* Accommodation, Work Clothes, All meals, Laundry, Holiday and more

Job type: Immediate Start / Seasonal Work

Job description

We are offering an opportunity to experience a unique way of life whilst using your great cooking skills.

Tranquil Rose is a hotel with a difference; a floating hotel boat cruising the Inland Waterways.

We carry up to eight guests as we travel the Canals and Rivers of Southern England through some beautiful and little-seen countryside.

We are looking for a hardworking, fun-loving Chef / Cook / Crew Member to join us for the remainder of our 2022 season until mid or late October, and you will be rewarded with experiences that will be with you for a very long time.

If you would like a mundane 9 to 5 job, then this is not the position for you.

You must have the ability to work long hours in a small team, be able to multitask, be physically fit and enjoy the outdoor life, and perhaps most of all have a great sense of humour as this is a job to be enjoyed! This is hard but very rewarding work; after all, how many jobs give you the opportunity of waking up with a different view outside your bedroom (cabin) window each morning?

Duties and Responsibilities will include:

* Your duties will be split between alternating days, cooking and crewing.
* A passion for food and good cooking skills are important, possibly gained whilst working in a pub or restaurant.
* We are proud of the quality and variation of the food we provide our guests and expect you to take the same pride in your work.
* Knowledge of boating is not needed as we will give you all the training required to become proficient at locking, rope work and general boat handling, and even steering our 70' hotel boat.

This is a "live on board" position in shared crew accommodation and all your food, accommodation, laundry, and uniform will be provided.

Job Summary

To sum up; if you like the outdoor life, work well in a team, have good cooking skills, are willing to turn your hand to cleaning, boat handling and working locks, and are outgoing and sociable, this could be the job for you.

Ideally, you are available to start work immediately, and if you join us, who knows you may well end up having a fun summer after all!


* Opportunities to experience a unique way of life on the canals and rivers of Southern England.
* Food, Accommodation, Laundry, and Uniform provided
* Learn about Boat Handling Skills
* Four weeks Annual Holiday pro-rata or payment in Leu
