We're looking for a maintenance person with management experience able to step up to be our resort manager's second in command in beautiful Megeve.  We could look to make this a permanent role if things work out this season as we do have a summer business as well.

If you are an outgoing, organised, experienced maintenance person who can sort out the day to day maintenance in resort but is also able to take on larger projects in between seasons, then do get in touch.  You would also be our resort manager's deputy so we are looking for someone with management experience who can help to maintain standards throughout our chalets and liaise with guests and staff.  Ideally you would speak french so that you can speak to suppliers.  Megeve is an excellent place to spend a ski season with a huge ski area, there's great off-piste and you get plenty of time off to be able to enjoy your skiing.  We work as a small team so there's always people to head on up the mountains with. 

The Job

  • Looking after the maintenance in our chalets from minor maintenance jobs to more major projects, sourcing supplies and suppliers and running bigger projects if necessary
  • Being the resort manager's second in command - managing staff, liaising with guests, maintaining standards in the chalets, ensuring that everything runs smoothly and the guests are having a great holiday.
  • Taking part in the transport rota, picking guests up from the airport
  • Assisting in all areas of resort operations, wherever needed including washing up, manning the bar and housekeeping in our other chalets

Stanford Skiing's Setup:

  • Two chalet-hotels, one chalet and apartments in Megève
  • A team of around 15, including 5 members of staff for each chalet-hotel and 2 for the chalet

What we offer

  • Competitive salary plus tips
  • Travel to and from UK, medical insurance, food and good accommodation
  • Ski / board and boot hire, full area (445km) ski pass and proper time off to use it!
  • A chance to influence your working environment and be part of decisions that will make your job and the guest experience better
  • Ski lessons for those who haven’t skied before or who want to improve

We ensure that your hard work is rewarded with what you’re here to enjoy: skiing. Megève is a great resort with a large ski area and fantastic off-piste. We like to ensure that our staff are happy, partly because happy staff makes happy guests but also because we are out in Megève for most of the season and we like to work with people who are enjoying themselves.  A lot of our staff have remained our very good friends.
