Required Education, Skills and Qualifications

  • At least 1 year of experience guiding, preferably in Dublin, and preferably doing walking tours.
  • At least a Bachelor of Arts, preferably in one of the degrees that complements tour guiding.
  • Significant study of history/sociology/tourism books that develop an appreciation of one’s content, context, country, culture as well as those of their client - the tourist.
  • Can demonstrate that you can deliver tours to a very high standard through testimonials: TripAdvisor, direct feedback from customers, companies’ references etc.
  • Great knowledge of Dublin, Irish culture and history.
  • Excellent communication skills.
  • Emotional maturity, e.g. ability to remain calm and collected when dealing with difficult guests

WHAT WE OFFER :

  • A nurturing environment- Our philosophy is to facilitate a positive symbiotic environment where everyone can share and thrive. Each guide shares books, articles and knowledge with the group on a casual basis. The company endeavours to make each guide’s experience with the company, and with the clients, as pleasant and satisfactory as possible. Our mission is to give you complete job fulfilment.
  • Training- Complementary tour guide training to enable you to advance from the standard/common level of training. We will facilitate your development in order to deliver tours to a very high standard, consistently.
  • High guiding fees- Compensation in the form of a percentage of the tour revenue rather than a small flat fee, like what most companies offer. This means that when the company thrives, the guide thrives.
  • Convenience and Flexibility- as a self-employed freelance tour guide, you decide which tours you’d like to do. Tours are normally booked 2-8 months in advance which is perfect for planning your own schedule. We all work from a shared Google calendar, where you can see each tour and claim whichever one suits. Claiming tours couldn’t be easier.
Please send a cover letter and CV to bookings@dublintourguide.ie if you want to apply for the position.
