Sailing Instructor - Auckland New Zealand

French Bay Yacht Club - Auckland, New Zealand

Sailing Instructor needed - Auckland New Zealand (4 + 4 months - Oct 18 to Jan 19 + Feb 19 to May 19)

French Bay Yacht Club in Titirangi on the Manukau harbour on the south western outskirts of Auckland are seeking a part time qualified and experienced sailing instructor. The commitment required is mainly on weekends of 4-6 hours per Sat & Sun, to instruct from Learn to Sail to Intermediate, using YNZ course resources, in Optimists, Topaz’s, and Laser type dinghies.

Attached is a draft of the instructing schedule for the first half of the season (Oct to Jan) with approximately 30 plus instructing events. We are ideally looking for an instructor to take us from October through to the end of May as a similar program will need to be delivered from Feb to May; however, we will accept interest for just the separate halves from suitable applicants

This would suit an experienced instructor, between 20 and 30 years old, that can build good rapport with sailors (children from 10 years and adult of all ages), enthusiastic, resilient and resourceful, and keen to instruct in a fun small Club environment. You will need to be eligible and prepared to obtain a NZ working holiday visa.

You will be remunerated for the time you instruct, and be supported by Club youth assistant instructors or senior Club member sailors when necessary.

The Club is within 45 minutes by public transport to Auckland CBD). Club members will offer local support, other Sailing club introductions, and guidance in either seeing NZ or finding weekday employment or other weekend instructing opportunities during your stay in Auckland.

We would prefer the successful incumbent to find their own accommodation but can assist with this if necessary.
