Full Ski Season - France and Italy (December to April)
The life of a seasonnaire is an exciting mix of work and play. The hours are long and there’s lots to keep you busy, but as soon as you hear the click of your boots in your skis on top of the mountain, overlooking the beautiful alpine setting, and experience the thrill of plummeting down the Piste suddenly all the hard work is worth it.
The full season package includes a monthly salary, local lift pass, accommodation and meals, Wi-Fi, in-house ski hire/discounted snowboard hire, transport to and from resort, as well as insurance. You can also enjoy a discretionary bar discount, holiday concessions (10% off RocketSki holidays), a stylish Equity uniform and comprehensive training.
The Hotel Manager is the heart of the hotel. As you oversee the running of one of our charming Club Hotels you’ll take pride in going above and beyond to ensure your guests and your team have an outstanding experience. As a Club Hotel manager you need to be ready for anything!
You’ll get stuck into the nitty gritty of daily hotel life while being responsible for managing budgets, supplier relationships and staff development. And you’ll do all this in a beautiful Alpine setting! Your enthusiasm and energy will support the effective communication between you and your team to ensure everyone is motivated to excel in their roles.
Responsible for the overall guest experience, policy implementation and the profit and loss of your operation. Your duties range from workforce planning to staff development to advocating exceptional customer service.
This role is certainly challenging but the rewards are second to none! You will take pleasure in watching your team grow and develop into top Seasonnaires whilst witnessing your clients ooze excitement every day.
As a Ski Tech you will be the first point of contact for our guests from fitting boots to supplying equipment whilst providing exceptional guest service.
You will be responsible for maintaining our ski equipment as well as completing any weekly paperwork.
Let the fun and games commence! You will support the management team in organising and running the evening entertainments for our guests. A fun and energetic approach will certainly come in handy with the children!
You will be comfortable in liaising between the hotel team, customers and suppliers to ensure a smooth operation maximising sales opportunity and dealing with any guest feedback.
Club Hotel Staff
The Club Hotel staff positions are the most varied roles in the Alps! With a mix of all things hospitality, you are sure not to find the season repetitive. From cleaning to waiting tables to working in the kitchen, each shift is different from the last. Your day might consist of turning over guest rooms, setting up the dinner service and interacting with our customers. Or maybe you'll be in the kitchen prepping meals with the chefs. If you excel in one area you might be asked to specialise as the season progresses. For example, if you're fantastic at creating cool mocktails for kids, you're likely to get more bar shifts!
Whatever you're doing, you are the cogs that run this engine (excuse the cheesy analogy). Some would argue this is the most important role of them all...
Full Ski Season - France and Italy - Chef Roles (December to April)
Working primarily with menus for school groups, but also for our RocketSki guests, not one day will be the same whilst working up in the mountains with Equity.
As a Commis Chef you’ll help keep the rest of the kitchen team organised throughout the season! The Commis Chef is often referred to as the ‘go-to’ guy or girl in the kitchen if something needs doing, even if that includes the washing up!
You can expect to help with preparing and cooking good quality, healthy and nourishing food to all our guests and the staff and generally helping the kitchen team. You will assist with food deliveries too and ensuring that the stock is rotated. Sounds like a big job but that said, there’s less responsibility involved so ample time on the slopes. What more could you want!
Sous Chefs are vital to the kitchen team. You will support the team in delivering high quality, healthy meals for our guests and in the absence of the Head Chef, you’ll be in charge.
You will practice at the highest standards of health and hygiene producing pre-set menus, improving service standards and staying within budgets. Your role is varied and holds responsibility including maximising profits, assisting stock takes and receiving deliveries.
