Attached to this e-mail you will find my CV and hopefully you are looking for somebody like me.  I am 25 years old and from the UK, and I can speak French, Spanish and English (because I have lived in Canada and England).

I have been living in Egypt, working as an OWSI in the Red Sea (in dive centers and liveaboards) for almost 1 year, also  been working in several dive centers (since 2005) in Spain, so I am used to work under pressure, but also being nice with students and customers (what helps me to get nice tips and my bosses get extra course sales).

I am Nitrox Specialty Instructor, I have around 1.900 dives and around 250 certifications and I am travelling with my own equipment.  Although I am not a Tech Diver, I am ready to learn if needed, same with any other specialty you might think useful.

Other interesting facts…
1  I have worked as a Team Leader in Spain for the last two years, coordinating groups of monitors working with kids and adults, doing indoor and outdoor activities.
2  I am ready to help with computers to the Sales Staff, as I am a Computer Technician when I do not work in a Dive Centre or in Leisure Time activities.

Although I live in Madrid (Spain), as I said before I am arriving next month, so although right now I can not make an interview in person, I can make it with the Skype, just tell me your user name or free-phone so I can call you when it better suits you. Alternatively we can speak through normal phone as soon as I arrive with you.

If you want to contact me you can do it using this same e-mail.   I am hoping to get news from you very soon.
