Programme positions

The main role of all our programme positions is that of a counsellor. At our ski programmes, multi-activity programmes and summer camps, on arrival, children will be assigned to a counsellor group and the counsellor for that group will be the main care-giver and role model for the duration of the child’s stay.

 

Programme positions are extremely challenging, demanding enthusiasm and professionalism from wake-up to lights-out, but are also incredibly rewarding. Programme staff will face a wide range of child issues on a daily basis and are expected to provide fun, challenges, instruction and supervision, as well as discipline when required…..all at the same time as being a friend to a small group of influential children.

 

All programme staff are expected to supervise meal times and will be assigned to some wake-up, lights-out and other supervisory duties as required.

 

Before applying for any programme position, you should understand that these positions demand very long hours and very limited time-off, especially for short-term contract periods. The camp environment makes it impossible to schedule regular working hours and considerable flexibility is required from all programme staff.

 

Counsellors are responsible for the daily supervision and instruction of a small group of children with a similar ski or snowboard ability. Children never ski alone and are supervised from leaving the hotel/chalet in the morning to their safe return home at the end of the day.

 

Depending on the ability level and requirements of the group, counsellors may be expected to manage and present a video ski clinic or prepare a video skills review for school examination boards. All counsellors promote teamwork within their group as well as an appreciation of the mountain environment and encourage every child to improve their technique and develop their skills.

 

In addition to the daily skiing or snowboarding instruction, counsellors are expected to participate in a full programme of evening activities and occasionally escort clients from and to airports and train stations.

 

Preference will be given to applicants with experience instructing both skiing and snowboarding, but a limited number of positions are available to applicants with only skiing or only snowboarding experience.

 

 

 

 

Ski Snowboard Counsellor

Healthcare counsellors are responsible for both client and staff health. Daily responsibilities will include providing first aid when required, managing and administering prescribed medication as well as maintaining detailed medical records and producing comprehensive reports, as required.

 

The roles of “Healthcare & ski counsellor” and “Healthcare & snowboard counsellor” have most of the responsibilities of ski/snowboard counsellors and in addition to daily healthcare duties, include the responsibility for the daily supervision and instruction of a small group of children with a similar ski or snowboard ability. Children never ski alone and are supervised from leaving the hotel/chalet in the morning to their safe return home at the end of the day.

 

Healthcare counsellors are expected to participate in all aspects of the programme, including evening activities and supervisory duties.

 

 

 

 

Healthcare Counsellor

Multi-activity counsellors are responsible for the daily supervision of a small group of children at our multi-activity programmes and summer camps. Children are supervised from leaving the hotel/chalet in the morning to their safe return home at the end of the day.

 

Multi-activity counsellors will be expected to support and assist specialist sport and activity instructors as well as lead certain activity sessions, for which basic training will be given. All counsellors promote teamwork within their group as well as an appreciation of the mountain environment and encourage every child to improve their technique and develop their skills.

 

In addition to the daily programme of sports, outdoor activities and excursions, multi-activity counsellors are expected to participate in a full programme of evening activities and occasionally escort children from and to airports and train stations.

 

Preference will be given to applicants with experience participating in a number of sports and/or outdoor activities, either as an individual or part of a team, as well as those with experience of working at a summer camp.
