A Ski Boat Driver qualification (SBD2) is the minimum requirement for a position on the team; however, the BWSW (UKCC) Level 2 coaching qualifications provide you with the perfect tools for the Waterski/Wakeboard Instructor job.

Spend your entire summer driving the best boats in the business, riding daily, and spreading your passion for the sport. You'll deliver safe, fun, and engaging Waterski/Wakeboard tuition. We expect our team to go above and beyond to create an unforgettable holiday experience for our guests.

Picture yourself on an idyllic sandy beach in the hot Greek sun or at the foot of the mountains in one of Croatia's most significant national parks; this would be your office! A season with Neilson allows you to work in unique locations overseas while dedicating your days to shredding on glassy water.

As a member of Neilson's ski team, you are the rock stars of the resort. Your role is to look after guests of all abilities out on the water, ranging from complete beginners to seasoned pros. Whether you're putting their skis on for the first time or teaching them their next invert on a wakeboard, every day brings a new reward.

In summary, spending the summer driving and coaching in breath-taking locations is an excellent aspect of the job, but working alongside like-minded, lifelong friends and making unforgettable memories together makes the summer extra special.

Ideally, we're looking for full-season staff from April to early November. We will consider candidates with shorter availability dates, but operationally, those with a combination of the best dates and qualifications will always take preference.

Working for Neilson is more than a job; it's a lifestyle. Spend the summer season based in one of our beautiful beach club resorts, where it's all about sharing your passion for the activities you love. You'll be working hard, but the work is fun, and there's always plenty of time to play.

We're looking for friendly, energetic, and approachable people who can build rapport with ease. Individuals who can instil confidence that every element of a Neilson holiday is delivered by a team who cares.
