Your day to day

If you'd like to embrace a wider world of experiences and opportunities, we'd like to welcome you to the world's most international luxury hotel brand as a Deck Hand in our purchasing team; a key role based off island who will support the Vessel Master with the transportation of all goods to ensure timeliness and the highest standards of delivery are maintained.

You'll be a healthy and enthusiastic individual who can communicate easily with both your fellow team members and assist with the receipt, issue, storage and transfer of all goods.

Your key duties and responsibilities will also include;

  • Inspect safety equipment and report any deficiencies to the Master.
