DS2 has done a cookery course and is busy applying for jobs.
This is whole new world for us & I'd be grateful for any do's and don'ts.

We're happy to pay for upgraded insurance but other than the odd sub won't be able to fund too much.

Hey. I work for a British tour operator doing winter seasons and summers. Be happy to answer any questions you might have! I'm at management level now but started off bottom of the ladder and is one of the best things I ever did. It's really hard work and long hours. But quality of life is amazing and the friends you make are like no others!

Iwould totally recommend to anyone looking to explore or travel a little bit in a safe environment where someone is looking out for you.

Asks way!

Thank you Jen

He's been offered a job and is just waiting for a contract.
Is there anything that he should look out for in the contract?

The money is awful, but we know that's the case, but there's a clause about customer satisfaction and a weekly bonus, do you know how that's measured?

Travel to the resort is included, I presume it's by coach or else how will he get all his kitchen equipment out?

Should he buy boots before he goes or would it make sense to buy them there?

If he's injured and has to come home will his travel be paid?

He's really excited at the prospect of winter in the Alps but I think I'm neurotic grin
