Diving jobs – your dream career

If diving is your passion, what better way is there to spend your days than being paid to do something you love? With more known about Space than about the ocean, a diving job really could be the ultimate exploration experience.

Not only will you spend your days in the sun and underwater, but this could also be the chance to share your enthusiasm, experience and knowledge with others embarking on the same dream. With so many possibilities of developing new and specialist skills throughout your career, a diving job genuinely represents the chance of continual and enjoyable personal and professional development.

What will your diving job be?

A career in diving could be the perfect way for you to involve yourself in conservation and education in a more hands on and practical way than more conventional research activities.

There is far more to diving than pure recreation open to you, and you’ll find your diving job provides you with more knowledge, understanding and experience than you could ever have got otherwise, and as your knowledge and experience grow so too will your enthusiasm and commitment.

This could be the perfect foothold to enable you to explore a whole new part of the world, spending time overseas while contributing to a local economy, opening up a whole new world to you, one that you will never grow tired of and which most people will never be fortunate enough to be a part of.

Where will your diving job be?

With oceans, seas, lakes, rivers, quarries, caves and anywhere there is water within the realm of the diver, a diving job could take you anywhere you want to go. And in a world in which there is more water than land, you could never spend two days in the same place if you didn’t want to!

Your diving job could truly be your ticket to travel. With every coral reef home to a myriad of different species, every dive site is uniquely different, and exploring the oceans will be just as exciting on your first dive as in a decade’s time.

The tropical seas contain a wealth of biodiversity and some of the most critical ecosystems on the planet, as well as some of the most charismatic megafauna in the oceans. While presenting their own challenges, these regions of the world are some of the most exciting and breathtaking to dive.

Your diving job really could be your way of getting yourself to, and justifying staying in, a part of the world that you have always wanted to visit and truly experience.

Kick start your career with Frontier

Depending on your personal interests and background, your diving job could constitute virtually anything you want it to. Frontier offers positions on marine conservation and diving projects in Madagascar, Tanzania and Fiji, places recognised for their levels of biodiversity, stunningly beautiful coral reef systems and welcoming local communities.

You could work as a dive instructor or dive officer, teaching and training other divers and passing on your knowledge and experience about not just diving but the marine environment as a whole. Alternatively, your diving job could be more research-based, carrying out surveys or exploratory dives in threatened ecosystems or areas of conservation interest.

A diving job could be the perfect opportunity for you to combine your interests with travel and personal development, conservation, education and training. To discuss getting onboard with Frontier and any questions you might have then just get in touch!
