General Assistant – Skibound Winter 24/25

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 a General Assistant?

As you might have already guessed from the name… A General Assistant has a big array of general duties across our Skibound clubhotels – Variety really is the name of the game!

A key focus of your role will be cleaning and housekeeping duties ensuring that guest's bedrooms, bathrooms and communal areas are spick and span for our guests! This might be a daily check of guest rooms to ensure that bins are emptied, and toilet roll has been replenished or it might be a deep clean of the whole hotel on a busy Saturday change-over day with beds to be stripped and re-made, getting on your hands and knees to bleach the bathrooms and hoovering bedrooms and hallways.

You’ll also be a warm and friendly face in our restaurant at mealtimes to ensure that breakfast, lunch and dinner run like clockwork for our hungry school guests! Whether it’s setting out cold breakfast items, laying tables or replenishing buffet items, you’ll need to show initiative to make sure our guests are well looked after.

As a General Assistant, you’ll be an invaluable team player with a willingness to help your team-mates across all departments of the hotel when needed – This could range from covering night porter shifts, stepping into the kitchen to help with pot wash, jumping on your hotel bar to serve drinks and merchandise to teachers and students, clearing snow from paths and balconies and assisting in Ski Operation Team.

Finally, we’re sure you’ll agree that as a General Assistant, you’ll be busy and have lots to learn but you’ll never be bored! Check out what skills and experience you need below and be sure to apply today!

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.
