Are you a native English speaker who also speaks Spanish, Italian or German and enjoys walking in the mountains?
We are looking for a Hill Walker/linguist to join our small, friendly resort teams in the villages in the Spanish Pyrenees, the Picos de Europa, the Italian Dolomites, and the Austrian Alps. The job is all about providing daily hospitality to our guests, helping with some domestic chores and accompanying our guests on Organised Mountain Walks every other day. Good outdoor navigation skills and experience of walking in the mountains would be needed.
Your language skills would be needed for daily communication with our local landlords and suppliers; booking activities for our guests with local centres (white water rafting, horse riding, canyoning etc.; sorting out problems with car hire and lost luggage; and accompanying our guests to the doctors or hospital to help translate as and when there was the need. You would need to speak Spanish to a good intermediate level at least, and be able to express yourself clearly.
Collett's are a small, independent mountain holiday specialist, who have been operating since 1998. We are looking for sociable, friendly and engaging people with a passion for the outdoors who would like to look after our guests to help them enjoy their time on holiday with us in this spectacular corner of the world.
Most, if not all, members of our previous resort teams have cherished their time with us. This, we believe, is due as much to the friendly working relationships, which develop within the team each year, as it is to the beauty of the areas in which we are based and the potential to enjoy them.
Many of our summer staff come back to work with us in the winter too.
Start Date: various dates throughout May
