This coming season is hopefully going to be a better one, with less Covid and the anxiety that goes along with traveling during the pandemic. We’re optimistic for the coming year and would like to take on a few chilled dive professionals and novices to join our crew. So if you have a passion for diving and would like to live on our idyllic little paradise in the Aegean. This might be the opportunity you’ve been looking for.
What we looking for:
We have 2 positions available: Fluent English is a must, as is the ability to legally live and work in Greece. The season starts in April and ends in late September.
We are looking for a hardworking Dive Instructor with a relaxed personality, but a strict follower of the PADI standards set out for dive professionals. Safety will always be our priority at BLD. Having said that, we also want someone we can chill with after a long day diving with a cold beer.
We currently have 2 full time instructors and a part timer already on staff. You would be joining an already established team, so being able to take advice about dive sites and the best places to run your courses is a must.
We provide a competitive living wage + commission, cheap (subsidized) rent for shared staff accommodation and at least 1 meal a day. Mostly breakfast or lunch. We also do a weekly staff meal to discuss work related topics at a local restaurant which is on us.
You will also be given a national insurance paid by the dive center, which contributes to your Greek pension and health care.
We are also looking for 2x DiveMaster trainees to take part in our seasonal internship over the duration of the summer months. Perspective applicants must be at least familiar with diving and be confident to take up the challenge of being a dive professional.
Whilst this is undoubtedly the best career in the world, being a professional diver comes with its own risks, long days and a need for a level of professionalism with our fellow divers. Interns will be given free shared accommodation above the dive center, and commission whilst in training. We cover the costs of all Dives through the season, equipment use, PADI materials and courses. We have no minimum requirements of dives or qualification level, but experience in diving is a must so that you know if you enjoy it or not.
PADI’s DiveMaster application fee is not included and neither is your yearly membership fee. For more information, check out this link. https://bluelagoondives.com/become-a-pro/
This is your opportunity to move abroad, spend every day at the beach and gain real world experience in Diving (a job that will take you all around the world).
All applicants, please send us an email with a cover letter and CV to firstname.lastname@example.org.
