If you’re looking to enjoy a season in the mountains, then Glenshee offers the ideal opportunity to work where you play!  Our season generally commences around late December and runs until Easter, but can be longer or shorter depending on snow cover. 

We commence our recruitment programme in November and successful applicants then await notification of a start date.  The date depends on the arrival of snow and employees should make themselves available as soon as possible after that. 

Accommodation is in short supply, but we do try to advise on the best options available.  The nearest village is Braemar (9 miles) to the North and to the South there are many small hamlets and villages towards the town of Blairgowrie (26 miles).  Staff transport is available from both Braemar and Blairgowrie.

Due to Covid-19, this season we are looking for a couple of recruits to be reponsible for the hygiene and waste disposal in public areas. As we understand this is not glamerous but could prove satisfying to the right person. 

Staff are provided with a free lift pass and lift operators are provided with a uniform.  A discount of 50% is offered on ski and snowboard hire and special staff prices are available in the cafes.  Transport is provided by mini bus to and from work from the surrounding areas.  Working hours are generally 40 hours per week, 8.30-5.00pm, over seven days, with two days off.
