Another winter season has come to an end and whilst most people are looking forward to their summer holidays, recruitment has already started for next winter. The sooner you start planning for your next winter position, the more choices you’ll have for which job to accept. Plus the added bonus of having your winter plans sorted long before everyone else, meaning you can enjoy the summer, without having to worry about what you’ll be doing later in the year.
But don’t just take our word for it, have a look at just a few of the reasons why finding your next winter seasonaire job through us is the best move…
1. CV advice
We’ve seen our fair share of CVs and know what clients look for when choosing their staff. We can give you the advice to make sure your CV stands out from the crowd and is written and formatted in the best way for the roles you are applying for.
“Really helpful, quick and responsive, and found me a place which was much better than my previous one. They are very professional.” – Jacob, Chef
2. High paid jobs
We work with the best private chalets and luxury tour operators in the business, so you can be sure that not only are our seasonaire roles the best in the business, our clients also offer some of the highest wages around, so you can have a great season AND come back with some savings in your bank account.
“It was amazing, a great opportunity. I wouldn’t have gone for it if Philippa hadn’t convinced me, she filled me with confidence and pushed me for a role I didn’t think I could do. Now I’m working in the private sector on a yacht.” – Maddie, Chef
3. We know our clients best…
Most of our clients have worked with us for years, and we’ve been out to visit them all in resort. By meeting the teams and seeing the chalets where you will be working, so we know if you’ll be the right fit for a role, ensuring you have a happy season!
“Silver Swan understand the industries in which they recruit and get the right candidates for the right jobs. I appreciate the reference checks and the thorough, professional approach. I’m very happy with the service Silver Swan provide and will definitely work with them again in the future.” – Luxury Chalet client
4. We want to get to know you too
We’re here every step of the way to give you advice and support throughout your job hunt. Not only will we have an initial Skype interview, but we’re also at the end of the phone if you have any questions about any of our roles. The more we get to know you, the easier it is to match you to the best company for you.
“Everybody has been very friendly and helpful, and they’re not just looking to place the right person for the role, they’re also looking for the right role for each person.” – Cara, Host
5. Industry knowledge
Our clients are spread throughout the Alps across France, Switzerland, Austria and even Japan. We’ve been out to every resort around so that we can give you advice on the best location to suit you – not to mention insider tips on the best slopes, bars and chalets, too.
“I decided nearly 4 years ago I wanted to work a winter season, and from the first phone call the team at Silver Swan were absolutely amazing. The resort they found me was so good I am still there 4 winters later.” – Chauffeur
6. Fast track applications
When we put you forward for our roles, our clients trust that you are the best candidate for the position. Sometimes there is no time for them to trawl through CVs to find staff, and they know that a CV from Silver Swan will be someone worth talking to straight away. As such, the majority of our seasonaire staff are placed almost immediately.
“I found Silver Swan to be a lifesaver. Within a few hours of me contacting, they returned my email and invited me straight to an interview process. I then got an amazing job with hardly any work on my behalf!” – Charlotte, Host
7. Long-term help
Our seasonaire candidates come back to us season after season looking for the best chalet roles. It’s great if you return to the same chalet year on year, but if you fancy a change, we love working with the same candidates each year. We will also add you to our database, Silver Swan Select, where clients can browse for the perfect candidate for their vacancy.
“The high level of clients that they represent leads to amazing opportunities all over the world. We love working with their team and will continue to do so throughout our careers.” – Amie and Michael, Chalet couple
8. Year-round options
We don’t only have winter seasonaire roles – our vacancies vary from seasonal chalet vacancies to summer positions in villas and on yachts, and we also have permanent vacancies in private households, on private jets or even roles in the Middle East if you want to try something new and earn an excellent, tax-free salary. If you have finished your season and are looking for your next adventure, get in touch to see what’s out there.
“I’d worked as a chef in restaurants and hotels and decided I wanted to travel but didn’t have the funds so looked into working the winter season in a chalet. I applied for a poor tour operator, but 2 weeks in I found Silver Swan Recruitment online. I sent them an email and they got me a new incredible role within four days! I’m now four seasons in, all recruited for by Silver Swan, and am now in a stunning £15 million villa awaiting the summer season. All thanks to Silver Swan!” – Louis, Chef
9. Honest, professional & fun service
At Silver Swan, we pride ourselves on giving you a personal yet professional service, all whilst helping everyone get their dream seasonaire role. When you pick up the phone to us we will always give you the best advice we can. We don’t want you to take just any role you are offered – we want you to have the best season you possibly can! Therefore, we’ll be honest with you if we don’t think a role will work for you, or if we think you’d be better suited elsewhere. We aim to make the perfect match between candidates and clients…while keeping everyone happy in the process too!
“Ever since applying to Silver Swan the service we have received has been amazing, the consultants have always been there to swiftly answer any questions and it really feels like they have your best interests at heart – striving to find the perfect fit for both employer and employee. It takes a lot of the stress out of the whole application process and streamlines it in a friendly and efficient way – we would highly recommend them!” – Tom and Jannelle, Chalet couple

If you ever need convincing that spending five months working in the mountains is the right thing to do, you’ve come to the right place! We’ve done multiple ski seasons between us and are passionate about all things skiing (and snowboarding!), so know how much fun you will have. If you work hard and like to explore your surroundings, there’s no better place to spend a winter!
