On the waterways

Opportunities to work along the canals and rivers in your local area are continually updated on our careers pages. These include lock keepers, workshop operatives, leisure assistants and enforcement officers. These roles are usualy based outdoors, acting as a focal point and face of your local waterway.

Specialist skills

Maintaining our locks, our bridges and the canals themselves are key to our continued success and development, and specialist skills are often needed on a national and regional basis. We are always keen to hear from engineers, planners, surveyors and project managers who can bring experience from any sector to work on an impressive variety of projects.


Our office-based departments include marketing, procurement, HR, administration and finance. As we are based across England and Wales we offer a variety of opportunities at varying levels. We live and work by the same values as our colleagues who are based out on the waterways, making this a great place to be.
