What we expect of you

Take Pride in your work

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.

Responsibility & Take your Work Seriously

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.

To be Driven and Flexible

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!

Enjoy your downtime

It's not all about work here at Mountain & Tradition. We know that Les Gets and its surroundings are an outdoor wonderland. And, we want you to enjoy it, just as much as our guests do. While certain times during the winter season can be particularly busy, others allow amply opportunity to head out and grab a few hours on the slopes.

We provide a high-level of service that is only achievable when our staff are relaxed and satisfied. Your time off is as important as your time on... enjoy them both.

This also needs to be right for you...

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.

We are happy to chat through anything, warts and all, so please do just get in touch if there's anything you'd like to discuss first before applying.

Applying for a work visa in France:

To be able to work with us, you'll need to make sure you are eligible to work in France on a French contract. Typically, citizens from most European countries do not need a visa however if you are a citizen from outside of the European Union, you will need to pursue the relevant permissions prior to starting work with us.

Following the UK's withdrawal from the EU, UK citizens now require a visa to work in France. Please find below our (hopefully) easy explanation of the steps you'll go through when applying for a visa to work in France as a non-EU citizen.

  • UK Citizens

    There are 2 different permits required for you to work in France. You'll need a work permit which we as a company need to apply for, and then you'll need a long-stay visa to be able to live in France, this you'll need to apply for yourself. We will help you along the way as much as we can, but please note we can't do everything for you.

    Step 1

    Once you have been successful in the application process with us, you'll sign our work agreement.

    Step 2

    We will then submit the application for your work permit.

    Step 3

    Once we have the work permit you can apply for your visa by:

    • Completing the France-Visas Form
    • Creating your TLS Contact Account
    • Securing an appointment
    • Going to the appointment
    • Delivering your passport

    You can find more detailed information here, and here.

    Step 4

    Once you have your visa approval, you'll need to send us a copy. You are now 100% ready to work with us in France!

    Step 5

    When you are here with us in France, we'll make an appointment on your behalf at the local French immigration office.

    Step 6

    Once the appointment has been made, we can help you to get there as the immigration office is about an hour drive from Les Gets. At this first appointment, they will give you your temporary visa paperwork.

    Step 7

    You'll then need to go to a second appointment at the immigration office where you'll receive your permanent visa called a “titre de séjour”. This will state the exact dates you can live in France for (a visa can be up to five years)

    There are costs involved when applying for the visa. Visa fees can be found here. When you pick up your permanent titre de séjour, you will also need to pay a local tax.

  • Non-EU and non-UK Citizens

    Depending on your nationality and your age, you may be able to benefit from the working-holiday program. This program allows you to visit France for a period of more than three months, and up to one year, with the right to work during that time.

    To be able to apply for a working-holiday visa, your country or territory must have signed an agreement with France. Today, there are 15 countries or territories part of the program, which are listed here.
