We are no longer recruiting for this position for 2023-24.
The YSE Maintenance Rep is the ideal job for someone competent, with experience of maintenance, electrics, plumbing, carpentry, decorating, etc.
You would normally own a reasonable toolkit already. You will be responsible for carrying out repairs in YSE’s nineteen chalets, or for identifying the problem when it is too difficult so that we can call in the appropriate repair service.
You could be required to deal with emergencies at any time, day or night, so while you will have more free time to ski/board than other staff on many days, there will be other times when you need to work on until the task is completed. Therefore, applicants must show that they are motivated and keen, have high standards and excellent time management without the need for constant supervision. When there is no maintenance work to do, the maintenance rep always joins in to help other staff with their work.
In addition to a good wage, you will be able to ski on six days of the week. We provide an allowance for travel to Val d’Isère and travel back after a completed season, accommodation, food whilst you are working, medical insurance, a ski pass and the loan of skis or snowboards (snowboards with a supplement) and boots. There are two days off per week. You will be required to pay a deposit for your accommodation which will be returned at the end of the season so long as you work until the end of the first week of May.
