Full Description

This is a customer service role with a difference! You'll be working on our boats that travel up and down the river Thames from North Greenwich Pier into London every day managing one of our bars selling hot and cold refreshments to our passengers.

We will give you full training so you’ll know how to use our coffee machines. You’ll be in charge of all stock on-board, ensuring your bar is kept clean and presentable during your shift and ensuring passenger safety and well-being at all times.

As this role is based on a boat on the river, you need to be able to work on the water. If you suffer from motion sickness this role might not be for you!

We are looking for smiley, friendly, approachable people. You’ll meet tourists from all over the world and our commuters who use our service daily, so you need to be comfortable chatting to all types of people and making sure they have a great time with us.

As this role is based on a boat, you need to be able to work on the water. If you suffer from travel sickness this role might not be for you!

Important information: This is a shift-based role and we run to a timetable, much like buses. You can pick to work weekday shifts and or weekend shifts - you need to collect 8 points a month – weekend days are worth 2 points each and weekdays are worth half a point!

If you’re on an early shift they start from 4am and if you’re on a late shift they can finish at 1.30am so you need to be able to get to and from North Greenwich Pier before the tube starts or after it finishes. 

Where: All our boats leave from North Greenwich Pier, based close to The O2 and North Greenwich Tube station.

When: Our next assessment centre is on Monday 9 March 2020.

This is the only date we will be holding the assessment. To find out more about our assessment centres click here: https://careers.aegeurope.com/faqs

You will need to be able to start work with us on Monday 30 March 2020.
