Why Work With Us

Why Work at Cairngorm Mountain

Cairngorm Mountain doesn’t just offer one of the most amazing environments to work in, we also provide our staff with a range of excellent benefits.


We understand the importance of giving staff time to enjoy themselves outside of work. Working with us you will receive not only holiday entitlement but also access to additional benefits.


As part of your standard package you will receive 29 days paid holiday including bank holidays for all team members under 1 years’ service. After completing 1 years’ service and onwards, you will receive 31 days day paid holiday including bank holidays per annum. Part time team members have a pro-rata entitlement to this amount related to their days worked. Zero hours team members accrue holiday in line with the hours they work.
