Chief Steward/ess - Rotational - €1.900 - 2.300 (freelancer) - General (Europe)
We are looking for a cordial Chief Steward/ess for one of our 3 sailing yachts - KAIROS, CHRONOS & RHEA.
Sailing-Classics runs 7-day cabin charter cruises in the Mediterranean (April - October) and Caribbean (October - April) with 16 - 26 guests, combining authentic sailing with great comfort, high-quality service (4 meals a day, good cuisine), water sports and shore excursions.
Our Chief Stews are responsible for the smooth everyday operation of the service team (consisting of 2nd stew and 3rd stew/trainee) and the cleanliness of the guest cabins and common areas.
Teamwork is an absolute must as well as collaborating with other departments and helping in the galley or wherever needed.
Previous work experience in a similar job (ideally but not necessarily at sea) is important.
You should be multitasking and have the ability to work under stress, as you will have your shift and need to overview and train the (junior) stews at the same time.
You need to be extremly guest-oriented and friendly and you need to enjoy small-talk with our guests - which is part of our sucessful, unique sailing-holiday concept. Our crew is allowed to stay on deck during their break, make a quick jump into the water or accompany guests on shore excursions every now and then.
As we are sailing continuously with guests, life on board requires a certain lifestyle. Every crewmember represents the company and is responsible for guests’ well-being. Workdays are intense and long. Board and crew language is English, guests are mainly German speaking.
For more information please check our homepage (https://www.sailing-classics.com) or our instagram page (sailingclassics).
The posiiton is available immediately or on arrangement.
If you are interested, please send your CV to the crewing department.
We are looking forward to hearing from you!
