While those looking to spend a couple of weeks whizzing up and down mountains and in and out of bars have plenty of time before they need to book their hols, those of us wanting a job in Europe’s ski resorts have to start acting now.
Positions available will include ski reps and instructors, managers, bar staff, hotel waiting staff, hotel cooks and chefs, resort reps, maintenance people, housekeepers, kitchen porters, night porters, general assistants, childcarers and laundry staff.
Whatever role you choose to take on, you should be an enthusiastic hard worker with good customer service skills to stand a chance of landing one of these much sought after positions. For some roles a second European language is required or will increase your chances of being hired. Applicants applying to a British tour operator will typically be required to have a UK or EU passport, a UK bank account and a permanent UK National Insurance number.
