Therapist - Portugal

March – November 2020

We’re on the hunt for an experienced masseur/therapist with a unique offering and the desire to spend some time in the beautiful Algarvian sun (and to partake in some surf and yoga, too, if that’s your thing!)

You must have a minimum of two years’ experience working as a professional therapist, and be qualified to offer at least three types of treatment, including deep tissue and holistic. Ideally you’ll also have some experience working in a retreat environment.

Please don’t expect this to be a gig where you just show up at a pre-prepared room 5mins before each session. Our therapists are a key part of our team and will need to manage all aspects of the department and to get to know our guests in order to book treatments. That means problem solving, fixing, organising, promoting, admin, accounting and beyond.

If you’d be interested in applying, please use the form below to contact us and give us a quick overview paragraph or two with the reasons why you’d be a good fit for Soul & Surf, in particular demonstrating a good understanding of us, our ethos and our background, plus attach your CV.

Please also send us a short paragraph about your philosophy and approach to massage therapy; what inspires you to help others? What have been some your personal discoveries since working in therapy and body work?
