Dive jobs online

Updated: 5 Feb, 2018

There are a few resources out there to help the new Divemaster or instructor find work. Facebook groups, websites and so on.

This list should help you get an idea of what is available, and progress in your training (there are a lot of IDC and DMT posts among them). I have not included any private group or message boards, such as PADI’s and SSI’s, which are behind membership walls. Plus, as a PADI or SSI diver (for example), you should already be well aware of their services.

For the Facebook groups, please read their “about” section first! Some groups repost posts from other places, so new members have a bad habit of messaging the page admins who have nothing to do with the job, to apply for it.  Read the job posts carefully. Some require an email, some require an online form, others, a private message.

Descriptions are copied from their respective pages where possible.

Good luck!
