    • You must have achieved at least 5 subjects in GCSE Grades A to C and have at least Grade 5 or “C” at GCSE Maths and English or equivalent.
    • Fluent English essential, both verbal and written - some French language skills would be useful but not essential
    • A desire to learn the technical ins and outs of digital marketing including SEO, PPC, Google Analytics, email marketing and social media - the successful candidate may have some business studies or related subject in their education or experience to date
    • Excellent writing ability - able to produce persuasive and fluent text to enable them to develop the skills for web content production
    • Excellent IT and analytical skills - a good knowledge of PC based applications, including Microsoft Word, and some experience of graphics design would be an advantage. Keen to develop these skills and to broaden into other applications such as WordPress
    • The successful candidate could come from various backgrounds - and we are flexible to consider applications from any individual who feels they have the ability and desire to advance into this role and can demonstrate and convince us why they believe they are suitable.
    • You may have worked in a supervisory or team leading capacity in another industry - or perhaps you have already “done a season” working for a chalet company in resort and want to further your career in the industry. Either way, you will have a keen interest in sales and marketing and the desire and commitment to develop to a senior management position in the future.
    • Ideally, you should have experience of the ski industry - either having worked in the industry on a seasonal basis, or at least having taken ski holidays at some point. If you do not have any knowledge of skiing, it may be necessary for you to undertake some pre-employment research to learn the basics, which we can help you with.
    Personal qualities
    • “Go get it” attitude - determination and drive to succeed and achieve personal and business targets
    • Potential for good team management - motivational ability and interpersonal skills
    • Keen to learn marketing tasks at all levels - from strategic planning to basic content production and design
    • The role will involve managing and motivating the team of sales consultants to achieve the sales targets of the business - you will need to demonstrate some leadership skills and general commercial awareness to recognise and make the most of sales opportunities. You need to be hungry to win every client who approaches us and prepared to push and support your team to achieve this.
    Qualifications required
    • You must have achieved at least 5 subjects in GCSE Grades A to C and have at least Grade 5 or “C” at GCSE Maths and English or equivalent.
    • Fluent English essential, both verbal and written - some French language skills would be useful but not essential
    Future prospects Upon qualification at the end of the apprenticeship, a complete review will be undertaken to assess the individual's capability to function fully in the role of Sales and Marketing Manager. Further training requirements or areas requiring more development may be identified at that time or if the standards required have been achieved, then the appointment to Sales and Marketing Manager will be made along with the commensurate salary and management employment conditions. Opportunities to complete Degree Level Apprenticeships will also be considered at this stage. Things to consider The role will suit someone with experience in industry and is unlikely to be appropriate for someone with little or no work experience. All applications will be considered equally.
