The Role: You will work on board our boats that travel up and down the Thames assisting the Master, Mates and Onboard Customer Service Assistants (OCSA) ensuring our customer’s safety at all times and making sure they have a wonderful journey with us.

You will make sure any boat maintenance and cleaning is carried out efficiently and effectively and also assist the OCSA when required with serving the customers on board and stocking the boat.

You: If you enjoy working with the public, being outside on the river and being part of a fun and busy team then this could be the role for you!

We’re looking for people who are looking to develop their career in the maritime industry and progress within Thames Clippers from DCSA to Mate to Master. We’re looking for ambitious and driven individuals who want to succeed.

You will be approachable, friendly and helpful, not only to the passengers on board but also to your colleagues. We expect you to deliver the same amazing experience to our customers at the end of your shift as you do at the start.

Where: You will spend your days on our vessels, which all leave from North Greenwich Pier, based near The O2 arena. The nearest tube station is North Greenwich on the Jubilee line.

Assessment centre: We’ll be holding an assessment centre on Friday 10 January 2020 at 9.15am or 2pm. You will need to be available to attend this assessment in person. If you cannot attend this assessment, please sign up for job alerts instead so you can be notified of when we’ll be hiring again.

When: You’ll need to be able to start work with us on 10 February 2020.

Important information: You will be based on our boats on the river and that means you will be on your feet for 10 hour shifts. We will provide you with a full uniform including warm clothing to defend against the British weather! The shift pattern is 4 days on, 2 days off.
