Join our Crew

A job you’ll love at one of the best hospitality venues on the stunning North Norfolk coast.

You could work anywhere. Everyone wants your skills. So how do you choose your next job?

For the first time in a long time, you have choices about where you work, how you work and your work/life balance.

Choosing to work at The Ship Hotel in Brancaster could be one of the best decisions you can make.

Join our crew and you’re choosing to work with a team who are empowered to offer the highest levels of service on the Norfolk coast, truly valued, in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.

Freedom to shine

Being positive, taking ownership, paying attention to detail, going the extra mile and being exceptional are easy when when your fellow team members believe in themselves and in each other.

Where colleagues respect each others skills and support each other through the challenges of a busy service, your team thrives.

The Ship believes in empowering its people to deliver excellence, giving them freedom to shine and rewarding them for doing what they do to the highest standard.

Choose the freedom to be the best you can be in a place where your individuality, skills and energy are highly prized.

“A lovely location close to the beach where we welcome dogs and make them feel special along with their owners. The Ship Hotel has a magic of combining rustic charm with the boutique style throughout.”

Benefits to make it worthwhile

Fair share of tips (around £3 per hour) with guaranteed minimums on top of fair pay.

Free and freshly cooked food on shifts

Free on-site parking

Ongoing training and coaching (we believe in promoting internally to provide genuine career development).

Christmas gifts

Company events

Company discount on food, drink & accommodation across each of the 3 hotels in our group (The Maids Head Hotel in Norwich, The Gonville Hotel in Cambridge and, of course, ourselves at The Ship).

“It is a pleasure to work at The Ship as, although we work hard through our shifts we love creating a lovely atmosphere for our guests giving them a memorable experience which in turn we can share their holiday experience.

Down time matters too

When you’re on shift, you’ll be working hard in a fast paced but fun and relaxed venue where guests and diners expect you to be at your best.

But when you’re off shift, you need to be able to live your life.

Flexible rota patterns can be developed to make sure you have time to do what you want to do to maintain a good work life balance and enjoy the stunning Norfolk coast whenever you can.

And if you’re not local, we want you to be able to relax and enjoy the great accommodation we provide for key members of our team in nearby Thornham (if you don’t drive, we can provide an electric bike to get back to us).

“I would not work in any other hotel as The Ship has so much to offer and the staff are looked after well. Step on board and join the Ship’s Crew”
