  • Minimum 1 year experience as Marine Biologist in a dive centre or resort environment
  • PADI OWSI or higher
  • Minimum 1 year experience with coral propagation/restoration
  • Marine Biology BSc or higher
  • No excessive tattoos or piercings
  • Excellent grooming standards
  • Team player
  • Fluent English, plus at least one other language (preference given to German, Portuguese, French or Russian)
  • Previous experience in the Maldives is a plus, as is sales or customer service experience

What We Offer:

  • Work Permit and return flight ticket
  • Minimum 1 year contract with ongoing opportunities within the company
  • A close team and friendly working environment
  • Twin share A/C accommodation
  • 2 meals per week in guest restaurant, plus bar and spa discounts
  • Great staff area, including bar, café, gym and games room
  • Extremely competitive salary, commissions and service charge
  • 1 month paid leave, plus public holidays
