"All the office staff were always friendly, helpful and polite no matter what time of the week, day or night you had to call in. This is not the same with almost every other transfer company I have worked for."

 

 

Excellent company to work for! The thorough winter driver training, made me feel totally at ease before carrying out my first real transfer. Skiidy really look after you. The office staff (they're the best) are always at the end of the phone and happy to help. There is a big team atmosphere and camaraderie amongst the crew. You get plenty of time off to shred the slopes and the job it's self is definitely one of the best resort jobs out there. You'd be mad not to work for Skiidy!
