Ever wanted to be Captain of your own boat? Do you have a passion for tourism, hospitality and boating with plenty of customer service experience?
Anglo Ventures Ltd operate several businesses ranging from retail outlets, wine bars, a travel service and we are currently in the process of launching a hotel-boat cruise service in England and Scotland.
We are looking for a Cruise Manager to join our brand new venture, Anglo Cruises.In February 2017, Anglo Ventures will be acquiring a 30m cruising hotel barge based near Reading on the River Thames. For the 2017 season, the boat will operate a series of 5-day cruises (Wednesday to Sunday) from March to October.
The boat accommodates just 12 passengers in intimate en-suite cabins with a small restaurant and bar area and a lounge on the upper deck as well as an outside seating area and is operated by a crew of just 3 people, lead by the Cruise Manager who will also double up as the Skipper!(You do not need to have any boating license for this position).
This is definitely an “all-rounder” position for someone who really wants to get their hands dirty and work as part of a team to build on the boats already high reputation.
Job responsibilities include:
·Assisting in the planning of our cruises
·Skippering our 30m barge on 3 and 5-day scheduled cruises
·Placing orders, arranging for deliveries of F&B stock, and helping with menu planning etc
·Welcoming guests aboard and carrying out a Welcome & Safety Brief
·Arrange for fuel, water and pump-out when required
·Managing two other crew members to ensure our guests have the best possible holiday
·Help with new ideas to increase popularity and grow the business
The Cruise Manager will be employed full time all year round. During the main season, the requirement will be to live onboard and work a 6 day week (time off from Sunday afternoon until Tuesday afternoon). During the off-season (November to February), the Cruise Manager will enjoy a 3-day week, based between the boat and our offices in Central London. (Salary will be equal throughout the year).
From 2018, it is hoped to extend the cruising area to include Oxford, Windsor and London.
