Winter jobs abroad are varied but can be secured quite easily for those who are keen to work in cold and snow. The most common winter jobs for those on a gap year are ski jobs. Ski jobs vary from hotel managers, to ski instructors to nannies at the day care centre and are really easy to organise.
The most common resorts are in Canada, New Zealand, France and Austria. Canadian resorts in particular are extremely busy year after year and are constantly on the lookout for new recruits. Major resort names to look out for include Whistler, Sun Peaks and Whitewater. Hospitality hires the most employees for winter jobs abroad with roles available covering service, food preparation and administration.
Ski jobs can be exciting and fun. Winter jobs abroad are available to those with a good work ethic and an upbeat personality. If you think you have what it takes, check out our product listings.
