Work for us
Are you interested in working for us? Do you fancy an adventure of a lifetime or perhaps you're a professional guide. We're always on the lookout for the right people that can join the team.
We are currently looking for a Northern Lights guide. If you speak several languages, live in Tromsø and have a car (bus connections to the center and back is not ideal in the evenings), contact us! Send us a CV and a letter of motivation to firstname.lastname@example.org!
What to expect
Be prepared for long but rewarding days, rain or shine, sun or snow. We’re open 365 days a year and some days can get very busy, especially in winter. We pride ourselves on the professional service that our guests receive.
It’s not all work, we have a number of staff events throughout the year, most importantly is the Villmark race where we compete to find out who the fastest musher is.
Send us your cv/application with a description of why you think you’d be perfect for us.
Be sure to include:
- Any relevant previous experience including first aid training
- if you hold a driving license
- Any languages you speak; English is a must, Norwegian is desirable. German, French, Spanish or Italian is also of benefit
- Two character references
Work is typically very physical so it’s important you should have a good physical condition. We do have some accommodation on site (although space is limited) as well as some local contacts for places to help you. Obviously, it’s advantageous if you already live locally.
Send your application to email@example.com
Working in Norway
If you’re from an EU country (or hold an EU passport) it’s very straightforward to work in Norway, once you receive a job offer from us and a contract you’ll need to schedule an appointment with the UDI (immigration services). You’ll receive a confirmation letter stating you able to work in Norway, from here you’ll need to see Skatteetaten (the tax office) for a tax card for the year. You’ll need to bring the previous letter from UDI, your passport and the contract with us for both.
We can help you with any questions you might have during the process but it’s very straightforward.
If you’re from outside the EU it’s still possible to work with us, simply contact us and we’ll explain how it works.
