Water Sports Employment
We offer water sports employment for anyone looking for a great sports job related to the sea. No previous employment in water sports is required but of course such a background is very useful. The most important ingredient for a career in water sports is a love for the ocean and the great activities related to it.
Our water sports centers are particularly interested in job applicants with previous employment experience as captains, assistant captains, beach boys, dive equipment room attendants and sailing or windsurfing teachers.
We also offer sports jobs through teaching skill development related to the educational dive sector. This is ideal for people with a physical education degree and/or a previous sports employment background interested in building a career in sport diving as guides or teachers. For this please consult our internship pages which offer the perfect start for such a choice.
Please to apply for any of the above and/or request more information send us a resume (C.V.) using the contact section, including two daily life pictures, one full person and one portrait.
