Seasonal staff

Scottish Canals

This vacancy is no longer advertised

Customer service is key regardless of whether our visitors travel by boat, bike or boot; so we are looking for confident communicators who enjoy meeting and helping the public. You will advise visiting tourists and boaters about the locality and assist craft through the locks. As well as this, you will take responsibility for the surrounding area including grass cutting, litter picking and some minor DIY and maintenance such as painting and weeding.

You must demonstrate initiative as well as the ability to work both in a small team and independently. Health and Safety is our number one priority, and we will give you all the training you will need to carry out the role safely and efficiently.

Basic DIY skills would be advantageous as would a knowledge of boating. Proven experience of working with customers in any environment is required as is a driving license and access to your own transport.

You will work on a rota which includes weekends and bank holidays. You will work around 37 hours per week throughout the season and we are willing to consider job share opportunities also. Some staff may be required to participate in an out of hours standby system.

The roles are being offered on a seasonal basis to September 2017.  Scottish Canals are a Living Wage employer and offer a competitive salary.  Details will be discussed at interview stage.

If you would like to be considered for a seasonal job, please complete an application form stating you are interested in positions on the Crinan Canal and return to Canal House, Applecross Street, Glasgow, G4 9SP, or drop a completed form into your local Scottish Canals office. If you require assistance completing this application form or require a modified version, please get in touch with our recruitment team on 0141 354 7546.
