Handyperson/ General Assistant – Winter 21/22
Stop… Hammer time!
A winter season with Skibound is like no other. We offer a unique ski experience to budding skiers from all over the world, with school and youth groups at the heart of our business. You will be based at one of our 3 lively club hotels across 3 resorts in the French Alps, home to some of Europe’s best skiing and après – Alpe d’Huez, Les Menuires and Serre Chevalier.
Our club hotels, resorts and shining reputation means Skibound are market leaders in ski experiences for both guests and staff!
The low down as a Handyperson…
During the busy Winter season, our hotels require some TLC. Leaky taps, bunk bed repairs, snow clearing, and light bulb changing are all in a day’s work as a handyperson. And don’t forget, you’ll be working at the top of a mountain, so you’ll need to be resourceful – no B&Q here! You should also be able to work safely and efficiently and be ready to get stuck in with other hotel duties when required. You’ll sometimes be working independently but will thrive as part of a bigger team working across all departments.
The second part of your role will be to support in other departments of the hotel – This includes supporting the housekeeping team with cleaning and making beds, supporting the kitchen team with pot wash and cleaning the kitchen after service and any other duties that might need doing. Variety really is the spice of life!
Our motto at SkiBound is ‘teamwork makes the dream work!’ We are looking for positive, can-do individuals who share our teamwork ethos – Our job adverts will give you a good flavour for each job role but other duties within the scope of each role may be required.

- Happy to roll your sleeves up and get stuck in with all departments of the hotel to support your colleagues (this will include pot wash, changing and making beds and cleaning across the hotel)
