Work With Us
In 2002 Alan, David & Simon packed up Simon’s Volkswagen Polo to the brim and headed off on the ferry to be Highlife’s 1st chalet hosts in or 1st chalet. Since then we have learnt to always hire someone better than yourself, and have been bringing a team of chalet hosts, chefs, managers, childcare and drivers from Ireland (on the plane now!) to deliver our holidays in the Alps.
This winter we need 41 great people to spend 5 months in the Alps helping us run our 12 chalets. We have many of the 18/19 team coming back but still need some new faces. We are constantly complimented on our bubbly, helpful team and know how much our customers enjoy being around people who get a kick out of their job. If you have relevant hospitality experience, a commitment to excellent customer service and bags of enthusiasm, we would love to hear from you. In return, for 5 months you will have a well-paid, challenging role in a beautiful snowy high-altitude home with more possibilities to ski or snowboard than you ever imagined.
We are an Irish company, with 17 years’ experience of providing great holidays to our guests, many of whom come back year on year, and Alan David & Simon are all still involved in the day to day delivery of our holidays.
We look forward to hearing from you.

“I loved the 3 winters I spent working in the Alps with Highlife. I worked in Val d’Isere for my 1st winter. There is a really steep learning curve (and really steep slopes!) but Seamus and Simon are always on hand to help you through any issues. I then spent seasons in Meribel. So many of the guests are returning guests so they know what to expect – we just have to deliver what it says on the tin! You really get to know your guests during their stay which is lovely, and the bond between the team after 5 months of hard work and a lot of fun together on and off the slopes is incredible. I would highly recommend Highlife as a great company to work for – and remember no one has every regretted doing a ski season!.”
“Training week was really great and once you read the handbook and have some common sense I think you’re well-equipped. The effort that both Simon and Seamus put in during training week and throughout the season to make sure we knew what we were doing and felt comfortable was huge and I really appreciate it.”
“I think that the Highlife package is fantastic! Everything you could want was included and it was the ideal set up for going on your own to do a season.”
“I am so grateful for the whole package that Highlife offered. The accommodation in Val is fantastic, like a really nice apartment. I was able to save enough money from the season to pay for my whole summer in South America without having to get a loan so for that I am extremely appreciative.”
“Just thanks very much. I remember I purposely deferred my grad contract in September to go and work a season with Highlife (after emailing Simon in January) and I really appreciate everything Highlife has given me. Just because I wouldn’t go back doesn’t mean I wouldn’t recommend it to my friends (which I have). I think it’s a fantastic company and the work that goes into the whole season is phenomenal, especially from Seamus. Working a season has opened up the world of skiing to me, something which may not have happened otherwise. I have also made some really good friends from the season.”
“Simon and Seamus were a pleasure to work with and I would recommend working with highlife if anyone approached me for information.”
