We are currently on the hunt for an unrestricted Coxswain to operate our dive and sightseeing vessel. In this role you will ensure that all divers are having a safe and enjoyable trip by operating in strict compliance with the vessel’s Safety Management System and our Work Health and Safety Manual. You are also required to perform the duties of a Dive Supervisor and Surface Watch and must be suitably trained and experienced to do so (refer below). Our trips run on the Gold Coast ex Runaway Bay Marina. Apart from scuba diving, we also conduct whale watching trips and South Stradbroke Island tours with non-diving customers.

What do you need to bring?

– Be a friendly and healthy person with a professional attitude,
– Be great with customers
– Be a qualified Coxswain (unrestricted) or higher,
– Be at least a PADI Rescue Diver or willing to take the course with us,
– Possess a Drivers License,
– Possess current Oxygen Provider Certificate,
– Possess current First Aid and CPR Certificate,
– Have knowledge of local waters and conditions
– Be available Thursday to Sunday and on public holidays

Note: if you have no diving background, then we still like to hear from you as you might be still suitable for our whale watching and South Straddie tours.

Whats on offer

In return you will become part of the extended Gold Coast Dive Adventures family and get paid a competitive flat rate per boat trip above the local average. We have an excellent operational system in place that is easy to follow.

This job is a causal part-time role on contract basis for only a few days per week to start with to relief our current skipper. There will be full support including internal training and mentoring throughout the process.

Our vessel

Our current boat is a 6m Airib and beautifully set up for diving. It is fast and easy to handle. We are currently looking into a larger vessel and may soon upgrade to 10-12m boat.

How to apply

If that is of interest then please drop us a line to matt@goldcoastdiveadventures.com.au with a short introduction about yourself.

We hope to hear from you soon.
