The 12 passenger hotel barge Luciole, is looking for a host to work and live onboard - From late April until early November.
A family run business for over 40 years, we cruise on the Nivernais Canal and River Yonne between Auxerre and Clamecy in central France.
The role of the host is to provide a high standard of care and attention, looking after our twelve passengers on the inside of the boat. There is a considerable amount of work shared between two hosts, on a split shift rota. The role consists of two main areas; cleaning - of the 8 cabins, and service - for each meal, as well as hot and cold drinks throughout the day. Hosts are also responsible for turning around the boat each weekend, with guests leaving on Saturday mornings and arriving Sunday evenings.
Food and accommodation is provided (each crew member has their own cabins), travel expenses are also paid for. The wage offered to the host is based on their experience and paid under the British PAYE system. Substantial gratuities are also often received.
We require crew with a hardworking, friendly and positive attitude with a good attention to detail. Teamwork is essential on the Luciole, it is vital that crew members work together and are flexible within their roles to help each other.
As a family run business we like to look after our staff and pride ourselves upon our reputation to do so. We welcome new employees to the family and enjoy to see them progress.
This is an ideal opportunity for someone looking for a change in lifestyle and to generate savings. We are looking for a friendly, outgoing person with a warm and committed personality to join like-minded crew members and this family business.
Thank you for your interest, please get in touch.
