Blue Boat Company is looking for: 

Hospitality worker

Looking for an enjoyable (part-time) job in the center of Amsterdam? Do you enjoy taking initiative, being active, and don’t mind getting your hands dirty? Then Blue Boat Company has the ideal (part-time) job for you!

As a Hospitality employee (we refer to this position as “Mepper/Steiger Host”), you’ll ensure that all tasks on and around the pier and on the canal cruise boat are completed. This includes setting up catering items that need to be brought on board. You might also be involved in maintaining the cleanliness of the piers and managing dishwashing.

You start your day by cleaning the canal cruise boats, ensuring that our guests can step into a fresh and clean boat. Once the boats are sparkling, you’ll focus on cleaning and preparing the glassware for all our catering cruises. Additionally, you’ll assist in maintaining the cleanliness of our company spaces and perform minor maintenance tasks such as changing light bulbs, tending to plants, and restocking supplies. During busy periods, you’ll assist on the pier and guide our guests to the appropriate boat. In short, there’s a lot of variety right in the heart of Amsterdam.
Furthermore, there are various other cleaning tasks at our sales location and our back-office office that are part of your role. Your task as a pier host involves ensuring that our guests board the correct boat during busy times on the pier. In this Mepper/Steiger Host role, you’ll always have an active hands-on task.

Since the canal cruises take place 7 days a week, there’s always a day or evening that fits well with your personal life and free time.

This position is available both on a call-in basis and as a fixed-hours basis. If you choose the call-in basis, this is likely a part-time job for you. You’ll receive an hourly wage that corresponds to your age. It’s certainly more than working at the supermarket checkout!

For those who prefer a stable job with fixed hours, we offer a competitive market-based salary.

What we offer
A dynamic and flexible role at a fun company, no two days are the same.

Your work hours will be determined through discussion. We are open year-round, 7 days a week, during the day and in the evening, including holidays.
