I have a new job!!!
I have been working as a temp at Sawley Marina for ten weeks now, and thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it, and now they have given me a permanent contract!!.. I work in the Chandlery there, and sell all sorts of items to some of the nicest people!!!
The Marina is very large and attracts many visitors for the boat brokerage, moorings and canal boat hire, not to mention the passers by – on boats or otherwise – so there is always a holiday air about the place. The Chandlery sells a huge amount of things, everything for the boating enthusiast from dinghys to outboard engines right down to the smallest shackle – the list is endless. There is also a part of the shop that caters for basic food shopping for the new arrivals – just to start them off…… then there is clothing – including wetsuits, maps and souvenirs….
Try counting these for next months stock take!!!!
And outside the boats go by – narrow boats and cruisers – it’s idyllic….
This is the first time I have worked in a retail environment and I love it – I have previously dealt with customer service but usually on the complaints side – we don’t get many complaints here!!!
And if you need any splicing doing – this is the guy to ask……
Rope and splicing expert!!!!
And on the left here is our Honda and Chandlery expert- she is amazing!!!
Which just leaves me – a people expert with computer skills!!!!
I am enjoying every minute!!!!
