Careers at Franz Josef Glacier Guides

We’re a team from all over the world, speaking several languages, each with our own stories to tell, brought together by our love of sharing world class hospitality and cultural story telling in the stunning village of Franz Josef Glacier.

We’re courageous, challengers of the status quo, quirky, curious, and playful. We tackle challenges head on, share successes, and nurture each other to be the best possible versions of ourselves.

We love the remoteness, being part of a community of likeminded people, and exploring the outdoors. We like sharing our home with tens of thousands of visitors from around the world each year.

We’re guides, mountaineers, hosts, story tellers, high achievers, salespeople, custodians, customer carers, and administrators. We are makers of things and doers of stuff. We’re musicians, motorcyclists, skiers, snowboarders, artists, athletes, photographers, adventure seekers and much more. We have an active role in the community, with Iwi, Department of Conservation, and other forms of outreach. 

When we’re not at work we’re at one another’s homes, with our friends from around town, out taking photographs, swimming, skiing, hiking, cycling, going on 4WD or dirt bike adventures, camping or bunking down around the fire with wine in hand. When it’s time to get out of the village it’s a short trip to Hokitika, Greymouth, Westport, Haast, Wānaka, and Queenstown.

If you’d like to join us in changing peoples’ lives through the enriching experiences we deliver every day, we’d love to hear from you.
