Are you a real go-getter? Do you face every challenge and do you like seeing results of your hard work directly? Come to the Waddenislands to work as a dishwasher and you’ll be guaranteed of an amazing experience!

We believe the title of dishwasher is one of the most underrated and undervalued jobs in the world. As the dishwasher, you are an essential worker in the kitchen. What does the job entail? Just cleaning all sorts of things, while listening to some music in the background. Doesn’t sound too bad does it? We are looking for a hard-working sanitary specialist, who wants to join our fun workforce. We are looking for someone who sees doing dishes swiftly as a challenge rather than a chore. You’re not someone to be scared to get their hands dirty.


We are only looking for applicants for the end of the summer and the months after, between August and November! Working at Vlieland 

On Vlieland we have two hotels and one beach club. Our family business once started at Hotel de Wadden in the Dorpsstraat on Vlieland. Moreover, StrandhotelSeeduyn is located right at the beach and you’ll find the only beach club on Vlieland there as well: 't Badhuys. Vlieland, Terschelling, and Ameland are popular tourist destinations with large white beaches and cozy villages. During summer tourists and workers make these islands very lively, whereas winters provide calmness allowing you to get to know your colleagues and enjoy the coziness of small communities where everyone knows each other. And, not to mention the islands have amazing natural environments.

But… working for WestCord doesn’t only mean running and sweating for your work. Because, besides working hard, we also need someone who likes swimming in the sea, someone who likes meeting new people, who likes to spend off hours sunbathing or surfing on the beach, and someone who likes to end his shifts with having a few drinks with his or her colleagues or a bonfire on the beach! Because besides colleagues, we’re also a close-knit family at WestCord.
