Due to a high number of returning staff members we are only recruiting for the following positions:
School & College Co-ordinator
Generally known throughout the ski industry as a hotel rep. At Interski we know them as Co-ordinators, in recognition of the importance and extent of the work they do. You will be the first point of contact for school and college groups upon arrival in resort and are invaluable to the overall running of their programme, liaising between group leaders, hoteliers and coach drivers. Typically you will be responsible for their movements around resort, accompanying them daily to the slopes, après-ski activities and eating with them in your hotel. You must be flexible and eager to provide an exceptional level of service and face to face customer care, with good team spirit and lots of initiative. This vital role requires the ability to deal with an array of situations, so the ability to communicate and organise effectively is essential. These team members are more often than not in the spotlight and must have a thorough knowledge of the operation. A very demanding but rewarding position.
One of the most demanding and integral positions within our resort team. These team players are responsible for being in three places at once, assisting in every aspect of the Interski operation. Always contactable 24/7 by phone and/or radio, Resort Assistants must be able and prepared to cover as and when necessity dictates. You must be a good all rounder with a range of skills and qualifications. This role is diverse so requires a flexible hands on and proactive approach. A desire to learn quickly and the ability to think beyond the initial situation are key requirements. Duties generally involve providing practical support and advice to both clients and fellow colleagues, mannnig après-ski, airport transfers, staffing ski hire and dealing with on-mountain incidents. You will be expected, therefore, to be flexible, hardworking and forward thinking. A driving licence is essential as driving duties are an integral part of this role in providing clients with transfers in and around resort and also our 'Meet and Greet Service' at Turin and Geneva airports.
A unique position to Interski, you will act as a translatory service between any injured clients and the medical services in Italy. This role does not require any medical experience, you must organise logistics and act as a linguistic aid only. In the event of an accident or illness these invaluable team members are responsible for going to medical centres/doctors/hospital and hotels, providing caring and supportive back-up for sick/injured clients in resort. Duties include liaising between Italian and British agencies involved in the medical process. A willingness to provide an exceptional level of service and care is essential, as is the ability to communicate and organise effectively in this very demanding but rewarding position. You should be able to deal with clients colleagues/suppliers in a professional and reassuring manner during any emergency situations, whilst remaining calm and in control at all times. Italian/French is essential in this role.
Snowsports Holidays Co-ordinators deal with the day to day running of Interski Snowsports Holidays (adults and families) in your specific resort. You will always be on hand and available to facilitate the smooth running of the Snowsports Holidays product. Unlike a Schools/Colleges Co-ordinator, the Holidays Co-ordinator will look after up to five hotels as opposed to just one. You will be responsible for everything from the organisation of arrival lunches to airport meet and greet. You will deal with evening venues, hoteliers and suppliers and always report directly to the Snowsports Holidays Manager. This is a challenging and varied role with less daily structure than our School/College Co-ordinators. Good communication skills and an ability to work under pressure is essential, as is an interest in dealing with the adult market. Italian or French is an advantage.
Part Time School & College Co-ordinator
As a part time member of the team you would be employed on a casual basis as a School & College Co-ordinator. Generally known throughout the ski industry as a hotel rep. At Interski we know them as Co-ordinators, in recognition of the importance and extent of work they do. You will be the first point of contact for the school and college groups upon arrival in resort and are invaluable to the overall running of their programme, liaising between group leaders, hoteliers and coach drivers.
