We are seeking a superstar Chief Stewardess to join an extremely busy 60m private/charter, dual season charter yacht. This is a well-structured vessel, run very tightly but comes with rewards and an excellent crew culture.

Leave 38 days - can be flexible with unpaid leave etc as you prove yourself. Salary: DOE

Candidates must have 4.5 years + in the industry. We would consider someone stepping up from a 2nd Stew/Relief Chief Stew role. Ideally candidates will have worked on vessels 50-70m and must have charter experience. Proven longevity is essential - we are looking for candidates who have stayed 1-2 years on most of their vessels. The Captain and owners want commitment from the new Chief Stewardess, at least 1.5 years.

The two Captains onboard are excellent to work with. They are a great support but do not Micro manage and you will be autonomous in leading your department. Hiring and firing will be your calls, as well as the way in which you choose to run and manage the girls and the interior. The current stewardess\'s have all been onboard for over one season and some over 1 year. They are well trained and currently the vessel operates very well.

The program: A busy Med summer with back-to-back 14 weeks charter and 4-6 weeks Boss. Repeat charter guests have been coming for the last 5 years. Always 24-hour turnarounds, sometimes less! Caribbean: 5-8 weeks Boss with as many charters as they can get in between, usually 3-4 weeks. The owners are extremely particular in every aspect so experience with private owners with the highest-standards is critical. You will however, get an excellent handover from the current Chief Stewardess. The first Boss trip will be completed hand in hand with the current Chief Stewardess and she may stay onboard for up to 1-2 months as support.

We are looking for someone who is immaculately presented, very fit and active, nurturing in their leadership style, and very social. Positivity is a must, as well as keeping morale up at all times.
You will be responsible to motivate the crew to do social active activities, excursions when you have down-time. You will also be responsible to arrange these activities.
