As a Walk Organiser you would spend roughly half of your time on Outdoor Days, when you accompany guests on our 'Organised Walks'.
The other half of your time is spent in the chalet alongside other team members as a general host, partaking in a varied range of tasks centred around driving roles, airport transfers and most importantly, being a source of local knowledge and helping guests sort out their walking plans for the next day. Once a week or so you would also be on Welcome Duty from 3:30pm, greeting arriving guests, doing some paperwork with them and settling them into their accommodation. Another weekly job might be an airport transfer down to Venice and back, in a 9 seat minibus on mountain roads and some motorway.

Outdoor Days involve accompanying guests on our Organised Walks, reminding them of what to bring, showing them the way, looking out for their safety and welfare en route, chatting, getting to know them and enjoying each other's company as you walk. Later you would attend Office Hour again, sorting out their plans for the next day. These are the days on which you can enjoy the breathtaking scenery that surrounds us in the areas in which we are based in the company of our guests, who, like you, are likely to have a passion for the great outdoors. These walks are the opportunity to really get to know our guests. The experiences shared and life stories divulged form weekly relationships which enhance the experience of everyone back in the chalets, guest and staff alike.
