How did you come to work at the Anderton Boat Lift and what do you do there? My background was in public transport having worked in the bus industry for many years before cutbacks forced the Charitable Community Transport Company I worked for to close. I was told that the Anderton Boat Lift needed seasonal staff so I applied for a Lift Operators position. When I went along for the interview, I had never been to the boat lift before but was instantly amazed by it. I live 20 miles from the lift and wondered why I had never taken the time to visit it sooner. Now I am part of the management team here, I have the pleasure of telling people what we have here on site and how amazing the boat lift actually is.
What would a typical day at work involve?
Simply a fantastic place to work
