Coral Passion is looking for a new team member – Saturday crew, 9am to 4pm. 

There will be several weeks of training taking place on a Saturday starting at 9am for a few hours each shift, to ensure you like working at the business and to assess your suitability and capability.

The company has a vision to grow, make money and expertly care for all animals whilst providing great customer service. Our goal is to be the best marine livestock retailer in Europe.

You must love marine livestock and have a passion for the hobby that is reef-keeping.

This particular position will require a proven marine aquarist with good interpersonal skills and a strong knowledge of running reef-systems either commercially or home aquariums. You must be happy to impart high quality advice to hobbyists of all levels, from beginners to seasoned veterans.

Customers are king at Coral Passion and, the customer experience should always be positive wherever possible – and you will exude this ethos.

Working at Coral Passion:

  • Brisk productive work, working intelligently with our end goals always in mind
  • Taking expert care of all animals
  • A knowledge of various equipment used and be able to advise customers on prospective purchases
  • Cleaning algae from tanks
  • General tidying up and making sure the shop looks neat and presentable
  • A thirst to be better and positively react to feedback, having a willingness to improve
  • Various other duties as required to advance the business
  • Possess a ‘can do’ attitude and a natural drive to be busy, with an ability to foresee and prioritise your tasks for that day
  • Experience with reef-aquariums is essential. You must have a solid grasp of water chemistry, caring for fish, corals and inverts and the various equipment used and thoroughly understand reef keeping principals.
  • Must be happy to make tea and coffee. 


During the training period on Saturdays, remuneration will be slightly above minimum wage.

There may also be an opportunity to service some of our aquarium maintenance contracts that we hold; these are typically in offices or in luxury homes throughout Essex and London. A willingness to travel within these regions in your own vehicle would be advantageous. Fuel allowance and payments for this to be discussed.

25% staff discount is available on most products where possible (note this can’t always be done particularly on electrical goods). Staff discount is only available after 6 calendar months of service.
