Join the Aquila Crew

the 3 cropped1Our business growth means opportunity for talented team players.

Although our team has grown largely by referral through tourism industry contacts, we are always interested in hearing from hard-working and fun-loving individuals who have a vision for melding their personal and professional goals with our company’s objectives. Although education and experience are assets, Aquila also hires for attitude and drive – so be creative!

 

Seasonal Team Members

Aquila’s growth also means that we often require new team members to fill an increasing number of seasonal positions each year, including

  • Tour Guides
  • Pier-Side Team Members

Tour Guides

Each winter, we assess our need for tour guides for the coming season. If you are interested in one of these positions, please send an e-mail to Sam indicating why you would like to be a tour guide and what skills you have that lend themselves to this position. This is casual employment, ideal for retired professionals, and requires a flexible schedule from May to October, excellent communication skills, and a love of people. And while not necessary, fluency in languages other than English is always an asset! Since starting to host ships from TUI, AIDA and MSC, we are now seeing demands for German, Itlaian, Portuguese and French-speaking guides and translators.

Pier-Side Team Members

With our growing cruise business, Aquila is seeking individuals to work with our pier-side team on cruise ship days. Roles pier-side can vary, and include managing transportation, dispatching tours, communicating with guides, providing information to guests, and handling pier-side tour sales. These positions are part-time, working cruise ship days from May to October. If you are interested in one of these positions, please contact Sam.

What a PERFECT day in Saint Johns. Fabulous weather and a wonderful tour - The Ten Best of Saint John's. Our tour guide, Kelly Anne was the BEST - so knowledgeable and a wonderful story teller. An array of props, hats, pictures etc., used by Kelly Anne, truly enhanced the entire experience.
