Join our team

Waiheke Dive & Snorkel is an award winning business located on stunning Waiheke Island, and we are often looking for new team members to join us!

Our clients are a mixture of Kiwis from all over NZ, Waiheke locals, and we're stoked to be welcoming back international visitors!

We believe in engaging with our community, and are active in local sustainability and conservation projects. We’re proudly a small business, with a small team and a local feel, so all of us get hands on and stuck in with whatever needs to be done. 

If this sounds like your kind of dive shop, then why not take a look at the opportunities available below?


Casual PADI SCUBA Instructors

We have vacancies for casual PADI Instructors.

The role is purely casual, with work offered with no obligation - you can work as much or as little as suits you. 

We are busiest at weekends and through school holidays, but welcome applicants with a variety of availabilities. 

As an Instructor then you may be conducting a DSD with clients visiting Waiheke 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 guest with an international profile.

About you

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 will need to be adaptable and able to give 100% to every customer that you engage with.

We're a busy company, so you do need to be able to thrive under pressure and operate independently while maintaining our high standards of customer service and safety first approach to activities. 

You must be / hold;

  • an in-status PADI Instructor
  • Hold a relevant and valid Certificate of Competence for occupational diving (C.O.C)
  • Have an Occupational Diver Medical Clearance 
  • a full clear NZ driving licence 
  • have the right to work in NZ, and already be in country
  • a clear police record

In return, we offer a fun and engaging workplace with a stunning office for you to enjoy, awesome perks and fair remuneration. 

Staff pricing on dive gear is very generous (we’re dealers for Scubapro, Mares, Shearwater and so much more) and there's plenty of other adventures to be had! 

Please send your C.V. and covering letter to

Important - Applicants that are not in country, do not hold a valid working visa or do not hold a C.O.C will be automatically rejected.
