OLDER Instructor and DM looking for a job

Hello Potential Employers


If you want a young couple don't bother reading any further.  If you want a couple with experience of life and diving, and the ability to talk to anyone, then read on.  We should have been returning to Crete this year, and for the next 5-6 years, but our boss (and good friend) passed away suddenly last month.   He saw the potential of employing older, reliable people.  This, to us, isn't just a bit of fun for a year or two, but a career for the foreseeable future.  


Previously in England, we worked part time in the dive industry, and we have done 2 full seasons in Greece, so know we are fit enough to do the job.  Before becoming a full time instructor, Alan worked in heavy construction, so is used to handling lots of weight.  As an instructor, Alan is very patient, and has rarely failed to get a beginner under the water, and has a great success rate in up selling further try dives.  His record was one try dive converted into a further 6 try dives and an open water course later in the season (the beginner returned especially to learn with Alan!)  


Sarah speaks very good German, and is also good at up selling further try dives and courses, and is happy approaching potential customers lying on sunbeds.  Sarah is also highly skilled at admin, and will make sure no-one goes in the water without the correct paperwork in place.  She is also a trained bookkeeper, so great with figures and cash handling.  She's happy answering emails, and talking to potential customers, and chatting with anyone that walks past the dive centre.  She's also a great dive master. 


We both have full clean UK driving licences, and have been driving for a good number of years.  We have a left hand drive car, and both seasons drove to Greece to take up our employment.  Alan learnt to drive boats in the Army, and both Alan and Sarah have International power boat licences which we have held for over three years.  We also have Greek tax numbers.


All we're asking is for is an employer to take a chance on us.  You won't regret it. If you are interested please email Alan at

Thank you for taking the time to read this! 

Alan and Sarah
