Work For Us

 We are now recruiting for winter 2016 – 2017 season.  For details of how to apply, please read on!

About Us

Offering fully catered ski holidays in the resorts of Le Grand Bornand/ La Clusaz in the Aravis and Samoens in the Grand Massif, our short breaks include everything our guests need to enjoy a hassle-free ski holiday, including lift pass, airport transfer, on-site ski hire and exceptional service from our ski team. With over 12 years in the ski business, our levels of returning guests are very high, showing that we and our team must be doing something right! Visit our Why Us page to read more about why our guests choose to ski with us year after year and our Ski Weekender home page for full general information about the company.

We pride ourselves on our very high level of personal service and consequently our guests say time and again that they love our ‘can do’ attitude as well as the skiing. The majority of our guests comment on the great service they have received whilst on holiday – confirming that our ‘nothing is too much trouble’ attitude is crucial to our customer service approach.

In order that this trend continues we are looking to recruit the very best in winter staff; our standards are very high, but we will offer you more than most companies in return.

All our staff need to be efficient, flexible and conscientious in their approach to work. To get the most out of a ski season you’ll need to be prepared to work hard, be energetic and love working with people. The ski season is a fantastic way to spend the winter and although the hours can be demanding and long, your rewards include plenty of time on the mountain, meeting lots of new people, and our great benefits package. We will look after you extremely well and ensure you have a fun and memorable ski season.

The package we offer

All our staff are offered a good benefits package, including: transport to/from resort at the beginning and end of the season; a room in a shared apartment (with communal area in which to relax – not a cramped studio sleeping 6 which some companies provide); all meals supplied whilst working; a season lift pass; ski and board equipment; ski travel insurance; discounted bar drinks and a competitive monthly salary plus end of season bonus and reward.

A bit about you

In return we expect loyal, professional and cheerful staff; on hand to meet all the guest expectations at all times. To work for us you must be very hardworking, work well as part of a team, have experience in the job you are applying for and be prepared to muck in when needed in all aspects of chalet life.

Roles on Offer for the 2016/17 Season

  • CHEFS – to provide meals of an excellent standard for both our guests and our team, whilst managing the kitchen environment and catering function.
  • CHALET HOUSEKEEPERS – Head Housekeeper and Assistant Housekeeper roles are both essential for maintaining our high standards of cleanliness throughout the chalet, as well as managing smooth efficient changeover days.
