Schools & College Co-ordinator

ROLE DESCRIPTION

Our Schools & College Co-ordinators would be the first point of contact for a Schools & College group upon their arrival in resort and are invaluable to the overall running of their programme, liaising between party leaders, coach drivers and suppliers.

The arrivals day is a busy but pivotal day – it’s time to welcome the clients, get them kitted out with their equipment and rental wear, get them fed and checked into their hotel, deliver a party leader welcome meeting and a group welcome meeting to ensure everyone knows what is going on for their week in resort.

On most occasions you would be based in the hotel with the clients, and you will take all of your meals with the group. On a daily basis you will be at snowsports check out (morning) and check in (afternoons) and you will be hosting the après ski event (activities range from bowling, ice skating, tubing, karaoke, quiz, bingo, disco, pizza night & snowsports school presentation etc).
