Surf Maroc are looking for a energetic, enthusiastic and hardworking individual with a relevant skills set to join a a growing brand with lots of opportunities to be based in a rapidly developing world class surfing destination.
Ideal applicant will be dynamic and resourceful and will bring with them a host of ideas for furthering the brands scope and not just be looking for a 9 to 5 with set tasks. First and foremost this job is suited to those who appreciate the balance between lifestyle and work. This position affords you the luxury of living and surfing in a great place, but you wont become a millionaire. We have a great team here and we have fun but everyone understands that we are here to work hard at providing holidays not to be on holiday and that there are some long days, but the reward of a great lifestyle makes it worth it. Taking on this role is a lifestyle choice. That said the photographer/ media position is one that can be more financially rewarding than other roles but putting the time in is essential.
The commission/profit you make will depend on the hours you put in and it isn’t always as glamourous as some might wish. The majority of sales will come from selling to beginners and that means evenings spent selling. Getting good beginners shots means standing at a beach taking photos of close outs. That said you don’t have to be there all day. 2 – 3 hours shooting from 9am is the norm. Its a sociable position which relies on you introducing yourself to guests and being approachable and friendly.
No tyre kickers of those wanting to come on a surf trip need apply. We are a hard working team here with a strong passion for what we do. This is a fantastic opportunity for a graduate in media or someone with a desire to work in the surf industry and in and around of epic surf .
A normal week will see average sales of 8- 10 cds a week and 20+on a good week. We charge 250dh (approx £20) per cd which include lots of shots of the guest plus a few lifestyle/ scenic shots.
