Flotilla Job Roles

You will need to be approachable and easy-going as many of your clients may be beginners and will need reassurance.
The Hostie is generally regarded as a 'people' person and the most sociable member of the lead crew. They are the link between the crew and clients and their attitude can make or break a flotilla. If you are enthusiastic about the holiday your clients should be as well. You will need to be approachable, understanding and discreet at all times.
Engineers are employed largely for their trade skills but personality is also very important. We look for people who are approachable and easy-going.
