Senior Outdoor Instructors
Dragonfly operates out of two main areas: In China, they are based in Yangshuo and run courses in several other southern China locations.

Instructors must have an appropriate blend of technical outdoor skills, teaching skills and interpersonal skills to be successful in this position. Positions are available during the spring (mid-February through end of April/mid-May) and fall (September to the end of November).
