ESCAPE is a place where freelancers, entrepreneurs, digital nomads and teams come together to work and play. We created a working environment to be productive, and a living space with a community of people who understand your challenges.
Our main goal is to provide best-in-class coliving experience to our guests where the community is at the center. We believe in a world where living and working from beautiful places is a norm. We are driven by four big values that are at the core of our business:
Work With Us
We aim to provide authentic experiences that include high-quality services and infrastructure.
We have each other’s back. We care about what we do, go the extra mile and have fun.
Our community’s well-being and the interactions between each other are at the core of our attention.
Everything we do, we do it with all our heart. We prioritize fun over perfection.
We are looking for volunteers to join us in Switzerland
About the position
Swiss Escape is a place where professionals live and work for a minimum of 1 week, up to 2 months. Our average stay is 1 month. During that time, we ensure that everyone feels welcome and at home, connecting people and organizing events for them to socialize. Your role is essential in creating unforgettable memories.
Your tasks will include:
Checking in and checking out residents
Onboard new guests into the community, explaining to them how the house operates, fostering connections among residents.
Being the main contact person for any questions, concerns, or problems that a resident may have.
Occasionally setting up the bedroom for a new resident. While we have professional staff who handle this on weekends, when a resident checks in during the week, you’ll be asked to ensure the room is clean and the bed is set up. You may also be occasionally asked to wash the bed linens.
Regularly checking inventory in the house, such as toiletries, office supplies, and kitchen supplies.
Ensuring that the houses remain clean and tidy throughout the week. We have systems in place to ensure residents contribute to maintaining a well-organized and comfortable living environment. It is your responsibility to remind them to do so whenever you notice someone falling short.
Organizing and leading two community events per week: one social and one professional event. Our social events include hikes, dinners, board game evenings, movie nights, and other fun activities. Our professional events involve skill-sharing, small presentations, masterminds, and the like.
Creating weekly content for Instagram stories and posts. Documenting (with pictures and small videos) what happens around the house or during events/outside activities.
Assisting our team in other areas of the business when required.
*We require a commitment of up to 15 hours per week. You will mainly work in the afternoons, evenings, and on weekends, with flexible hours.
Who are we looking for?
You are a social butterfly - yes, an extrovert. You genuinely enjoy spending time with people. You’re very good at connecting and interacting with others.
You are open-minded. You love meeting people from all over the world and know how to adapt to different cultures and backgrounds.
You have a natural talent for understanding the needs of others. You are a good listener and you can empathize with others. You know how to solve people’s problems, whether big or small, to make their stay more enjoyable.
You are adventurous and love spending time in nature. During your free time, you love nothing more than hiking & mountain biking in summer and skiing or snowboarding in winter.
You are motivated and organized. You take the lead when it comes to planning small gatherings or trips with your friends. You naturally enjoy being the leader of a group and organizing activities & excursions for others.
You like clean and tidy spaces. You have an eye for anything that is broken around the house and needs fixing. You will be asked to collaborate with our professional cleaner on a weekly basis.
Ideally, you have a side project or job that keeps you busy. As this is not a full time position, you’ll have time to work on your own projects.
You are a digital nomad or interested in trying this lifestyle. The idea of travelling around the world and working from anywhere excites you.
You are fluent in English. This is our official language in the house and within our team.
Being able to speak some French is a plus but not necessary.
*We do not provide visa assistance; you should have the right to reside in Switzerland for the requested duration of the stay.
