WE ARE HIRING!
Senior Administration Role
Taggs Boatyard is an exceptional company who boast over 30 years of Boat hire experience, with a wide range of self-drive boats available to families and groups of all ages. During the warmer months, a plethora of friendly and congenial day boat hirers venture down to us to enjoy a day out on the River Thames. Taggs prides itself on its tradition and the company heritage stretches back all the way to the mid-20th century and remains a highly reputable company with a customer satisfaction track record second to none.
Based on the beautiful backwater channel by Thames Ditton Island, the company has recently acquired a brand-new, state of the art, boatshed to perform marine services on a range of private marine craft, as well as allowing our dedicated staff to keep our hire fleet in pristine condition season in season out.
Taggs also posses a long pontoon on which we have private moorers. These moorers are both residential and non-residential, with a large range of boats currently occupying this space.
Typical proceedings include dealing with happy and excited customers, including a lot of children, as well as organising the days bookings, transferring that information to the Boatyard operatives, answering the phone to make new bookings, general business correspondence and keeping boatyard supplies plentiful. As a small business, looking to grow, every day is different and more exciting than the last and the role reflects this.
Having recently undergone the transition into our new boat shed, Taggs is now looking to expand its staff base to include one or two brand new, energetic, administration staff, with part time and full-time options available.
