I am on the lookout for a young Parsi male to assist with my ventures in Bhuj. The profile would involve looking after and managing a small Heritage Homestay. Remuneration would be dependent on the candidates experience and qualification and would be mutually discussed and fixed after a brief period of probation. Boarding would also be found.
The Bhuj House is a 150 year old traditional Parsi “Courtyard” home in Bhuj. The house has recently been restored, and 4 rooms have been converted to guest rooms. Bhuj is a small town and The Bhuj House is conveniently sited just a short distance from Bhuj’s historic sites and shopping bazaar. Bhuj is an ideal base to explore the larger region of Kutch: many of the craft villages are close by; wildlife-rich areas are just over an hour away, as is a journey out to the breath-taking expanse of salt in the Great Rann. Kutch is also home to the ancient Indus Valley (Harrapan) civilization.
Responsibilities of the homestay would include the overall running of the place. Meeting and briefing international visitors, planning and organising itineraries within kutch, and occasionally accompany visitors on excursions would be required. Maintenance of the homestay and daily admin like store keeping, maintaining daily accounts, shopping, fixing menus and supervising the Kitchen, and overseeing a local team of 5 – 6 personnel would be a part of the responsibilities. Candidates with an interest in hospitality and travel would be ideal.
