    Opportunity for Growth.

    Mons Royale is a fast-growing brand in the action and adventure sports space with lots of opportunities for career development, within and outside NZ.

    Mountain Town Lifestyle & Flexibility.

    We are based in mountain towns because we value time spent in the mountains and want to enable and encourage our staff to achieve a work/life balance. While we do work hard and put in the hours, we also believe in the value of having a life outside of the workplace. This role will be based in our brand home, Wanaka.

    We value people and our team.

    Company culture is important to us. We're often together in the mountains, or catching up for a happy-hour bike ride. With offices in Squamish, Innsbruck, and our hometown of Wanaka, Mons is comprised of a globally diverse workforce. We hire great people from a wide variety of backgrounds and therefore all qualified applicants receive consideration for employment.

    Embracing the entrepreneurial spirit.

    Being a part of a fast-growing brand means that there’s never a dull moment and that you’ll likely be involved in a lot of opportunities that may fall outside of your typical job description. Whether it be helping with an event or being a part of cross-functional meetings, there are always new things to learn.

    Competitive Salary, Seasonal Product Allowance & Industry Discounts.
