Finding a job in the UK with Natives

By adamrowden, 20 Jul '12 at 09:35

Here at Natives we don’t just offer you the opportunity to find work in the snow. We know that it is addictive doing seasons, however, sometimes people feel the need to unpack and get a ‘real job’. And you know what...it's not as bad as it sounds (you get weekends for a start!).

Maybe you've graduated and you're kicking off your career, maybe you're overseas and fancy a stint in the in the UK. Ski and travel companies are often looking for reservations staff and hotels and restaurants often need staff.

So, here at Natives we also have jobs listed within the UK, click here to take a look at exactly what is available.

We have everything from sales and admin roles to catering staff and retail positions, so don’t hesitate to have a browse.

Once you get used to it, working in the UK isn’t all too bad, trust me. OK, so during the first few months of having a ‘real job’ all you can think about is being out on the mountain, but once you have suppressed those urges it can actually turn out ok. And, when you do head back out to the mountains for a holiday, it feels even better than you remember.

Chalet Couple | The application stage...

Decision made. You want to do a ski season. Maybe even make it regular or turn it into a career, perfect! Just one snag; no one is going to give you your first job for nothing! Whilst getting that first job can open doors to further work or continual seasonal employment from the same company, getting it in the first place can be a real ball ache. Like all ski season employers, they know you’re there to pick up that free season long lift pass and ski hire and hit the slopes all day. The only snatch is that you can’t really just say that in your job application and expect a positive response though, so get ready to unleash your inner A* BS.

And the first port of call for that new found BS, the job application.
