Each year we have a number of seasonal positions for friendly crew, stewards and skippers to work on our fleet of boats. Vacancies will be listed below if we are looking for anyone particular, but we are always interested in hearing from people who have the right skills, experience and attitude. If you interested in working with us please send your CV to firstname.lastname@example.org and tell us a little about yourself.
Join us on the River Dee this summer as a part-time seasonal crewmember at ChesterBoat.
This is a really varied role at one of Chester’s top visitor attractions. It will include collecting fares using a handheld ticket machine; keeping boats clean inside and out; upselling cruise tickets and answering questions on the quayside; handling ropes; selling drinks from the bar; and keeping our passengers safe and happy.
Ideally you will have worked in a customer-facing role before, but being friendly, outgoing and helpful is more important than experience. We are looking for someone work works well in a team and always delivers first-class customer service.
Training will be provided for rope handling, first aid, boat safety, etc. For the right candidate, there may be opportunities for further training to become an MCA-qualified skipper.
Due to the nature of the business, this will involve weekend and evening work, and working outdoors in all weather. Shifts are available immediately until October, but we can accommodate an earlier finish to work around college/university term dates.
