  • Description

    Description

    We are a family run business with approximately 20 employees currently (half permanent and half seasonal for summer). We have all different ages of employees and everyone is very friendly and fun! We are currently looking for French-speaking staff to help us welcome and check in guests and answer questions about our activities. Since most of our guests are French speaking, being fluid in French (with some English) is a requirement for this position. Note we have a need for staff from mid-August to mid-October quite urgently. We do not not have shorter stays available.

    *️️*️️ we require that you have a valid work and travel permit for Canada

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We are in Sutton, Quebec (the French part of Canada), but our staff and village are fairly bilingual. Our guests are primarily French-speaking so some French would be an asset. While being here you will have a chance to learn and appreciate the French-Canadian love of natu and the outdoors as well as learning some French (and if you are French-speaking some English). This is a culturally rich area of Quebec with one of the highest concentrations of artists, musicians and other artists. We are also about 1h30 from Montreal, and 1h15 from Sherbrooke, with plenty of festivals, museums, and other cultural activities.

    We are an award winning private outdoor centre in Sutton, Quebec with eco lodging and people powered activities. We have a beautiful mountain side setting with 365 acres and beautiful views and a working farm with shaggy Highland Cattle. We have several positions available until end of October. Positions are multi-faceted and each day will consist of many different tasks, most of them with direct contact with our 200 customers in cabins and rustic campsites or the several hundred that come each day for the wide range of activities that take place on site.
