When it comes to enjoying the Rockies, Banff and Lake Louise are the popular choices, for good reason. But we Edmontonians know better. With stunning views, amazing wildlife, incredible adventures and tranquillity you expect from a mountain town, Jasper is the less crowded yet equally exquisite equivalent of the former two. And if you find yourself retreating to this beautiful town from time to time and wonder how wonderful life would be here, you are in for a treat. Fairmont Jasper Lodge Park is currently hiring.

An offering of the Accor Group, the Fairmont recently announced job openings at its Jasper resort. TBH, living amidst bountiful nature and spectacular views, away from the city chaos is reason enough for us to consider working at Fairmont. But they have a lot more to offer.

Working with Fairmont has its fair share of irresistible perks. Here are 6 of many—

Comfy Accommodation

Given that it’s a gorg and desirable mountain town, housing here could sometimes get a little heavy on the bank account. But not if you’re working with Fairmont. The hotel chain provides employees with subsidized, clean and safe housing. It’s not mandatory to stay here, but with what you’re getting for this price point, it kind of is the obvious choice.

Affordable Meals

Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge has an in-house staff cafeteria that serves fresh, hot meals for its colleagues. Employees can get these delicious meals at a subsidized price, as they dine with colleagues for lunch or after work. And if you’re in the mood for indulgence, the town of Jasper boasts of an exceptional culinary experience with great restos, bars and cafes.

Work-Play Balance

When you’re surrounded by all things fun and adventurous, you don’t have to wait for the weekend to enjoy them. You can do it pre-and post-work, all week long… And that’s exactly what you’d be doing when working for Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge. Hike and bike the beautiful trails, revel in the beauty of the starry sky, marvel at the shimmering Northern Lights— whatever be your idea of post-work chill, this place has it all.

Hotel Stay Perks

For times when you need a break and want to enjoy the other side of the experience, Fairmont has you covered there too. As a Fairmont employee, you can stay in any mountain location­— Fairmont Banff Springs, Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise and Fairmont Chateau Whistler— for a mere $99/night. Plus, you get some seriously dope discounts on all Fairmont and Accor properties worldwide.
