For 130 years, we’ve been committed to continuously improving what we do for our guests and the people we work with. As Provision Master, you’ll be responsible for the entire provision operation on board the vessel, including ordering, issuing, onboard inventory and financial reports. You will need to consider supplies on board the vessel for guests and crew.
The Provision Master is one of the most exciting positions onboard any Hurtigruten Expedition vessel, responsible for the entire provision operation on board. Being in charge for all hotel-related purchases, the Provision Master is also accountable for inventories on board the vessel. To ensure that all department needs are reflected in purchase requests placed by the Provision Master, close communication with all departments on board as well as the Purchasing department ashore is of great importance for this position.
As sustainable cruise operation is particularly important to Hurtigruten Expeditions, the Provision Master is also closely involved in ensuring that the assigned vessel is supplied with regional products that meet the company’s quality standards. On top of that, the Provision Master needs to keep a close eye on the financial impacts of purchase requests and inventories.
This role is a hands-on role and requires someone who wants to be involved in the operation of a Hurtigruten Expedition vessel. At times, fast, but nevertheless, well thought out decisions need to be made to ensure that guest satisfaction is the top priority.
