Mō tātou, ā, mō kā uri ā muri ake nei  — for us and our children after us

Kia ora! Want to work for Ngāi Tahu Tourism, one of the largest tourism operators in Aotearoa?

We Take great pride in warmly welcoming manuhiri(visitors) to our experiences. Manaakitanga (hospitality) is one of our core values that drives the way we do business.  As hosts, we care for our customers and our team as our own whānau.

We are on the lookout for an enthusiastic hardworking customer service focused individual to join our business as a Funyak Guide for our busy summer season.

We offer not only a unique experience for visitors, but also an awesome place to work.

As a Funyak Guide, you will safely lead a group of up to 8 people of various ages, ethnicity and cultural backgrounds down a braided river system in varying weather conditions whilst informing our customers of the local flora, fauna and history.

A little bit about you

We’re after someone who:

– Full clean drivers licence.
– Safety focused and a responsible decision maker that can keep focused under pressure.
– Customer service focused that takes pride in giving our customers an amazing experience.
– Effective communicator in a team and can also work independently.
– Passionate about the outdoors and takes pride in looking after our environment.
– Open minded to learning about Ngāi Tahu culture and stories.
– Flexible with working weekends and public hours.
– Physically fit and mentally alert.

If you Grade 2 or higher rafting qualifications or have completed a swift water rescue course in the last three years, are multi-lingual and have a current Passenger Endorsement and/or Class 2 Drivers licence would be advantageous.

There’s more to being a Funyak Guide than paddling around, so we provide full training to ensure you can deliver safe and exciting trips.

A full, clean driver licence with Class 2 and Passenger endorsements would be ideal. If you have taken part in a River Rescue course in the last three years, that would also be an advantage.
