Collett's Mountain Holidays
Salary: £85 pw full board and lodgings, insurance, travel
Location: Europe (non-UK), Austria, Italy, Spain
Job type: Seasonal
Contact: Phil Melia
Category: Hospitality Jobs, Instructors Jobs, Resorts Jobs, Summer Camps, Summer Jobs

Collett's Mountain Holidays are looking for outdoor enthusiasts who have Hill Walking and/or Road Cycling experience for hospitality jobs in the Italian Dolomites, Austrian Alps, and Spanish Pyrenees & Picos de Europa each summer.

Collett's are a small, independent mountain holiday specialist, who have been operating since 1998. We are looking for sociable, friendly and engaging people with a passion for the outdoors who would like to look after our guests to help them enjoy their time on holiday with us in these spectacular corners of Europe.

Walk Organiser

You would be joining small, friendly resort teams providing daily hospitality to our guests, helping with the domestic chores around the resort, and accompanying our guests on Organised Walks every other day in the mountains. Experience of hill walking with good outdoor map reading navigation skills would be needed, but not necessarily experience of having led groups before. Ideally, you would also be a confident driver with at least a year's experience on the road.

Walk Organiser/Road Cyclists

Three of our Walk Organisers in the Dolomites, as well as being involved in our Walking Programme would also be Road Cycle Organisers, taking small groups of guests out on day rides, once a week, around the amazing high passes which are a feature of the area.

Walk Organiser/Transfer Drivers

Another five of our Walk Organisers in the Dolomites also do two Airport Transfers each week, instead of the normal domestic chores the rest of the team do. For these roles, as well as the hill walking experience described above you would also need to be confident driving a 9 seater, long wheel base minibus on mountain roads.

Most, if not all, members of our previous resort teams have cherished their time with us. This, we believe, is due as much to the friendly working relationships, which develop within the team each year, as it is to the beauty of the areas in which we are based and the potential to enjoy them.

With a high rate of returning staff there are opportunities to come back to work a winter season in the Dolomites too.

Start Dates: Early to mid-May each year

From May to September

Qualifications & other paperwork:

Although these jobs are based in Italy, Austria and Spain you would need to have the legitimate right to work in the UK. Practically this means you would need to have:

  • A British National Insurance Number – if you are not a UK National you would also have to be currently working under British National Insurance Legislation for us to be able to employ you in Europe
  • A British Bank account into which we could pay your wages
  • A current First Aid certificate

The Package

  • As well as the weekly wage of £85 we provide you with accommodation, travel to and from resort, medical insurance, and a two week period of orientation and training at the start of the season. You would need to be available for the whole season, which runs from mid-May until late September.


Please apply with a 1) a CV, 2) a cover letter explaining why you are interested in this job, 3) a photo so we can put a face to the voice when we chat to you by phone.


  • Have you had a driving licence for more than one year?
  • Do you have experience of hiking/walking? Please describe this in your cover letter.
  • Are you confident navigating with an outdoor map?
  • Are you happy to share a room?
  • Are happy with a role which has an even amount of indoor domestic work and time spent walking in the mountains with our guests?

Ideally you would then be available at short notice for an informal interview in Saffron Walden, 12 miles south of Cambridge.  We would also consider Skype interviews if you are currently working outside of the UK
