We are a holiday apartment complex with 11 units with a capacity of 53 people.  We are on 3.5 acres of grounds and surrounded by the Alpes Maritimes National Park.  However, we are also close to towns and villages so we are not remote.

We came here as caretakers on a 10 month contract working 20 hours a week we got this position through housecarers.  We are now the Managers so we lead by example as we have a great deal of experience at this complex.  We have, through another organisation, plenty of help around here, however we need right hand people to work alongside them and supervise/organise any work that needs doing during the Winter.

We are English, Tony is from London and Valerie is from Liverpool. We are easy going and have a good sense of humour.  We have been here for 3 years.

  • painting skills
  • organised and can use their own initiative

Your job here would to be our right hand person(s).  We have other people who come to work for us.  Your job would be to organise and supervise them and also do the work along with them.  You would be dealing with people of different nationalities, ages and cultures.  You have to be a people person, patient and organised. The work is as listed above, whatever we require.  There are not many guests in the winter, it will be mainly be the maintenance of the place. If we go away you will be trained to be the caretakers here during our absence.
