A Career in Snowsports
In a bid to help aspiring snowsports instructors get their footing on the career ladder, Peak Leaders are offering a number of instructing jobs to their clients after completing instructor courses in Europe.
‘Having successfully partnered with European Snowsport in Verbier over the last 5 year and trained over 150 instructors, we are delighted to extend this partnership to Zermatt too. Our instructor training programs provide the ideal recruitment pool for European Snowsport and other snowsports schools to handpick our best clients to join their team of staff in Zermatt and Verbier. It’s a fantastic opportunity for those wishing to work in the industry to put their qualification into practise following our course,’ says Mhairi Hughes, Marketing Manager for Peak Leaders.
European Snowsport’s Director Julian Griffiths agrees, ‘Over the last 5 years we have added some fantastic instructors to our team through Peak Leaders instructor training programs. Throughout the coaching, we are able to monitor clients as they develop their skiing and teaching skills, then we are able to bring the best to our team. It’s also a great way for newly qualified instructors to start their career in some of Europe’s most prestigious resorts.’
Mike Joyce, Operations Director for ES (and former PL client) has found that, ‘I have been in professional contact with many Snowsport Instructor companies over the past 6 years and have failed to find one with a more comprehensive programme, higher standards or greater exit opportunities than Peak Leaders. They are without a doubt the stand out organisation in their field.’
Our ski and snowboard instructor courses give you gap year or career break that adds value. Everyone on these courses will gain ski school experience during the courses and given the skills to graduate with the BASI Level 2 qualification, an internationally recognised & highly regarded instructor qualification. Aside from finishing the course a much improved skier or rider, the course helps develop commercial skills such as improving interpersonal communication, team leading and interview technique, all of which will lead to a stronger C.V going forward.
