Blue Lagoon Divers is Hiring! 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.
Firstly, a little about diving in Symi, Greece.
Diving on the island hasn’t really been done since the days of the old sponge divers in brass suits, meaning to this day we are rediscovering new places to dive each year. Just last year we found 3 new sites to dive, including a lost WW2 German Eboat! Diving here really is one hell of an adventure.
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 ie. an EU citizen. The season starts in May/June and ends in late September/October.
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.
Our school is a small family run center with already 2 instructors.
We provide a competitive living wage + commission, cheap (subsidized) rent for staff accommodation and at least 1 meal a day whilst diving. Mostly breakfast or lunch. We also do a weekly staff meal/drinks to discuss work related topics at a local restaurant/bar/coffee shop 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. Prospective 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 near 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 a little 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).
Important: At the end of the training, once certified, we will add you to the staff to receive a standard wage in addition to the commission you are already earning and a valuable CV reference as having worked in Europe for a season.
All applicants, please send us an email with a cover letter and CV to email@example.com.
