Want to work in some of the most beautiful places on Sydney Harbour, Middle Harbour and Pittwater?

Due to the growth and expansion of our business, we are currently seeking experienced detailers who:

  • have an exceptionally critical eye for detail

  • enjoy a positive team environment

The finer details of ‘Ship Shape Detailing’

Our work can be physically demanding, therefore best suited to a fit and active person. Most of our staff are very active outside of work and aged between 18 and 35.

We work outdoors in all kinds of weather conditions, servicing all brands and shapes of boats and vessels including sail and motor yachts.

A regular working day starts on-site at 7am and finishes between 3.30—5.30pm, Monday to Friday. During the annual Sydney International Boat Show (July/August) there is additional work due to demand. Some weekend work is also available.

Experience is essential. Award conditions are in place.


Duties of a Ship Shape Detailer


Some of the tasks we carry out include:

  • washing and drying superstructures and topsides (hulls) and interiors

  • stain removal and hand polishing of stainless steel

  • machine buffing and hand polishing of superstructures and topsides

  • cleaning and/or sealing teak decking surfaces, carpet and upholstery

  • detailing of interiors

  • cleaning engine rooms and bilges

Our goal is to always provide a '5 star' service to our clients.

Seeking experienced candidates for long-term positions, not ad-hoc or temporary work.

We are looking for experienced staff who want to develop a long-term relationship with us and our clients. Ship Shape Services has a complete set of detailing systems and procedures, which are taught to everyone who works with us. We will invest in your ongoing training and professional development.
