PROPERTY SERVICE ASSISTANTS or COUPLE
Vaujany Property Service is looking for two enthusiastic people or an established couple to help run a small apartment and chalet management and caretaking business in the exclusive resort of Vaujany, Alpe D’Huez. All Chalets and apartments managed are a mixture of private usage and open rental market.

The village’s own large cable car can whisk you up the mountain and to connect with Alpe d’Huez.

Comfortable accommodation with own private bedroom is also offered. The price of a local area seasonal ski pass will be given as a bonus at the end of your contract.
Principal duties include preparing chalets for owner’s arrivals, welcoming of guests into their rental accommodation as well as their departures, accommodation change-overs (housekeeping and laundering of linen) and some general maintenance or ad-hoc duties to attend to. The properties that are being dealt with are considered high end that demand impeccable cleaning standards with meticulous attention to detail. Previous experience in a similar role and knowledge of the resort will be viewed favourably. Driver’s license an advantage.
