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 bar, selling hot and cold refreshments to the passengers on our boats that travel up and down the Thames from North Greenwich Pier into London every day.
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 at all times.
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 experience with us.
We will give you all the training you need to be set up for success.
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!
Please note you must be over 18 to work in this role.
Important information: This is a shift based role:
35 hour per week role: working four days on and then having two days off. These can be weekends or weekdays.
Zero hour: 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!
Shifts can either start 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 sometimes 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: We will be holding virtual interviews on MS Teams w/c 21 June and are looking for people to start work in July.
