The Superb Role
This is a great position shipboard. The sparkling new shipboard atrium houses a fabulous bar concept, with an extensive range of premium spirits and cocktails. Enjoying a cocktail with friends is part of the cruise experience, and this new facility will take that experience to a new level. Onboard will be an extensive and unique range of spirits to craft a brand new range of cocktails focusing on quality and presentation.

The cruise line offers a wide range, from spirits from around the world. Some will be known some may not be so well known and maybe a little obscure. It will also include some that will be well known brands and high end.

You the professional need to know the products and cocktails involving but not limited to the following liquor:

• Tequila (dark and white)
• Whiskey (all profiles)
• Rum (dark and white)
• Vodka
• Gin
• Cognacs
• 10 to 20 liqueurs / cordials

The cruise liner is looking to offer approx 12 signature cocktails that may have a little twist on them!

YOU The Exciting Candidate
You might have worked onboard a cruise liner before within the bar function but if not, your background will be from a high-end respected bar or club from Europe. You will have a great skill and understanding of ‘edu-tainment’ with your passion for serving the Guest second to none.

You will have circa 1½ years of cocktail making experience and you will be able to craft your cocktails smoothly, rapidly and effortlessly. The role is offering the Guest an ‘experience’ rather than simply a drink and you will have the knowledge of spirits and liqueurs to ‘tell’ the guest where they are from, and how they are made. The serving of the cocktail should be in minutes not tens of minutes. You will be brilliant at ‘upselling’ and ‘suggestive selling’ ensuring your bar and beverage targets are surpassed. Your understanding of cleanliness / USPH or equivalent will be incredible and you will be able to work in a small arena.

You will be able and willing to work 7 days a week for a 6 month period. Your passion to personally and professionally develop will be apparent and you will happily act as an ambassador of the company in this high profile position. Ofcourse it goes without saying there is no alcohol to be drunk behind the bar whilst working, so your measures and pouring will be needed to be exact. There will be a cocktail list for you to learn and work with too…although I am sure your creativity and ideas from the past will be embraced within the business also.

You will be able to fund your own medical and be available for a phone / Skype / face to face interview determined on where you are in the world. Your CV will be exceptionally presented with all weblinks, contact details and months as well as years you have worked in each position listed.

If this really great opportunity is for you and you match the requested work history and background for the role, please send me your up to date and professional CV. Kindly ensure it has all of your contact details clearly listed with the correct telephone numbers on too!

I am here to help should you have any questions and I look forward to supporting your application. Should you need to contact me at any time, please feel free.

Best Regards
