PADI SCUBA Instructor wanted for exciting dive business in Auckland!

Waiheke Dive & Snorkel is a new dive shop (opened December '17) located on the stunning island of Waiheke. Ranked in the top 10 places to visit in the world by Lonely Planet 2016 and just 35 mins from Auckland CBD by ferry, Waiheke Island has plenty to offer visitors and residents alike!

We are looking for a qualified PADI Instructor for a full time seasonal - running from the mid November until the end of March 2019, with potential for contract extensions depending on customer demand.

Our market is a mixture of tourism and NZ / Waiheke locals and your duties will range from Instructing / guiding, frontline retail in our brand new store, social media engagement and customer enquiries all the way down to washing the vans and gear. We’re proudly a small business with a local feel, so all of us (the boss included!) get hands on and stuck in with whatever needs to be done.

You may be conducting a DSD with someone visiting NZ in the morning and then snorkelling with a school group in the afternoon, or perhaps a private 1 to 1 open water course with a VIP Island guest so you will need to be adaptable and able to give 100% to every customer that you engage with.

We believe in engaging with our community, and are active in local sustainability and conservation projects and we regularly run dive against debris events. We are also a 100% AWARE partner store.

The ideal candidate will have great people skills, an infinite passion for our oceans (particularly in conserving them - if you’re all about hunting then we’re not the dive shop for you!) with the ability to receive and communicate important information effectively.

You must be an in-status PADI Instructor and hold a valid Certificate of Competence, Occupational Diver Medical Clearance, a full NZ driving licence and have the right to work in NZ. Weekend work is a requirement of this role. 

In return, we offer a fun and engaging workplace with a stunning office for you to enjoy every day and industry leading remuneration! Staff pricing on dive gear is very generous (we’re dealers for Scubapro and Mares) and there's plenty of adventures to be had!
