Jobs A great place to work

Just over an hours drive from Christchurch, Cheeseman offers a friendly, fun, family, accessible, alpine experience to its customers.

With competitive remuneration including meals, accommodation and ski passes we provide a seamless deal that enables our staff to enjoy working and living in the mountains.

We have a strong contingent of returning staff that work well as a team and look forward to working with additional new team members. We have high professional standards and expect staff to work with a positive and enthusiastic attitude.

Ski Instructor

We require the services of 2 instructors to join our small and very personal ski school team for the 2021 season. You will find yourself teaching a huge variety of clients of all levels, meeting many new faces / friends during your time as an instructor at Cheeseman. The Ski School also helps out with a wide variety of other tasks around the ski area depending on your skills, but you must not be shy of picking up a shovel to help clear the decks along with many other tasks - you'll take away from your experience what you put in! Applicants must have NZSIA Stage 1 one as minimum requirement (but preferably level 2) and minimum 1 seasons experience teaching / instructing within the ski industry. PLEASE NOTE: Due to the ongoing Covid-19 situation and NZ border controls / isolation requirements, applicants who are local or here in NZ with work Visa's will be looked on favorably
