The Position: Bicycle & Multisport Adventure Tour Guide

Black Sheep Adventures is hiring! We are a small, but growing, adventure tour company based in Berkeley operating tours mostly in California and other US destinations. We specialize in creating custom multi-day vacations for small groups with a mix of bicycling, hiking, kayaking and sightseeing. For additional information about what we do and where we go, please visit our website at http://www.blacksheepadventures.com

Job Description: We are looking for fun, talented and professional people to help lead our tours for the 2013 season which runs now until November. Given our variable tour load, this is a part-time guiding job. We are looking for folks who can guide anywhere from 1-2 weeks per season to 1-2 weeks per month all season long.

Basic Requirements:

  • Must be at least 21 years old
  • Must have physical ability to lift 80 lbs and to lift a 35 lb bike overhead
  • Must have an excellent driving record with NO history of DUI
  • Must be willing and able to obtain a Commercial Driver’s License upon hire (requires DMV physical, a pre-employment drug test and enrollment in ongoing random drug testing program)
  • If not already certified, must obtain First Aid/CPR certification upon hire

 Necessary Skills/Qualifications:

  • Knowledge of bike mechanics (we can help expand skills here if needed)
  • Ability to bike 50+ miles with 5,000 ft of climbing each day on consecutive days (but most days are 20-30 miles and normally guides trade-off days biking and driving)
  • Ability to hike 8+ miles with 3,000 ft of climbing (but most hikes are less)
  • Basic cooking skills (to make beautiful picnics for guests)
  • Basic computer skills (primarily to email reports and create trip videos)
  • Excellent time management (to manage time well for a group of people with a range of interests and possible last minute changes to the schedule)
  • Incredible sense of direction (essential skill for guiding)
  • Previous bicycle tour guiding experience is a plus, but not a requirement
  • Residency in the San Francisco Bay Area is vastly preferred (it will be really hard for us to consider candidates that don’t live here)

 Personality Traits:

  • Innate passion to deliver excellent service (our guests can sometimes expect a lot and we always try to exceed their expectations)
  • Attention to detail (need to appreciate the small details while keeping in mind the big picture)
  • Ability to think on your feet (Plan A can be quickly derailed, how do you do with plan B through Z?)
  • Outgoing personality & appreciation of people from a variety of backgrounds (our guests can have very different backgrounds and motivations from each other and you)
  • Professional and ethical behavior (guides have a lot of responsibility and are expected to conduct themselves in a professional manner when dealing with guests, vendors and colleagues)
  • Fun sense of humor (we all work hard and value working with people who can laugh, especially at themselves)

 To apply, please send ONE email with all the following documents attached to jobs@blacksheepadventures.com:

  • Current Resume (please fit on one page)
  • Scanned copy of driving record from the DMV (two options for those with California license)
  1. Online (requires registration and $2 payment). Go to this website: http://www.dmv.ca.gov/online/dr/welcome.htm
  2. In person at DMV (requires $5 payment).
