Online Application

Thresher shark sightings are a common occurance at Monad Shoal in Cebu

Great news – if you have arrived at this page then you must be thinking about joining our team in the Philippines! We are very glad to hear it.

The application process is really very simple… it just involves the simple steps outlined below. If at any stage you have any questions, we always like to talk.

Please try to give the fullest answers possible. Don’t worry if you feel you haven’t got any relevant experinces or qualifications. While these may be desireable, they are defineitly not a pre-requisite! More than anything else we are looking for volunteers with energy, enthusiasm and motivation. With this, great things can be achieved!

Application Process

First things first! Are you ready to apply for an expediton with People and the Sea? We hope you have taken a look at the website to get an idea of what it is all about.

Proceed with your application by filling out the form below. Please give as much information as possible – we are particluarly intersted to hear why you want to join us for an expedition and we want to be sure we are the right organisation for you!

As part of our standard application process, at this stage we will most likely ask to arrange a call with you if we haven’t spoken already. This also gives you the chance to ask any further questions you may have. This does not constitute a formal interview, but rather an informal chat where we get chance to make sure People and the Sea is a good match for you.

You will receive a conditional offer from us within 2 working days. This will include a provisional quote on the expediton fees you can expect. If we have not already spoken to you by this point, we are likely to ask to arrange a call with you.

Your place will be confirmed upon receipt of a 10% deposit of your expedition fees. Upon recepit of this, we will then send you all pre-depature information to get you ready for your experience of a lifetime

Look forward to the big day! We will see you soon….

Expedition Application Form

For diving volunteers, the minimum expedition length is 4 weeks (this can be reduced to 3 for already qualified divers). For non-diving volunteers, the minimum expedition length is 2 weeks.
Please note that our expeditions start on the first Saturday of each month. You will be required to arrive on Malapascua on that day.
You are able to select up to two different start dates if you are unsure at this time.
We accept both diving and non-diving volunteers. Please indicate if you are looking to dive on your expedition or not. There is the possibility of combining the two options although this would need to be discussed in more detail with the People and the Sea team.
We do offer Divemaster Internships. Please be aware that the minimum expedition length for this is 8 weeks.
We are keen to better understand your motivations for joining us. Maybe you just want to learn more about marine conservation! What are you expecting to gain from the experience, and what appeals to you about People and the Sea. Please give as much detail as you can.
This can really be anything - there are many opportunities to apply yourself while with us! Examples include photography, social media, videography, teaching, GIS, statistics to name just a few!
We offer support for students undertaking academic placements as part of their under/post graduate degrees. In this case, we would need to discuss in more detail with you the aims and objectives of your expedition and identify an appropriate on-site supervisor. This will require a more detailed discussion.
By ticking the box above, you are confirming that all the information you have provided is true. You agree to inform us should there be any changes.
You also agree that you have read and understood the People and the Sea Privacy Policy that explains what we do with your personal information (basically, we won't be giving it to anyone!)
