Outdoor adventure jobs

Hi everyone. Any ideas of how to get a job (part time or full time - taking bookings, in the office, customer service, etc) in or around Interlaken with one of the outdoor adventure companies starting around May 2016? I have British passport so should be ok to work there. Thanks, Emma.

Five months to learn German might help, for starters.

Languages will be needed for a booking office job. In Interlaken definitely English and German. Japanese, Chinese and French would be and great advantage.

Other than that, search all the companies operating in Interlake and write to them.

If you get yourself qualified as a ski instructor and white water raft guide, you'll probably be able to get work in Interlaken in the Summer, and up in Grindelwald in the winter, with only English. I know that is possible.
