Ko Lipe Diving, a SSI Diamond Dive Center on the island of Ko Lipe, Thailand, is looking for a dive manager responsible for the day-to-day running of our dive center starting from September 2019. Long-term contract 3 years with work permit and all legal documents will be provided.
Languages: We expect that you can communicate effectively in English. This means, you are comfortable speaking to customers and teaching in English. We want you to be able to teach in another language, preferably French, Spanish Swedish or German. More languages will be a big plus.
At least 5 years experience working in a dive center, with at least 2 year experience in a management position – best if it has been in Thailand!
People who enjoy working in a busy, energetic dive center with lots of interaction.
Ability to manage an international team of up to 20 staff members. By manage, we mean that while we expect you to delegate responsibilities as appropriate, we also expect you to lead by example.
Ability to motivate your team, provide performance feedback when necessary, hold meetings to make sure that concerns and issues are dealt with openly and as fairly as possible. Highest levels of professionalism always – at the dive center, on the dive boat, underwater.
Thorough knowledge of, respect and adherence to ALL standards (SSI, PADI, …).
Ability to prioritize the needs of the business along with a certain level of maturity. We want people who are serious about their work but can also bring a fun and friendly attitude to our customers.
People who are organized, clean, efficient and punctual. We run a very busy operation here which requires a high level of organization in order to run smoothly.
You must have a lot of energy as the days can be long here, and days off will depend entirely on how busy we are, which varies throughout the season.
Equipment maintenance skills are a plus but we can give training as needed.
Please note, you will not be diving every day in this position. There will be days where you may be needed to guide or teach, but your primary role is management.
This is a great opportunity for the right person to advance their diving career in paradise!
If interested in this position and feel that you meet our criteria, email your full CVs (please include non-diving employment), recent photos and a cover letter to Eric at firstname.lastname@example.org
