Before embarking on your search into snowboard instructor jobs, your first step is to become qualified by a recognised body. This requires a body that is part of the International Ski Instructors Association (ISIA), which indeed allows you to instruct across the globe – plus shows you are trustworthy enough to have responsibility of others’ safety. There are 4 worldwide levels of qualification and to teach anywhere in the world you usually need to obtain at least Level 2 (although please check with your desired resort or country). A huge benefit of snowboard instructor jobs is the opportunity to improve your own personal skills and the ability to work towards higher qualifications (which can lead to higher pay), all whilst working your dream job.
Once you are qualified, you can then apply for snowboard instructor jobs all over the world, although you must consider where your qualifications are recognised and whether you need and can secure a working visa. With this internationally-recognised qualification and approved visa eligibility, chances are you will be able to instruct almost anywhere! Popular ski season destinations in which we have available roles are Europen countries such as France, Austria and Switzerland, all the way to Canada, Japan, New Zealand and Australia. Snowboard instructor jobs also allow flexibility in terms of contract length and location; if you are keen to travel around the best resorts in the world, you could aim to get short term contracts at a new location each season and get to see all the resorts on your bucket list, otherwise longer term contracts are sometimes available if you would rather show your talents at one particular resort.
