Join the team at the top - choose your altitude!

The Cairngorms, in the Central Highlands of Scotland, form the largest area of high ground in Britain. The range is home to five of Britains six highest peaks. The alpine-arctic climate that dominates this mountain range has created a unique environment which is internationally valued for its landscape quality, rare habitats, scientific interest and not least its recreational opportunities.

Cairngorm (4084 ft), one of those peaks, stands on the NW edge of the range to which it gives its name. The range is Britains largest National Nature Reserve and is part of Scotland's second National Park.

The summer visitor season runs from May to October. The winter operating season typically runs from Christmas until the end of April, snow conditions permitting.

Looking after up to 60,000 skier and snowboarder visits each winter, and over 160,000 non-skier visitors throughout the year, CML employs 65 permanent staff and additional team members at the height of the summer and winter seasons.

Vital Statistics
We operate a Funicular Railway, 5 T-bars, 1 Platter lift, 6 Poma lifts, 2 retail outlets and 2 cafe/restaurant outlets

Who are we looking for?
As a large year-round visitor attraction, there are many different jobs available within the company. Of all the varied skills and personalities these jobs encompass, the common attributes of all our employees are

A willingness to get on with others
A willingness to work with a team in achieving the company goals
A conscientious attitude to work (reliable, hard working and flexible)

CML welcomes applications from anyone who is motivated and enjoys a challenge.

Overseas Applicants
All overseas applicants must provide a copy of their valid work visa (if applicable).


It is important to note that for the winter season 2007/8 we will be recruiting for CairnGorm Team rather than for individual departments. If, however, you have a preference, please mention this when applying.


Year-round positions available for Catering & Kitchen Assistants both full and part-time. The emphasis is on flexibility and fun!  Bar and food service positions. Some customer service experience required.

Customer Services

Year-round, this team makes sure our customers and staff are kept up to date with all the latest information regarding conditions on the mountain. They also meet and greet our customers, sell tickets, provide an information service and offer a carriage attendant service on our Funicular Railway. Good people skills combined with some IT experience would be helpful.

Equipment Hire
In winter we operate a busy hire department and repair workshop. Experienced hire technicians are always welcome. If you have workshop experience, so much the better.

Year-round, our retail team offer a wide range of goods. This is a permanent team although there may, on occasion, be seasonal opportunities.

Lifts and Tows
During our snowsports season we need folk who don't mind being out in all weathers to man our lifts and tows. Fit and customer focussed? This might be the type of work for you.

CML does not offer any staff accommodation. People generally find somewhere to stay in Aviemore or one of the surrounding villages. We can supply you with a list of useful information if you e-mail us.

All staff are supplied with uniform to suit the requirements of their particular job

Employee benefits
All winter seasonal employees receive a staff pass which can be used to access uplift facilities at CairnGorm and at other ski areas in Scotland.

Discounts are offered in our shops and restaurants as well as in many outlets in Aviemore.

You can enjoy free soup and bread roll at lunchtime.

There are opportunities to benefit from visits to other visitor attractions and you can use the facilities at our local swimming pool/gym (limited)
