Recruitment has started for winter 2014-15

We are now underway with recruitment for Winter 14-15.

The roles available can be found on the PDF link below:
Ski winter jobs available for The Tignes Chalet Company

Driver recruitment is currently proving tough for this winter, due to new changes in legislation at Geneva airport.
This has been ever changing during winter season 13-14, and relates to the driver qualification required to pick up and drop off clients from the Swiss airport.
Previously a French license was the main requirement, whereas now a Swiss equivalent is needed.
This is not an issue for the directors/owners of a transfer company, but requires further qualifications for any staff who work for the company.
It is likely that our drivers will require a ROSPA advanced driving qualification. We are currently working hard with other transfer companies to understand the exact requirements of this.
N.B. The above legislation is only the case for Geneva airport because it is in Switzlerand (even though it has a French access side).
Grenoble, Chambery and Lyon airports remain unaffected.

This should not make any difference to our clients; it just makes for a busier paperwork summer for us!

Winter 14-15 has already started!

We have already sold lots for next winter 14-15, in fact a record for us at The TCC.
At over 30% of beds already sold, this is great news for us, and perhaps highlights a good customer base of return clients.
The below page has the current availability:

The current euro exchange rate perhaps helps. Now up at 1.25, an 18 month high, this makes for cheaper euro holidays for us all! Long may it continue.

Hoping you are having a great summer so far!

P.S. Apologies for not keeping the blog up to date.
We aim to keep on top of this from now on!
