Southern Discoveries are looking for Boat Hosts to join our Milford Sound cruise team. These are fixed term summer season positions.
What do we need from you?
- Maturity, the ability to work calmly under pressure, and to think on your feet
- Team spirit, with the ability to build relationships with your workmates in a communal living environment
- Fantastic customer service focus
- Excellent English language skills
- Energy and Resilience
- Not afraid to get your hands dirty, and a boat clean!
- Fluency in Mandarin, Korean, or Japanese to provide commentary and assistance to our overseas guests
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.
Ideally you will have marine experience, perhaps with a Deckhand qualification (or similar), but if not, we will still consider you if you have a great attitude, a really strong work ethic, customer service experience, and can show us that you understand the importance of safety in the marine environment.
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.
If you are successfully shortlisted you will be invited to Milford Sound for an inteview and overnight stay to see if remote living is for you.
