ALL POSITIONS NOW FILLED FOR THIS SEASON
We are looking for motivated and enthusiastic chalet couples to be the heart and soul of one of our 3 catered chalets in the French Alps. Couples must be established enough to be able to work closely with each other for the whole winter season (December to April).
You will be ambassadors of Ski Hiver so you must always be approachable, possess common sense and a high level of customer service. We are a small family-run business with a hands-on approach to supporting our team, but you must also be able to problem solve at short notice and work on your own initiative.
We are not looking trained chefs, but you must have a passion for cooking, are aware of dietary requirements with proven experience of hosting large groups up to 22. We love our food so we will make sure to try your best recipes during the recruitment process!
Each couple must be able to support each other in hosting our guests, be highly organised and possess a positive attitude and outlook towards maintaining the chalet to high standards: daily maintenance and weekly complete change over on Saturdays.
- Set-up breakfast, daily cake, complete dinner service in the evening
- Maintaining strict hygiene and health and safety levels.
- Daily cleaning of communal areas and weekly cleaning of chalet on changeover day
- Clearing snow and ice from pathways to maintain a safe place to walk
- Any ad hoc duties that may arise
Working hours cover breakfast, morning baking time and dinner so you will have plenty of time to enjoy the snow!
We offer a UK contract, competitive salary, 2 days off per week, accommodation, meals, ski passes, equipment hire, health and ski insurance and holiday pay for the entire season. You must be eligible to work in the UK without restriction.
We recruit with face to face interviews held in London or over Skype at a mutually convenient time usually until end of October so please send us your CVs for consideration.
Working for Ski Hiver
Working for us is not like working for the bigger companies - we interview you directly and we support you on a regular basis during the season as we also live in resort.
However, we do like our staff to work independently wherever possible using their initiative and oodles of common sense. You must be flexible, hardworking, not get flustered easily and most importantly, keep a smile on your face at all times as running a ski chalet doesn't always go according to plan!
We do a week of chalet training prior to letting you loose so there will be plenty of time to iron out any concerns or queries and also to test drive the menu and add your suggestions. Working in a ski chalet can be very rewarding especially if you have a real passion for cooking and hosting dinner parties and, just as importantly, a passion for skiing, snowboarding and mountain sports!
