our hiring 


It all comes down to fit.

Our first step in recruiting our team each year is to attract the most suitable candidates to apply for positions with the company.


That includes being as clear as possible in our advertising and this website about the duties and rewards and also about the type of company we are and the type of people we’re looking for. We’re not for everyone and not everyone’s for us.

Our whole recruitment process has been designed to be:

  1. Transparent and fair on all candidates

  2. Efficient so that we don’t waste your time and can confirm employment or not as quickly as possible

The early stages of our hiring process are about the more practical aspects of the roles - essentially do you have the skills to undertake the job. The later stages are about fit - will you enjoy the job, will you work to a high standard.

recruitment steps.

1. Application Form 

There is no requirement to submit a CV. Through this website, you will complete a Job Application Form which covers:

  • Your personal details

  • Your preferred roles and resorts (it’s okay to express an interest in multiple roles and resorts), skills and experience

  • Why you think we’re a good match

2. Phone Screening

Candidates who meet our Application Form criteria will be invited to take part in a short Phone Screening. This will cover:

  • Your understanding of the roles

  • Discuss your skills and experience

  • Answer any questions you may have

3. Face to Face Interview

Candidates who pass our Phone Screening will be invited to an Assessment Day where we will assess your skills up close (think MasterChef) and interview you further.  (In very rare circumstances, if you have suitable experience in a relevant role with good references, this may take place by Skype.) This final interview will cover:

  • Demonstrate your skills

  • Your motivation for wanting to work with Ski Beat

  • Your approach to your work

  • How you work with others

  • Answer any questions you may have

**Please note due to the ongoing Covid19 situation this maybe conducted virtually

4. Contract, Bond & References

If you are successful at your Assessment Day we will send you a contract of employment within two working days.  This must be returned signed, along with a £100 bond, to secure your position within 48 hours. We will also send you a New Starter Form to complete, some Resort FAQs for staff and we will ask you for a telephone number to provide a Reference (please note the contract is subject to successful reference checking).

5. That’s it!

Once you’ve sent back your contract and submitted your bond, you’re signed up for the winter.  We will be in touch with you in the run-up to the season, and in the meantime, you can refer to the FAQs or our staff Facebook group with any questions.
