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 Crewmember

As we head into our busy summer season, we are looking for an additional seasonal crewmember to join the ChesterBoat team for sightseeing cruises, party nights, and private hires on the River Dee.

This is a temporary summer job – regular shifts are available from May to September, with occasional ad hoc work available out of season if wanted, plus the opportunity to go back in future summers. For successful crew who return for future seasons, additional training may be available to gain qualifications and become a skipper.

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. The role will involve weekend and evening work, as well as working outdoors in all weather.
