A Tour Guide License
Language skills: All of Dalahoo/HiPersia tours are operated in English so a good command of the English language is mandatory. The region specific language is also very important. This helps ensure we maintain excellent relations between the company, the people we meet and work with in the field and the travellers on our trips.
Excellent Leadership and Communication Skills: We look for people who have experience in leadership roles, with a proven ability to communicate effectively in a wide range of contexts.
Resourcefulness: We need leaders who have a good head on their shoulders, who can remain calm and collected under unpredictable and stressful circumstances. Our leaders need to be able to take decisive action to resolve problems as they arise.
Awareness of and Commitment to Sustainable Tourism: Our leaders need to be committed to environmentally and culturally responsible tourism, and be an inspiring example to the travelers.
Good Health and High Energy Level: It may seem obvious but we need leaders who can always handle the daily stresses, both mental and physical, of long and tiring days. Be it a 13-hour bus ride, a long day's trek with a difficult group of travellers, or an included rafting adventure, you need to be the friendly, happy, helpful face of Dalahoo/HiPersia.
First Aid/CPR Certification: CEOs must be prepared to act in case of emergency. Standard First Aid Certification and CPR are required at the start of a contract to ensure your ability to assist with injuries, illness, or emergency in remote locations.
Transportation to your training location: It is the CEO's responsibility to get him or herself to the starting point of the training trip.
Background in basic accounting/budgeting: Experience working with budgets or developing a personal budget is an asset. Computer literacy: A working knowledge of the Internet, E-mail, Microsoft Word, and Microsoft Excel is essential.
