When it comes to working in a ski resort, the recruitment for the winter will usually begin towards the ends of Mat/beginning of June. And, it tends to run right through to when the season starts in December.

If you are really serious about working a ski season then you will want to get your applications in as early as possible as all of the best jobs get snapped up early. If you leave it until November or December then you may struggle to find yourself a job. And you don’t want that now do you?

You will want to make sure, before you apply, that you know how to write a cracking CV, and you will also want to make sure that you are suited to the role you are after.

If you're new to the world of season work, how about taking our Chalet Cookery Course? It's a week-long residential course that covers the basics of cooking for large numbers and sets you up for the season.

If you'd like the opportunity to meet and talk to lots of recruiters, come along to one of our regular Jobs Fairs. For more info on when and where the next one will be taking place keep an eye on our Facebook page, or sign up to receive our newsletter here.

Or, if you still have plenty of unanswered questions then go over to our Forum now. It is full of ex seasonaires who are all willing to help you with whatever questions you may have.
