This job description aims to outline, in general terms, the tasks that you are expected to perform on a regular basis and the skills and attitude we expect you to have – however the job description is not exhaustive. There may be other things that you are required to do; you need to be flexible and willing to adapt to whatever is needed to make sure that your guests have the best possible holiday and want to come back to Purple Ski and tell their friends about us.

Working in a chalet company means above all working as part of a team. Rigid demarcation of duties leads not only to boredom but also inflexibility to the needs of looking after our guests.

You will work hard – and also find time to snowboard/ski, socialise with the guests and with your friends in the resort.

Equally important as our guests, are our landlords and landladies. Each chalet must be looked after as if it is your own and kept immaculately clean and returned to the owners in an “as new” state at the end of the season.
