    We have a female bed available in a 1 bedroom self contained apartment in Falls Creek suitable for someone seeking housekeeping work. We service private guest accommodation and club lodges.

    Happy to negotiate hours between 15-30hrs per week. Could suit someone with part time hours already or someone looking to ski/board and just do minimal shifts (usually Fri/Sat/Mon) to cover their bed. Drivers licence and ability to work in Australia is required. May require snowmobile operation. Full training provided, immediate start.

    Wages are $22-$32 per hour, staff bed is $4000 for the season plus electricity. Apartment is centrally located and a short ski to Falls Express.

    For further information contact Dani info@highcountryproperty.com.au

    Is a female bed wider in the hips than a male bed or does the bed have smaller feet?

    No, the OP states the bed itself is female.
    Not thought about that before.....must get under mine and check what equipment it has :nerd:
    Or does it simply mean a lumpy mattress?

    Is it legal to advertise for a female when a guy can do the same job? does colour matter?

    I'm guessing it's a share room.

    Hmmm, does sound that way, but the original post says "1 bedroom" apartment, so I'm sure that no one would have more than one bed in the apartment....

    1 bedroom. 4 beds. Anyone applying should ask the question.

    I guess a 20 bed dorm is technically "1 bedroom"......

    The majority of staff accommodation on mountain is shared rooms with 2 bunks or twin share
    To have your own room is pretty darn good.

    I would have thought that was the case so seeing a "1 bedroom" apartment with no mention of sharing was quite interesting

    If sharing is the case then mention it in the ad

    Im sure for anyone interested they could enqire ,but the wording of the add is pretty self explanatory ,it does say one bed for a female.
    Obviously for anyone that's never worked in a ski resort it might come as a shock.

    $16K for 12 weeks, that's not too shabby.

    I thought $4000 + electricity, no food, in a shared bedroom sounded a bit high, considering that there would probably only be about 14/15 weeks left.
