Who we are
TYL Travel Ltd is the company behind the customer focused brand of Ski Amis. The Company Directors are the proof that with the right attitude and work ethic you can succeed. All three Directors had established themselves at Ski Amis Ltd and when the opportunity arose to take on the reins they made it happen and Time of Your Life Travel was born.
Working a winter season could be one of the best experiences of your life. You'll make friends for life, take home memories and learn many new work/life skills - as well as perfecting your skiing or snowboarding.
Come and work for our dedicated team. After our first season in the driving seat of the Ski Amis brand we are keen to find our 20-21 team to join our returners from last season. It’s an exciting time to join as the management team are focused on improving not only our client’s holiday experience but also that of our staff.
When you are not at work you will have access to the hill to be able to improve your skiing or boarding skills or just enjoy the view with new friends made.
If you are a member of the team you are expected to work to a high standard to ensure our guests have the best holidays but we also care about making sure you have the best experience possible. There will be tough days (especially at the beginning) but then as you get into the swing of things, the job becomes natural and your time on the piste becomes longer. If you can get over that first hurdle, you'll never regret it.
We have a whole choice of positions available for singles, couples - those that like a change of pace, people who are good in an office and also handy people with good DIY skills. We are sure to have a role that suits you.
We are a small full time team and we would love to welcome you to our clan - check to see if you qualify on the next page and we hope to hear from you soon!
Resort Based Positions
Our minimum requirements for ski resort jobs are as follows, without exception so please make sure you qualify before spending your time on a full application:
Eligible to work in France, either via secondment UK resident (prior to Brexit deadline) or EU resident
Full EU driving licence, held for a minimum of 2 years with a maximum of 3 penalty points
Aged over 21 (for vehicle insurance reasons) - all staff are required to drive so we cannot consider you if you are under this age
We are particularly interested to hear from people with any of the following skills:
Dinner party enthusiasts - for all chalet couple jobs you must like cooking and know your way around a kitchen but this doesn't have to be in a professional capacity. Some experience in a catering environment would be useful
Experienced drivers - people with 2 or more years of driving experience connected with their job in the last 10 years (which your previous employer is prepared to confirm in a letter) – this does not have to have been the main purpose of your previous job and can be with any type of vehicle. Alternatively, a driver CPC (from having worked as a coach or truck driver) or a RoSPA advanced driving certificate would qualify you too!
French language skills is a bonus - although not essential
Good skiers - with knowledge of the Three Valleys or Paradiski areas
People who have taken quality catered chalet holidays themselves and understand the high service requirements of our business
Overall – you must be motivated to succeed and committed to the development of a career in a fast moving industry which serves a demanding public
Applications which do not fulfil the above minimum criteria will automatically be excluded without response. If we have stated a “sex” requirement on one of our adverts this is due to accommodation and sleeping arrangements to fit with existing staff and not because we have any specific preference one way or the other!
