The work opportunity we currently have available:
We currently have numerous positions available for the upcoming season August 2019- May 2020. Are you the one we are looking for?We are looking for highly motivated, enthusiastic individuals to be guides for our dogsledding trips, and require help with our transfers to and from our kennel. We have 3 different trips a day. You must be a confident driver, experience driving minibus (8 seaters) is a definite merit!
Other traits that we are looking for in a person:
- enthusiastic and postive
- passionate about dogs and their care
- not afraid to work long hours
- initiative takers
- familiar with the tourist industry and seasonal work
- flexible (things change all the time!!!)
- social and not afraid to talk to guests
- able to cope with basic living standards
- willing to live in the forest without much social interaction
All our guests are picked up from Kiruna, and thus you must have driving experience. We encourage individuals to apply that have previously worked within tourism, as this would be a definite plus. We are looking for guides who will be working with our day trips, overnight and weekend trips and could help out with dressing guests as well as transfers. Outdoor experience is a benefit but not an absolute must. Having worked with animals is also a preference but again not essential.
The first month is very intensive, learning the names of the dogs, learning how to take care of them, learning how to run them correctly, learning the trails etc.
We offer an amazing experience that most people never get the chance to have. Working with dogs is incredibly rewarding and satisfying. Its wonderful to be outdoors surrounded by nature and the wilderness. But don’t be fooled! Its a seasonal job with not many days off. The work requires intense dedication!! The dogs require intense care and affection. Its very hard work and not for people that are thinking of a holiday or are dreamers!
If you are not intimidated by the above and feel this is a life style opportunity for you and you are able to be a valuable member to our family please send us an email!
Please note. We DO NOT accept applicants that are SMOKERS or have their own dogs!
