It is a couples position for a guide (level 1 guide, experience is not essential) and a receptionist - sharing accommodation. We are looking for a young and enthusiastic couple who have a nice way with people.
The guide salary is R4500 and the receptionist salary R5500 - so a total of R10 000. The receptionist will get tips from the general staff tip fund, usually about R500 - R1200 per month and the guide will get tipped separately by guests - this can vary from as little as R1000 a month to as much as R15 000, depending on the guide and the guests. We do not guarantee tips, but I know that the guides in particular like to know what their earning potential is.
We will provide uniforms, accommodation, meals and laundry at no charge. We have a provident fund which they will contribute 6. 5% of their salary to, and the company will match this amount. There is no medical aid, however if they choose to have a private medical aid or hospital plan, the company will increase their salaries by R400 each in order to assist with this. This would then put them on R4900 and R5900 respectively.
