Full Description

Here at Thames Clippers we have a strong team ethic, we take pride in what we do, and we respect each other which make it a great place to work!

As an On-board Customer Service Assistant (OCSA) you will run your own refreshments bar, selling hot and cold drinks to the passengers on our boats that travel up and down the Thames from North Greenwich Pier into London every day.

You’ll welcome passengers as the enter the boat and always deliver excellent customer service. You’ll manage all the stock on-board and make sure your bar is kept clean and presentable during your shift.

Another key part of the role is always ensuring passenger safety. You’ll be part of the crew on board which means you will need to complete safety drills regularly and keep up to date with your training.

We are looking for smiley, friendly, approachable people. You’ll meet tourists from all over the world alongside 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 first-class experience with us.

Things you need to know:

  1. This is a shift-based role, working 42 hours per week over 7 days. Currently the shift pattern is set at working four days on and then having two days off. You’ll be required to work weekends and weekdays. This working pattern is subject to change due to Timetable changes or business needs.
  2. Shifts can start either very early in the morning or finish late at night, therefore you will need to be able to get to and from North Greenwich Pier before the tube starts or after it finishes.
  3. As this role is based on a boat, you must be able to work on the water. If you suffer from motion sickness this role won’t be for you!


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