Stop! Hammer time…
Do you know the difference between a flat head and a pozi? Are you always the one to fix a leaky tap? We’re looking for individuals who can turn their hand to any basic maintenance issue. At the Chateau no two days are the same, one morning you could be repairing a broken bunk bed the next you could be touching up paint work in the lobby.
You’ll be working at our beautiful Chateau in Normandy, France. We offer residential trips to school groups, so as you can imagine our Chateau requires quite a lot of regular upkeep.
Not only is there the upkeep of the interior of the Chateau but also the surrounding grounds as well. We have an A class rugby pitch and tennis courts all of which require regular upkeep and inspection. In addition to these duties you’ll need to be able to drive as our maintenance team will often be responsible for collecting new staff and deliveries.
In return, you’ll get to spend the season in our amazing Chateau Du Molay, in this truly idyllic part of France! With Paris only a train ride away, some great sandy beaches, an area of natural beauty steeped in History, and a buzzing little hub nearby, you’ll be sure to make memories of a lifetime with your new found best friends!
We’re looking for people who…
• Have excellent attention to detail and take pride in their work
• Resourceful to get the job done (we are in quite a rural part of France!)
• Prepared to roll up their sleeves and get stuck in, sometimes in different departments in the hotel
• Hard working, yet efficient
Not forgetting the formal bits!
You’ll need to have an interest and some experience in general maintenance as well having your own kit of basic tools. Being able to drive and being comfortable driving in France is a must!
