KORDA, a famous and cult brand in carp fishing, are recruiting – as reported in this week’s Angler’s Mail magazine (cover-dated February 28, 2012).

Here is some background about the roles…


A PERMANENT position as a bailiff will be paid £13,500 to £15,000 per annum, which is all disposable income as all living expenses are paid i.e room, food and fuel. There is also a profit-related bonus based on the success of the business.

Duties include…

  • Cooking, stock control of food and beverage, bait and tackle
 up keep as well as maintenance of the facilities.
  • Assisting clients in their day-to-day angling, offering advice and coaching as needs be. Assisting clients with large fish.

Training in catering and food hygiene is arranged in the UK and fishery management is taught on location in France. The job is varied and rewarding but is seven days a week and while there are quiet periods during the day, it will be full-on at other times.

The ideal candidate needs to be highly motivated and able to work independently and most of all be happy working in France full time.

Paid holidays are five weeks in the three-month winter season but are limited to one week in the summer.


Want to cook for Danny...

AN EXPERIENCED chef/caterer is being sought to keep the anglers and crew fed and watered during the upcoming seven-day shoot for our free DVD Carp Tackle, Tactics and Tips Volume Six in France between the April 13 and 21.

They will be required to cook breakfast and lunch for the six-strong crew, plus an evening meal for Danny Fairbrass and Damian Clarke. Storage, prepping and clean-up is possible at a clubhouse but cooking must be on the bank as the swims and clubhouse are 10 minutes apart. A basic but tasty menu will be agreed with the crew before leaving the UK.

...Damian... and the crew?

The successful candidate must have a full driving licence.

Accommodation will be provided in a local barn conversion or you can bivvy up near the swims, whatever is preferred.

The days start at 7am and finish at 6pm with some quiet periods in the day. There will not be any opportunity to fish because the catering will be a full days work, but you will of course be able to watch the filming and benefit from Danny and Damian’s experience, which is sure to add many new skills to your angling armory.

Payment is negotiable depending on your experience and various trade deals may be possible on larger items of kit. So, this first placement could lead to far more work.


ALSO in France, Korda are seeking grafters who will be constructing new swims, bankside clearance and tree work.

Work will be strenuous and the days will be long. Benefits include exploratory fishing on the Road Lake at night, which is compulsory.

A hearty breakfast and massive evening meal will be provided along with a beer or glass of vin.

Most will work for food and fishing yet those with experience and qualifications maybe paid one way or another.

CV’s should be sent by e-mail only to info@korda.co.uk
