Bli kjent med Hurtigruten Norge

With our 130 years of experience along the Norwegian coast, we have connected coastal communities and given our guests an authentic experience whether they sail short or far, from port to port or full round trip. At the same time, we have transported important cargo between ports. Our original coastal voyage is known worldwide as "the world's most beautiful coastal voyage", combining beautiful scenery and authentic culture with delicious food experiences. In addition, we have our beautiful ship, MS Trollfjord, which sails to Svalbard in the summer and North Cape in the winter.

Now, Hurtigruten Norway are ready to increase the number of commercial ships on this iconic voyage. MS Otto Sverdrup sails from Hamburg to Norwegian destinations with primarily German guests, where we want new colleagues who can communicate in German.

We are now looking for people for all our ships where we want you who are passionate about service and love to offer good guest experiences. Do you want to join the journey and show our guests our home?

As a global leader in adventure travel, Hurtigruten strives to optimize hotel operations on board to give our guests the best experience. We are continuously working on the further development and implementation of new concepts that will create even better experiences for our guests. We work to further develop our employees so that together we can provide world-class service and quality.

Working on ships is a way of life and you will get a unique chance to become part of a working environment with passion and determination to succeed. Rotation work also gives you longer periods of time off with opportunities to travel or other things you are passionate about.

Do you recognize yourself in our values: We Inspire, We Empower, We Care, We Explore?
