, plane or boat.
