WORKING AS A CHILD CARER IN A SKI RESORT

blue square Skiing is not solely the domain of young, free and single adults, increasingly ski holidays are being taken by families, who make the availability of childcare facilities an important consideration when choosing their package holiday.

Some chalets or hotels will have their own creche, so you may be able to get employment directly with a ski company or a chalet. The other option would be a job with one of the many companies who specialise in providing in-resort child care, offering creche facilities, or providing nannies who will stay at the family's chalet.

Looking for something else? We have plenty more jobs awaiting your application.





While the parents are out getting cold on the slopes, you could be looking after children between the ages of a few months to ten years, though they will tend to be those who are too young to be clad in boots and skis and pushed down a green run. Hours may run from 8.30am until 6pm and perhaps one night a week late to give the parents a night out. While on duty you will be providing a structured day including meals, naps and entertainment. And don't forget, you aren't stuck on an industrial estate so entertaining the little troops should be easier than in the UK - show us a child who won't find a cable car ride, building a snowman or sledging great fun. If you want to know how a nanny job compares to other ski jobs, view our comparison table on this page.

Expectations

The qualification you will be expected to hold as an au pair or resort nanny will vary from company to company. While a professional qualification such as the Diploma in Childcare & Education (NNEB), a BTEC or NVQ will be a great asset and make you a valuable candidate, First Aid, CRB and a driving license can also be useful. Some previous experience of childcare will also be essential.

As well as a weekly or hourly wage, you may be able to get transport to and from the UK, accommodation, and even a season lift pass and ski/boot hire so you can learn how to ski, or improve your technique on your days off.
