Jobs at Pebbles of Salcombe

A family run business

Pebbles has grown phenomenly since it was founded in 2004 but it retains the friendly, supportive and professional working environment that it was built on by mother-and-son owners Deborah and James.  For example, everyone gets their birthday as holiday, there's also the team photo and reward board in the staff room (a staff room with a sea view!), and then there's the team meeting breakfasts – even the infamous Christmas Party at Buckland Tout Saints!  Like a family, we work together for each other, as well as for our clients and partners.

Career opportunities with Pebbles of Salcombe

Outstanding locations

Pebbles offers refurbishment, property management and property services in areas including Salcombe, Dartmouth, Kingsbridge, Bigbury, Noss Mayo and Loddiswell.  After recent investment and renovations undertaken by our very own refurbishment team and network of tradespeople partners, in 2017 we launched light and spacious premises in Salcombe, replete with spectacular views of the water from the new staffroom.  If you’re lucky enough to leave the office to work in the field, you’ll be spending time in a selection of the most exceptional properties in the UK, all situated 5 - 45 minutes from Kingsbridge, South Devon.

Leading remuneration packages

Leading remuneration – the bottom line £s!

In 2013 we agreed that we would seek to offer above-industry remuneration for everyone at Pebbles, always.  Our clients expect the best, so we need to be a team of the best, which isn’t possible if the company isn’t prepared to pay well.

To achieve our aim we compare the remuneration packages we offer annually to make sure we’re staying a step ahead.

We guarantee an annual increase in basic salary, we provide commissions and bonus opportunities for everyone, we invest twice the amount we’re expected to invest in everyone’s pension, we pay expenses including mileage, and much more. 

We’re not all about the bottom line but we know that the bottom line counts first for most people and we want to provide the best property management, housekeeping and cleaning jobs in Salcombe that we can.

Being a summer cleaning at Pebbles

Joining Pebbles for the third year in a row as a seasonal member of the housekeeping team, Jemima has found that being a Cleaner at Pebbles gives her the flexibility to work and earn well around her studies.


From summer job to the management track

What we take most pride in however, is offering the potential for an ongoing career path within the company. For one of our team members, a recurring summer job turned into a full-time role during the pandemic. She now continues to progress, training towards a position in management.
