An inspiring environment
Blue Lagoon is a workplace like no other. We provide you with opportunities to grow in your career, improve your competencies through training, and nurture your talents in an environment that enhances your wellbeing.
Diversity and progression
Blue Lagoon offers a wide range of jobs and is one of the most diversified workplaces in Iceland. This diversity can be attributed to our extensive operations in a variety of different but interconnected fields. Many of our employees progress within the company and eventually change positions or departments as their education and interests evolve.
The Blue Lagoon
The Blue Lagoon – the body of water ranked by National Geographic as one of 25 wonders of the world – is the historic centerpiece of our operations. The lagoon’s ongoing success is dependent upon the professionalism of our staff and the service roles that they perform: security, cleaning, clerical, and many more. Professional actors even mingle with Blue Lagoon visitors to enhance their experience.
Retreat Hotel and Spa
With a subterranean spa and a luxurious 62-suite hotel encircled by the Blue Lagoon’s mineral-rich waters, the Retreat is a place where guests can leave the world behind and enter a timeless realm of relaxation, rejuvenation, and exploration. Our staff provides high-quality services and assists guests in maximizing their Retreat experience.
Our line of skin care is formulated from the active ingredients found in the lagoon’s geothermal seawater. Environmentally-friendly, sustainable manufacturing methods are the hallmark of our products. Supported by strong development and marketing efforts, we have shops in Reykjavík, Keflavík Airport, at Blue Lagoon, and online.
Blue Lagoon’s office section is the workplace of experts in the fields of sales, marketing, policymaking, accounting, human resources, and information technology. Teamwork is our guiding principle – the goal being to provide support to the front line and Blue Lagoon’s individual business units.
Research and development
Scientists at our research center have pioneered innovative methods for harvesting and cultivating the treasures of the Blue Lagoon’s geothermal environment. These discoveries have led to a number of patents and a wealth of knowledge in the fields of biotechnology, dermatology, and marine cosmetology.
Building and equipment maintenance is handled by our extensive staff of carpenters, electricians, plumbers, machinists, masons, and painters.
Silica Hotel is just a 10-minute walk from the Blue Lagoon. With 35 rooms, inspiring architecture, and a beautiful private lagoon, the hotel is a destination unto itself.
Food and Beverage
Blue Lagoon operates three of Iceland’s most prestigious dining establishments. Fantastic chefs and talented waiters play a key role in creating world-class culinary experiences. In addition to these restaurants, refreshments are also offered at a number of other onsite locations – including in the lagoon.
The Blue Lagoon Equal Pay Policy
The Blue Lagoon’s Equal Pay Policy is an integral part of the company’s remuneration policy. The company strives to ensure gender equality and for all employees to be judged on their own merits, irrespective of gender, race or other groundless criteria, so that there are no unjustified wage differences in the workplace. The purpose of the Equal Pay Policy is to ensure full equality between the genders so that men and women receive equal pay for equal work or work of equal value.
The Blue Lagoon operates according to an equal pay system that applies to all employees. The Executive Board is responsible for implementing and reviewing the Equal Pay Policy and its compliance with the Act on Equal Status and Equal Rights of Women and Men No. 10/2008.
The Blue Lagoon undertakes to:
- Continually improve HR practices to ensure the equal status of all company employees.
- Receive suggestions and complaints and use them to develop and improve the Blue Lagoon’s human resources management and equal pay criteria.
- Conduct an annual wage analysis to see whether there are measureable gender-based differences between wages for equal work or work of equal value.
- Respond to unexplained wage differences with continued improvements and monitoring.
- Conduct an annual internal audit and management review.
- Introduce the policy to Blue Lagoon employees.
- Make sure that the policy is accessible at the Blue Lagoon’s website.
