Fox Glacier Guiding is one of New Zealand’s most experienced adventure tourism operators.  Since 1928 guides have enjoyed sharing the beauty of the Fox Glacier with visitors from around the world.

We are currently looking for people to join our team in August, September and October 2018.

This is an opportunity to live in a unique environment where glaciers, rainforest and the ocean meet, at the foot of New Zealand’s highest mountains.  South Westland provides plentiful opportunities for climbing, tramping, hunting, fishing, and kayaking.

If you love being outdoors, you are physically fit, you connect with people, and you can tell a good story, we would like to hear from you.

Working on the Fox Glacier will give you an opportunity to learn and develop guiding skills in a dynamic alpine environment accessed by helicopters. We provide professional training within the framework of the New Zealand Mountain Guides’ Association.

You need to have a current First Aid qualification (preferably PHEC), a full driver’s licence (Class 2 with a Passenger endorsement is an advantage), and be eligible to work in New Zealand.  We also require successful applicants to undergo pre-employment drug and alcohol testing.

Applications close Friday 22nd June 2018.
