Join the Crew

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 and tell us a little about yourself.


Seasonal Crewmembers

As we get ready for the busy season ahead, we’re looking for seasonal crewmembers to join the ChesterBoat team on our sightseeing and party cruises.

Being a crewmember involves rope handling, customer service, learning the boat’s safety procedures and equipment, cleaning boats inside and out, selling tickets in the kiosk, and serving drinks from the onboard bar.

For the right person, additional training will be available to gain your Boatmasters’ qualification and become a skipper.

No experience is necessary as we’ll show you the ropes. We are looking for people who are friendly, reliable, great at working in a team, and happy to turn their hand to anything.

You will need to be able to travel to Chester city centre as early as 8am (we normally start at 9am or 9.30am) and finish as late as 11pm on a Friday/Saturday night.

Regular shifts are available from March to October, with ad hoc work available out of season.

Pay starting from £80 per day and £10 per hour for evening bar shifts.

Due to serving alcohol, you will need to be 18 (or turning 18 in April) to apply.

To apply, please send an email to to tell us a little bit about yourself and attach your CV if you have one. Please also let us know your availability (when you can start, any days you have a regular commitment such as college, etc).
