“Work because you want to, not because you have to.”
If you want to spend a few unforgettable months on the ocean, meet new interesting people, become part of KoHoLa team and gain experience of working in a dynamic atmosphere of the surf camp, this could be your unique opportunity.
All members of Kohola team are committed to their work and we all wish to offer our guests a dream vacation where they will catch their first waves or improve their surfing skills on a fast and secure way and fall in love with this sport and the whole lifestyle that accompanies it. Beside surfing, there is always a possibility for relaxation in the surf house or to socialise with the rest of the surfers, as well as to get to know better the most interesting places in the area. Our desire is to perform all of this on a way to make our guests feel as if they never they want to leave back home.
Whether you are already surfing or you just want to try it for the first time, below you will find all of our open positions which are offered, so contact us if you see yourself as a part of the future Kohola team and if you think that this is ideal job for you.
Camp manager – We are looking for a responsible person who already has experience of working in the tourism. Camp manager should be a person who likes to work with people and who is committed, well organised, hard-working, patient and always full of positive energy which motivates others. If you become a surf camp manager, you will take care on your destination that all activities related to the maintenance of the surf camp are done on time and effectively, you will manage the rest of Kohola team and take care that everything in the surf house runs smoothly and that all the guests are happy and satisfied. During the 2016 season we need camp manager for a total of 5-6 months in the spring and autumn season (March to May, and October to December), with the possibility to be hired throughout the whole year during the next season.
