Bar staff in ski resorts serve drinks and snacks to customers in licensed premises, such as pubs, clubs, restaurants, wine bars, cafes and hotels.
Personal qualities are often considered to be more important than formal qualifications, with employers seeking bar staff with an outgoing personality, a good sense of humour, honesty and trustworthiness, good cash handling skills, and excellent team working skills. The minimum age to serve alcohol in a bar varies between countries but is usually 18 or 21.
Qualifications and key employers
Most employers arrange on-the-job training for new bar staff but those wishing to gain qualifications before they apply for jobs may find NVQs in Bar Service and qualifications from the The British Institute of Innkeeping Awarding Body and Wine & Spirit Education Trust to be recognised by overseas employers.
Employers of bar staff include bars, clubs and hotels in ski resorts. The demand for bar staff is particularly high during the ski season, with employment opportunities being advertised through recruitment agencies specialising in travel jobs. Full-time employees are usually expected to work shifts, but the majority of bar staff work part-time. Bar staff work long hours, with almost all roles involving evening and weekend work.
The starting salary for bar staff in the ski industry is around £9,000 a year. In some establishments, staff may be able to top up their earnings with tips from customers. With experience and training, bar staff may progress to become supervisors or bar managers.
