Careers at The Waterman & No. 30

The Waterman is a modern-day meeting place and contemporary inn. Open all day and just a short stroll across the beautiful Midsummer Common from central Cambridge, we like to think we’ve got it all covered; from craft beer to an eclectic range of wines and spirits, fresh flavour driven food, open fires, a garden, our very own little coffee shop (No.30), and even a bed for the night!

With creative mastermind Jessie at the helm, we also boast a calendar packed full of regular events. This brings with it a lot of fun and variety for our teams, who might find themselves manning the ‘Potting Shed’ bar during one of our Outdoor Cinema nights, serving up an epic BBQ to the masses at one of our pub parties or sporting events, or even hosting our bumper monthly Sunday night quiz!

If you’re more of a morning person, then our neighbouring coffee shop No.30 could provide the perfect work/life balance you’ve been looking for. This little coffee crazed enclave welcomes our hotel guests every morning and invites in passing trade for their daily caffeine fix, breakfast and plenty of smiles!

So, if you fancy joining a passionate, creative, characterful, and occasionally unhinged bunch, then we’d love to hear from you, so drop us a line!


Due to the unprecedented global pandemic surrounding Covid-19, we have needed to take the unfortunate decision to pause all recruitment until further notice. We are absolutely determined to bounce back stronger and better than ever, so please register you’re interest here to be the first to learn about our roles when we begin recruiting once more.
