WINTER 2021/22

We are gearing up to make a triumphant return to the mountains this winter; however, the implications of Brexit and Covid-19 have made things far more complicated than usual, but this was to be expected after the last few years.

Our allocated winter 2021/22 UK staff positions have now been filled. We still have a limited number of roles as listed open to EU PASSPORT HOLDERS ONLY.

Ideally, you’ll need to be available from early December 2021 through to end of April 2022. Please note that since the UK officially left the EU on the 1st January 2021, a UK/EU passport reverted to a UK only passport from this date.

If you hold an EU passport and feel that your skill-set, personality, and experience make you the best person for any of the job/s listed below…

  • Housekeeper
  • Head Chef
  • Sous Chef
  • Chef De Partie
  • Commis Chef
  • Chalet Chef


  • Kitchen Porter
  • Bar Person
  • Chalet Host
  • Early Years Leader
  • Children’s Activity Leader
  • Spa Therapist
  • Restaurant Host
  • Hotel Host
  • Receptionist
  • Repair & Maintenance Technician
  • Night Porter


  • Your preferred job role/s,
  • Your dates of availability
  • Your cv and covering letter

We are extremely busy, so it will not be possible to contact everyone, but we will contact all successful candidates as soon as possible.

 As COVID-19 subsides and the Brexit implications become more manageable, there will be plenty more opportunities for UK staff in the future. We will continue working hard to get things back on track for winter 2022/23.
