Why work for us? 

Founded in Edwardian times, we are Cambridge's premier and longest-standing punting company.  With three boat hire stations and over 175,000 visitors each year, we are also one of Cambridge's most popular and high profile attractions. Our success has been built upon being clear about what really matters and this is present in every aspect of our business. 

  • We do business with integrityconsideration and responsibility for our local community and our people. 

  • Our story is intertiwned with that of Cambridge itself, and we aim to serve as ambassadors for the city and its rich heritage. 

  • We have fun in our work and we want our customers to have fun while they’re with us, in an accessible, safe and welcoming environment.

  • We’re an inclusive company that welcomes everyone and wants to bring the pleasure of punting to the widest possible audience.

  • We see ourselves as the originators and custodians of punting in Cambridge, respecting the river and its traditions, yet always exploring new ideas to improve the experience we offer.

  • We continue to keep the knowledge and skills of our staff growing through continuous development and the sharing of experience and know-how.

  • We pride ourselves on Customer Experience, making punting the best it can possibly be, for residents, visitors and our people.

We are a seasonal business, and natrually we are at our busiest through the Spring, Summer and early Autumn.  But operating 364 days a year if the river allows, we are always on the look out for customer-focused, friendly and outgoing people with excellent communication skills and a real passion for first class customer experience to join our team. We have a variety of roles, including River Tour Guides, Cashiers, Boathands and Office based positions. 

We operate a rolling recruitment programme throughout the year so, regardless of season, if we sound like your kind of place, then get in touch. Experience is not essential as full training will be given to successful applicants.
