We are looking for enthusiastic staff to work with our team in our chalets in Peisey and La Plagne for this coming winter.
The following positions are currently available:
Chalet Host (Chalet Chanterelle, La Plagne) - preferably over 25 years old, have a passion for cooking and be confident to cook for 8 people solely. This is a live-in job so being sociable is also important. This could also work for a couple but only one of you is employed by us and your partner could either help making the job very easy or find employment elsewhere.
Chalet Couple (Chalet Chamois, Peisey, Les Arcs) - our luxury chalet requires capable, very experienced cooks/hosts. Over 24 years old, be efficient and reliable and also love cooking! Accommodation is in an apartment below the chalet. This chalet sleeps 12/14 and has a small indoor pool which must also be looked after - luckily it is super modern and mainly automated!
Chalet Couple (Chalet Barthelemy, Peisey, Les Arcs) - This newly renovated chalet is set out on four floors and has a sauna. It sleeps up to 19 in 8 bedrooms, all ensuite. We have run this chalet for 20 years so it is popular with return guests. You will have the help of a third person especially for changeover day. We require experienced cooks/hosts, passion for cooking and also to be responsible and happy to work independantly. Accommodation for staff is in a separate apartment in the village.
Chalet helper (Chalet Barthelemy, Peisey, Les Arcs) - Over 24 yrs old -no experience required, except be hard working, a love of meeting new people and enjoy snowsports! You will be in charge of cleaning the chalet, serving meals and washing-up, some prep and also a couple of breakfast shifts too. Accommodation is also live-out in an apartment in the village.
We hold cookery courses from October until December at very competitive rates, geared towards cooking in a chalet. We do not guarantee a job but as well as requiring staff ourselves we also have many contacts in the Ski Chalet business.
Firstly, if you are looking for heaps of night life, forget us! Peisey is a small traditional French village and although there are things to do in the evening, it’s not like Meribel or Val D’Isere!! Plagne 1800 is deffinately a younger set with lots of nightlife although it is easy to avoid it aswell!
Working for us is not like the bigger companies - we interview you and we see you on a regular basis as we also live in resort. However, we like our staff to be independant wherever possible, using initiative and common sense. You must be flexible as running ski chalets doesn't always go according to plan!, not get flustered easily and very importantly keep a smile on your face!
We do a week of chalet training prior to letting you loose so plenty of time to iron out any queries! Working in a ski chalet can be very rewarding especially if you have a real passion for cooking but of course, more than anything we know you want to get out on the slopes - we do too!!
If you would like to know more about the positions available please contact us or if you are interested in applying, please send a CV with a 6 day menu to Melanie, please include a veggie menu aswell.
