Guides

Currently the Tasmanian Walking Company is NOT seeking further guides for the 1314 guiding season.

All interested applicants to send through enquiries for the 1415 guiding season by 30 June 2014

Guiding for the Tasmanian Walking Co is a unique opportunity to work in some of the most pristine wilderness locations in Tasmania and to meet a variety of people from all around the world. Guiding is a challenging job and requires high levels of responsibility and accountability. You must be able to work in an open, co-operative team manner with your fellow guide (s) and guests in order to achieve high levels of guest satisfaction.

Ideally you will have bush walking experience in Tasmania and Australia; a good knowledge of the National Park you intend to apply for; an ability to share your knowledge and provide interpretation about the area, the flora, fauna, history to individuals and groups of up to ten people; and hospitality experience including cooking, food preparation, presentation and service. A solid awareness of group management, safety and risk management is a major component of becoming a guide for the Tasmanian Walking Company.

All guides will need to be available to participate in our pre-season training program, which includes an induction day held at our head office and a practical training multi day program in late September.  Your participation in ongoing training is also required throughout the season.  Our communication and training is taken very seriously and we encourage participation and contributions from all members of the guiding team.
