Hello. We are expanding our team for summer activities and are looking for Assistant Guide for our kayaking and SUP activities based on islands in the Zadar archipelago.
Assistant Adventure Guide supports Adventure Guide with all itinerary activities. He/she will support the logistics, keep the gear in check, help with transfers, and co-lead the trips. You will take ownership of elements of the adventure journey, like demonstrating kayaking/SUP techniques, leading hiking trips, liaison with suppliers. You will contribute and lead conversations to reveal the hidden secrets of our area and serve as the advocate of Malik Adventure's eco-friendly way of traveling (and living). It is a seasonal position.
- Become a certified sea kayaker and SUP paddler. Learn how to plan and execute expeditions and trips and read nature and get trained for your ACA or Canoeing Ireland certificate on the way.
- Spend days immersed in nature using your body every day (well, there are rest days, too).
- Help people. Pass on knowledge about the ancient sport of kayaking, stand up paddleboarding, the nature, and history of our home turf, and enable people to move their limits in a safe environment. (we'll train you on this, don't worry)
- Lead and be responsible for groups of like-minded adventurers. By this, we mean university professors, lawyers, historians, media people, doctors, bricklayers, and police officers who are fit and sometimes progressive outdoor athletes.
YOU MIGHT BE THE RIGHT FIT FOR THE POSITION IF:
# You have a valid first-aid certificate.
# You have a driver's license. You feel comfortable driving a van on narrow island roads.
# You have a high affinity for the outdoors. That means you already do some outdoor activities and you're fit. No need for triathlon scores, but a 6-hour activity day should be your thing. We will make you a highly competent paddler, but we need to build on something.
# You are motivated and driven. You volunteer for new challenges without waiting to be asked. You take ownership of the time spent with us to make a difference.
# Your communication skills (in English, obviously) are first-string. You will be talking to a lot of fascinating people from around the world. It would be a shame not to contribute to such conversations.
# You are independent and responsible. You love taking ownership of projects and making sure everything flows smoothly. You don't get flustered easily. If you don't know the answer, you dig until you find it.
# You are a practical person. Gear is our friend, and you need to take care of your friends. Nothing major but patching up a bike tire, making sure all equipment is in place and small things like this.
# You think on your feet. You like learning new things, and you can learn quickly.
To land this gig, you need to have some experience working with people (kids work experience is particularly valuable). It doesn't need to be a fancy title. Internship, volunteer work, and side projects count. Just make sure we can see where you picked up your people-leading superpowers in your cover letter or resume.
To apply, please send your CV and cover letter to email@example.com
