Location Assistant (side job)
As a Stromma Location Assistant, you are the person our guests can turn to on the mooring. You spend most of your time outdoors as you help our guests with the pedal boats. You also help out your colleagues in our ticket shops.
You make sure the pedal boats are ready for use and that the mooring is properly prepared to receive our guests. You check our guests’ tickets and answer any questions. You help guests into and out of the pedal boats and explain the rules that apply on the water. You also support ticket shop staff by replenishing the supply of souvenirs in the shop and assisting guests in the shop on busy days. You usually work shifts – either morning and afternoon, or afternoon and evening.
- Great side job where co-workers become friends
- Work in the heart of Amsterdam
- Informal working atmosphere with convivial drinks and staff parties
- Flexible working hours – choose your own work schedule depending on your availability and preferences
- You can fit shifts around school and student timetables
