We are currently advertising for an Operational Maintenance staff to undertake various duties around the marina.
Working around the tides, opening and closing the dock gate, checking boats, cleaning and maintenance of the assets, it is an opportunity to work outside and enjoy the fresh, breathtaking environment of the harbour. This is a varied job, with many activities, meeting and greet the clients and general public around the site.
“A typical day in the life of an Operational Assistant beginnings by opening the offices and being ready to start work at 8:00, (although this could be sooner depending on tides), checking the diary for messages from the out of hours staff. Monitor the CCTV ensure that everything is in order. Then walk the pontoons checking the ropes and fenders on the boats, making sure that no electrical cables have come out of the pods. Then onto the inspections, which range from inspecting the pontoons for slip or trip hazards to ensuring the toilet and showers are clean and tidy. Opening the dock gate when the water level is 2.4 metres above the sill height. Then monitoring the VHF radio when the tide is in and assisting clients as and when required, this varies depending on weather. Of course you will need to close the gate after high water and when there is 2.4 metres of water on the sill again. There is always repairs to do or painting, or generally site cleaning or lifting boats out of the water with the 25 tonne slipway hoist or putting a boat back into the water from the hard standing storage. There is gas oil to be sold or bottle gas or electricity cards and not forgetting the most important part of the job, which is to ensure that the customers see your friendly helpful face and pass the time of day with them. Depending on the weather conditions walking the pontoons to ensure the boats are okay and there is no hazards this happens at least twice or three times a day, giving you the fresh air and exercise that will keep you fit and well. ”
