We are now looking for permanent and temporary Punt Chauffeurs to work for Let’s Go Punting for the 2019 season.

If you are articulate, hard working, energetic and generally of a positive outlook then perhaps you would enjoy a season of punting along the college ‘Backs’. Although not essential languages would be considered to be an advantage and you will need to be physically able to punt as much as 10 miles in a day (on the busiest days). Whilst doing that you will need to brush up on your history because you will be expected to deliver a entertaining spiel regaling tales of alumni, architecture and the academic history of the jewel in Cambridge’s crown….the University! Daunted? Don’t be, training will be provided which will bring your punting skills up to scratch in no time and your customer service will improve with every tour.

Working with Let’s Go Punting is a great way to meet people from all around the world, work in an outside environment plus an opportunity to work for a fun and reliable company.

Please note you must have eligibility to work in the UK and be available to work weekends and holidays.
