A number of companies will look to employ staff for the peak season weeks alone. They will require more staff when their workload increases in the busier weeks, which tend to be during Christmas and New Year as well as the February half-term and April.

More often than not the companies that require these peak season roles will be ones that operate for schools or the ones which concentrate on families. However, some can simply work with corporate groups and have peaks during the season.

The type of peak season jobs available can vary from chalet hosting to repping and childcare jobs. Other peak season jobs can include cheffing and instructing, so keep an eye out for all of these.

The benefits of peak season roles are obvious. If you can’t get away for the entire season but fancy a few short stints in the mountains then these can be a perfect way for you to do so. Peak season work cannot be treated as a holiday, however, as you will be expected to roll your sleeves up and work hard. Remember, your new colleagues will have been grafting all winter, you can’t rock up and take it easy.

A number of companies recruit staff for peak weeks only, including First Choice, PGL, Powder Byrne, Equity Travel and more, so if this sounds like the thing for you then simply browse the peak season jobs advertised on Natives now.
