#1  Chances of coming up to Meribel and baggin a job?  29 Nov '05 at 13:30
AM im f'kd with being an aussie and not having a Uk working visa. Ive got a French working Visa but none of these companies offer accom and lift pass etc.

What are my chances of just coming up to Meribel and getting a decent paying job, enough to cover accom and pass??

Cheers,

You have a French working visa? Wow - I don't know any other Aussie who ever did that...!

You should be okay for a job that gives you accommodation, and maybe a lift pass too. The big companies won't employ you, but the smaller ones will. Prolly a good thing to get into resort as early as possible to get the word out/stick notes on noticeboards.

Hmmm, Kram....as in Mark spelt backwards like Kram from Spiderbait does?

Good luck with the jobhunting!

Yup, Mark Warner won't give you a job... unfortunately for you, they own most of the night spots in Meribel (Rond Point, Scotts, Le Pub, d&%k's Tea Bar, Pizza Express, and I think The Tav too...).

I dunno what your chances are to be honest I'm afraid, but most of the big companies won't touch you with a 20ft pole if you've not got a UK passport.

Kram,

Have a look at the hotels, they take on french workers, giving the whole lift pass/ski hire in the package etc plus hotels pay more than the chalet host jobs!!!!!!

meribel is the best resort! i've done two seasons there and going back for more!

see you out there!!!!

Try the Cactus cafe.
They pay through the french system so you dont need a uk national insurance number.
