Assistant Hotel Manager – Skibound Winter 22/23

A winter season with Skibound is like no other. With over 30 years’ experience in the industry, 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.

What will I be doing as an Assistant Hotel Manager?

As an Assistant Hotel Manager, you’ll be second in command to the Hotel Manager and an integral part of our vibrant clubhotel team. Dependent on the size of the clubhotel you are offered, you will normally work alongside a fellow Assistant Hotel Manager.

Customer experience will be at the heart of everything you do in order to maintain and exceed the high standards across the clubhotel. You’ll have eyes and ears across each department to identify where the team are excelling and in which areas improvements are needed. Your management experience will also aid you in spotting opportunities to maximise business potential.

You’ll lead your team from the front and set an example on attitude and work ethic. Whilst some days you might lead a daily team meeting to motivate your team, other days you’ll be happy to get stuck in and help your team with the key duties across the clubhotel including housekeeping tasks, taking part in a mealtime restaurant services and even pot washing and snow clearing! You will be approachable and fair, so your team feel comfortable coming to you for support.

Each day will vary slightly over the winter season so it’s important to be flexible with the operational needs, but some of your key duties will range from creating staff rotas, liaising with HR and head office in the UK, reporting into your Hotel Manager and department checks to ensure standards are met.

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.
