We are looking for experienced Hosts/Kayak Guides to join our Discovery Centre Team in Milford Sound.

  • Preference will be given to individuals with current first aid, and at least 1 year of kayaking experience (especially with leading groups), public speaking experience and knowledge (and love) of underwater.
  • We need someone who is able to think on their feet and problem solve under pressure. The successful candidate must be able to work in a team but also be productive unsupervised.
  • For this role the work is 10 days on and 4 days off. We provide subsidised accommodation and a well stocked staff kitchen.
  • If you have worked in a small but supportive environment, enjoy the outdoors, are not addicted to social media and have experience in hospitality then this a great opportunity.
  • You must also have the right to work in New Zealand, with excellent spoken English, a strong work ethic, and a commitment to Health & Safety.

The role is all about ensuring our Milford Sound guests have an outstanding experience.  We have a lot of fun, but we also work very hard, keeping our vessels clean, safe and welcoming at all times.

In return you will receive full training, uniform, your own room in subsidised accommodation, and access to a fully stocked communal kitchen. We work a roster of 10 days on and 4 days off (no evening work required), to give you the opportunity to explore this stunning region.
