Hello, we're Jana and Raph and we run Mountain & Tradition! We live here in Les Gets all year round. Raph is a Les Gets local, and is the head chef of the company. Jana grew up in Estonia, before meeting Raph when we were both working in Dublin, and Jana looks after the customer service end of the business.
We moved back from Dublin to Les Gets in 2008 to start our own chalet company, and 13 years later Mountain and Tradition is going from strength to strength. We are very passionate about the products we offer, and are already looking forward to meeting our new team for this winter.
Originally from Australia, Ash started working with Mountain & Tradition as a host in 2017 with a strong background in hospitality and tourism - She has since joined the management team here. She takes care of the guest relations part of the company, and looks after the organisational side of the holidays. When she isn't working she spends her winters snowboarding, and her summers exploring the Portes du Soleil on foot.
We hope you'd like to join us. As always, please do just ask if you've any questions about us, the company or the jobs.
We are here all year round and run our company hands on. You'll be working with us directly in all areas of what we do. We are here to work with you, and offer training and support throughout your time. If you have a passion for cooking, or you are hoping to make a career as a chef, then working with Raphael is a great step forward. One of the best chefs in the Alps, Raphael has worked across Europe, including in the two Michelin starred Restaurant Patrick Guilbaud in Dublin.
Since we first founded the company, improving our production systems and quality of service has been at the heart of the business. This is not only to improve the experience of our customers, but also the workplace experience of our team — by creating easy-to-use and effective procedures which are applied throughout.
We are committed to regularly communicating environmental policy objectives and action plans, and we expect each of us — in the context of our daily activities and the monitoring of our projects — to implement and apply the principles and actions defined in our environmental policy. You can find more info throughout our website and our Environmental Policy.
We are looking for people to take pride in their work. Those who take satisfaction in a job well done, no matter if it's a job big or small. We are looking for those who can not only maintain our standards but help improve them.
We are all here because we love being in the mountains, and we want you to enjoy yourself here too. We've worked hard to design enjoyable roles that give you good ski time alongside your work timetable. Whilst we are at work though we expect everyone to take their role seriously. This is not a holiday, and we'd expect all our staff to approach their role in a dedicated and professional manner.
As a small company you may be involved in lots of different aspects of the business. You don't need huge experience, but you do need to be enthusiastic to learn and have a will to get stuck into all areas. Being part of a small company is great fun. There can be a lot of different challenges popping up and we are looking for people who enjoy getting stuck into everything, who can think on their feet have a can-do attitude!
We need this to be right for everyone - we want to be happy with you, but we also want you to be happy with us. We've put time and effort in to provide lots of information for you, so hopefully you can make an informed decision on if these positions are right for you.
