Recruitment overview

Please read this overview for a description of working for YSE, and information on how to apply. There is detailed information for each available position, each on its own separate page.

We have twenty chalets in Val d’Isère – substantially more than any of our competitors – but we are, and are happy to remain, a small company. We recruit our staff carefully, and train them thoroughly.

People apply to work in Val d’Isère with YSE so they can 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 it helps to be a fairly sporty, outdoors sort of person to get the most out of a season in the Alps. Most of all we’re looking for smiley people who are keen to help our guests enjoy their holiday so that they’ll return with YSE next winter!

All applicants must hold a British passport and a valid UK National Insurance number. Applicants under 21 years old need to show exceptional qualities to be considered.

We rarely take applicants who have completed a season for another company, with the exception of very good chefs and cooks.

Wages are paid monthly in arrears into a UK bank account. YSE staff are also provided with board and lodging, a lift pass, certain items of uniform clothing and the use of ski boots, skis and poles (or snowboard).

Transport to the resort mid November and back to Britain in early May is also provided.

You must be available to work for the whole winter season. If you are offered a position you will be asked to pay a deposit (£100) when you sign your contract with YSE. This deposit will be returned to you at the end of December 2017 as long as you are still employed by YSE.

If you wish to apply, please read the relevant job description and follow the link to fill in an application form for that position, attach a photo and submit your form. Please note, if you do not get a screen confirmation saying your form has gone through, we will not receive your form.

With over 1,250 applications each year for just 35-40 jobs, competition is very strong. If you do not follow the correct instructions for submitting your application, you are unlikely to be selected for interview.
