Description:
Walk Leaders Wanted

Collett's are a UK based independent outdoor holiday specialist operating in the spectacular Italian Dolomites, Austrian Alps, East Tyrol, Spanish Pyrenees, Picos de Europa, Andalucia and Tuscany.

We are once again interviewing for our summer & winter resort teams to start 14th May and 1st December respectively. As a ‘Walk/Cycle Organiser’ or ‘Ski/Walk Organiser’ (Winter only) you act as a member or our hosting team, looking after our chalets domestically and the guests within them, and spending half of your time in the mountains accompanying people on mountain walks or ski/snowshoe itineraries, and every other day helping with domestic jobs around the chalets. These are hospitality jobs with a fantastic outdoor element.

Working within a tight knit staff team, as well as the necessary outdoor skills you need to be sociable, polite, courteous and not afraid of hard work. You must have a genuine interest in looking after people and a view to helping them to get the best out of a stunning area. Most members of our previous resort teams have cherished their time with us in the picturesque locations throughout Italy, Austria and Spain. This is due as much to the friendly working relationships, which develop within the team each year, as it is to the beauty of the area and the potential to enjoy it.

We interview year round for the forthcoming & future seasons. We are currently looking mainly for experienced hill walkers.

Requirements
*Plenty of experience of walking in the mountains and navigating using a map in mountainous or wilderness areas, even it has just been as a hobby and not leading groups etc..
