In some roles you can also earn tips, these can be very generous and are a gift from our guests to the team to show appreciation for your hard work.

  • You will need to be eligible to work in France on a French contract. This can either be with an EU passport or a French Carte de Sejour. Following the UK’s withdrawal from the European Union, we can no longer accept applicants with a UK passport, but we hope that this will change in the future.

  • Our training courses start in November and our chalets close in April. You will be given exact dates once you have been allocated to a resort as some close later. If you aren’t able to commit from the beginning of the season it is still worth applying as we sometimes recruit new team members during the season.

  • Yes! We want our teams to be happy with where they are working and during your interview will discuss your preferences with you. If you’re not sure which resort you’d like to work in we can give you some information that may help you to make your decision.  To guarantee that you get your first choice we advise you to apply as early as possible.

  • If you already live in resort or would like to find your own accommodation then we are happy to discuss this with you and pay a generous contribution towards costs. Please note that the contribution is usually only available if you accept the position before the season begins.

  • Once your start date is confirmed you can book your flight to Geneva, we will send a transfer to collect you and bring you to your resort to begin the season. A travel contribution of €220 is made at the end of the season.

  • All towels and linen will be provided in your staff accommodation, you will also be provided with a cleaning pack of essentials when you first move in.

  • Due to the busy nature of our winter season, we can’t guarantee that you’ll be able to take holiday. You will be able to take two days off each week to enjoy your surroundings and make the most of the mountains. Your holiday pay will be paid at the end of your contract.

  • We require all of our employees to have held a full and valid driving licence for at least two years. This is so that you can drive our vehicles, whether you’re covering a chauffeur shift or running an errand. All of our employees are provided with winter driving training and it is a requirement of your role that you pass that training.

  • A lot of our staff accommodations have laundry facilities in them, if they don’t you’ll be able to do your laundry in the chalet, just speak to your chalet manager to find out when the best part of the week is to use the machines.

  • We provide food whilst working which means that when you’re off you can either use the cooking facilities in your accommodation or experience some of the brilliant local cafes and restaurants.

  • We don’t have an exact uniform that we ask you to wear, instead, we have guidelines that we ask you to follow, these will be sent to you when you are offered the position. You will be provided with a black outdoor jacket from Planks.

  • Most of our staff accommodations are within walking distance of your place of work, if it isn’t then you will be able to use a company vehicle to either drive yourself or take a lift.

If you’re going into shared accommodation we, unfortunately, cannot accommodate pets. It is something to discuss with us during your interview.

  • Our season runs from November to April, if you are only available for part of the season, please mention this in your application as we do sometimes need short-term team members.
