For the next adventurer out there, this job offers you a great variety in your work and your island lifestyle. Sharing, learning and using a large range of skills and knowledge, sometimes in a true relaxed Cambodian way, other times in more challenging ways. Oh…and of course you get to live on a unique paradise Island with amazing people and explore wild new places!
This position requires a very energetic, caring and confident personality, willing to learn and train in activities and tour guidance plus much more! Someone willing to offer that extra special effort for our guests in the experiences we provide.
You will become a representative and a face of Adventure Adam and play a big part in connecting our guests with the local communities and culture, also becoming friends with many of them along the way. Helping and taking part in local community, school and charity events and fundraisers.
You will be working alongside our Khmer family and friends, helping to teach and grow with them as they have done with us since the start.
We want someone who can share our passion and who can interact and communicate information and sales to the tourists and travelers visiting our islands - introducing the many things that Koh Rong, the surrounding islands and Cambodia has to offer.
Your role encompasses everything from scuba diving, guiding, teaching, learning, hospitality, entertaining, exploring and so much more than this!

We offer you a unique opportunity with many options and avenues now and in the future, knowledge, training, skills and exploration in one of the most enjoyable jobs ever, in one of the most amazing places!

Good commissions based on sales of tours, activities, accommodations, party tickets and more. Plus many other job perks and island perks along the way!
