Recruitment overview - 2013-14
Please read this overview for a description of working for YSE, and information on how to apply.
Although we have 21 chalets in
Val d’Isère – substantially more than any of our competitors – we are,
and always will be, a small company. We recruit our staff carefully, and train them thoroughly.
All of our staff come to Val d’Isère
because they want to ski almost every day for five months on some of
the best slopes in the world. You don’t have to be a good skier – it
doesn’t even matter if you’ve never tried skiing at all – but you have
to be a fairly sporty, outdoors sort of person to contemplate a season
in the Alps. Most of all you need to smile alot and want to help our guests enjoy their holiday and return with YSE next winter!
Applicants under 21 years old need to
show exceptional qualities to be considered. All applicants must hold a
British passport and a valid UK National insurance number.
We rarely take staff who have completed a season for another company, with the exception of very good chefs and cooks.
While working for YSE you are paid a
monthly wage in arrears in Britain. You are provided with board and
lodging, a lift pass, certain items of uniform clothing and the use of
ski boots, skis and poles (or a snowboard).
We transport you to the resort
at the end of November and back to Britain in early May.
