Falmouth Marina is conveniently located in the sheltered waters of the beautiful Fal Estuary, with excellent transportation links and you'll be joining a close-knit marina team that strives to deliver the highest levels of customer service. Mark Evans, Marina Manager at Falmouth, has been with the company for almost 25 years, starting out as a summer seasonal staff member. Mark Dash and Elliot Homan, Duty Managers, have a combined 40 years of experience at the marina, while Mel Armstrong and Alison Marks, who run the busy office have a combined 50 years of expertise.

The full team also includes five highly experienced Marina and Boatyard Operatives Stuart, Sam, Martin, Adam and Steven, who are passionate about being out on the water, enjoying outdoor pursuits and family life. Candidates with demonstrated customer service expertise, a "can-do" attitude, and the ability to work independently whilst complementing Robert and Paul are sought by the team. Boat handling experience would be desirable, but it is not required.

Marina Manager, Mark Evans. “We are incredibly fortunate to have employees who have been with us for over twenty years. We offer a fantastic work environment in a beautiful setting, as well as opportunities to train in the role.

Their primary function is the security and safe-guarding of the marina, however their role is varied and customer-facing, as they greet visiting boats, undertake various administrative tasks overnight as well as monitoring the marina closely during storms and watching over the site and pontoons. We are looking for an all-rounder, who will get stuck in with the rest of the team and is committed to providing the highest levels of customer service.”
