Meet Katie

Recruitment Assessor, Surbiton, UK

Hello! I’m Katie,

I joined the TUI Group in 2016 where I started out as a chalet host in Les arcs, France.  I have had a passion for the mountains all my life having started skiing at the age of three and the opportunity to work as a chalet host could not come fast enough.

I loved the different challenges that being a chalet host presented. My favourite aspect of the job role is how immersive it is in the customers holiday and how much of a difference you are able to make. I quickly fell in love with the season lifestyle and my ‘just one season’ quickly went out of the window.

I became passionate about Crystal as a brand, so as soon as the opportunity arose to work over the summer for them, I jumped at it. I spent my first summer season in the recruitment team as their admin coordinator, getting to learn more about the recruitment process and the business as a whole. As my first office based role it was a completely new and different environment for me, but quickly found out that recruitment was something I was passionate about and wanted to pursue further.

Returning for winter 17/18 season, I wanted to develop with the company and experience a different role. I was successful gaining an admin rep position and placed in Morzine and Avoriaz. This allowed me to take on different responsibilities and develop my skills in another area.

All of my season experiences have provided me with invaluable skills that have allowed me to come back as a recruitment assessor for the winter 18/19 campaign . I am very excited to get started and to meet all of the potential new recruits!
