Kite Instructor wanted for Zanzibar



This is an exciting opportunity for someone who wants to get a little bit more serious about working in kite surfing.

The school is being set up as we speak from an established beach location with over 40 rooms and plenty of ‘walk by’ business in Jambiani near Paje, Zanzibar.

The kite centre itself is being built as we speak, whilst we are also working on the website and everything else that needs to be done. The kite spot is ideal with only one other kite school nearby and plenty of space to learn in. The beach location for the school (Jambiani) is very close to another kite area known as Paje which is starting to get very busy now.

You will find our spot both quiet & chilled making for better kiting and learning. We will also be offering SUP, surf & kit rental.

The forthcoming kiting 2014/2015 seasons are predicted to run as follows:
Middle of June to Mid / End September.
Middle of December to Mid March / End March

About the role:

We need someone with not only teaching experience but with also maturity to be able to supervise the day-to-day running of the kite school and work with the owners in establishing this as a leading kite school right from the start. Ideally you will have excellent English & possibly other language skills such as Italian, French, German & Spanish.

We will be operating from an established beach front tourist property known as ‘Visitors Inn’, which has over 40 rooms and plenty of walk in / walk by business.

See: for more details about the property.
