Setting up and keeping an inventory of all mobile phones & laptops for resort managers at the start of the season.
Monitoring staff working hours each week and generating timesheets.
Formulating lift pass reports on an Excel spreadsheet for our Guest Services team to order guest lift passes each week.
Resolving issues with WiFi & phones for chalets and staff accommodation during the season.
Being in charge of petty cash and expenses. Each week you will balance the petty cash and make sure each resort has enough money for the week ahead.

A typical week
You will work split shifts, starting in the office 8am-11am then returning to work 5pm-8pm in the evenings.
During the day you are free to ski or do as you please!
You will have the same 2 days off as the rest of our resort team each week so you can join in with all the fun and entertainment in resort.
Sundays are our changeover days and your most busy. In the morning you will visit chalets to collect cash from chalet honesty bar and packed lunch sales during the week. On Sunday evening, you will have received petty cash from all three resorts which will need reconciliating.
Mid-week you will formulate lift pass reports to be used by the Guest Services team to order lift passes and you will check their orders have gone through correctly and that their payments balance.
Day-to-day you will keep on top of admin such as logging staff hours and generating time sheets, filing receipts, recording petty cash payments and balancing financial books in resort. You will be required to help resolve problems with WiFi and phone lines when they arise.
An ideal candidate will be...
Organised - there's a lot of multi-tasking within this varied role so you'll need to have good time management skills as you make your own schedule for the week.
Resilient - tackling WiFi and phone line issues can be challenging so you will have to be patient and open minded when trying to find solutions.
Pro-active - you need to have a keen eye for detail and be alert to notice any mistakes e.g. in lift pass orders before they are processed.
Computer literate and have strong Excel skills.
Confident speaking French, particularly over the phone.
