Employment Opportunities

At Nantahala Rafting with Fast Rivers, we believe in a friendly, fair, and creative work environment, which respects diversity, new ideas, and hard work.

Employment opportunities are now available for the 2022 season – we are looking for enthusiastic individuals to join our “River Family” this summer! We are currently hiring river guides (or those interested in being trained as river guides) to help customers enjoy the Class II-III rapids on the Nantahala River. We are also seeking drivers, CDL drivers, and a photographer. The ideal team member will share a love for the outdoors while helping others enjoy it as well.

Spend your days at work with customers who are on vacation!!! Nothing but smiling faces and happy people. Then spend your free time kayaking, mountain biking, hiking, going to the lake, or exploring the Great Smoky Mountains.

Here at Fast Rivers you will have the opportunity to be a key player in making the 2018 season a great one! We take pride in hiring only the best! This upcoming season is going to be amazing for the Fast Rivers Family as we are embracing our 2nd season in the brand new outpost! What a wonderful year to be a part of the excitement!

We do offer staff housing, for a minimal fee, which is available on site. It is on a first come, first serve basis as space is limited. This addition has proven to help make summers at Fast Rivers even more enjoyable. We know you’ll appreciate walking to work and living where the great outdoors is your home.

Please print out an application, fill it in, and email it to: willtruett@outlook.com ~ we will then be in touch but feel free to follow-up.

We look forward to hearing from you.
