Assistant Hotel Manager - Winter Ski 17/18SkiBound France
Second in command…
As a Skibound Assistant Manager you truly will form a partnership with our Hotel Managers, striving for the same goal in creating an excellent experience for our customers and team. You’ll really understand how a hotel works and be able to confidently manage, when the going gets tough.
What are we looking for?
- A customer comes first attitude to working
- Responsible and reliable
- Hard working and not afraid to roll your sleeves up and muck in
- A real team motivator (means more time on the mountains for you and your team)
- Able to be on top of your game from dusk till dawn
- Must be able to speak French
Not forgetting the formal bits…
You’ll have experience supervising a team in the hospitality industry and be able to motivate and engage them to champion Skibound’s required standards. Don’t forget you’ll be with your team for a full 5 months so being able to relate and lead your team is key. You’ll have a passion for hospitality and understand how a hotel operates whilst having a true love for resort life!
I am on my 7th season having worked previously in chalets and bars, I joined Skibound last season as an Assistant Manager and it has been the best job yet by far! I have been snowboarding most of my life, competing in freestyle competitions before being plagued by injury, and through that developed a love for the mountains.
Favourite Part of the Job
My favourite thing about the job is that no day is the same and when you are constantly interacting with both guests and staff there is never a dull moment.
Best work memory
My best memory from the winter season was working with the ski fit team on a changeover day, after already racking up a 12 hour day we managed to fit a whole school in less than half an hour with a record time of 26 seconds to fit a pair of skis.
Why you should join Skibound
Working for Skibound you can expect to meet a range of like minded individuals where everyone is open and accepting and you will feel part of a family within no time at all.
What do you do during your time off?
In my time off I get out snowboarding as much as possible, and can be found enjoying a few après beers in the afternoon sun.
What qualities do you need to work a season?
You can’t shy away from hard work to make it through a winter season, you need to be ready to throw yourself into a range of tasks and keep a smile on your face no matter how many hours you might have worked that week! However it’s all made worthwhile waking up to the mountains every morning, working with some awesome people and making friends for life.
