WHAT TO EXPECT WORKING AS A CHALET MANAGER
If you have hospitality management experience or ready to step up into your first management role, then the role of Chalet Manager could be the perfect role for you. As a Chalet Manager, you remain a hands on team member but with additional managerial responsibilities. A Chalet Manager can have 2 different meanings depending on the company, some Chalet Managers will not work in a chalet but will oversee the running on a number of chalets. You will be the line manager of the staff in each of your chalets, you will deal with day to day issues and you will be expected to step into any of your chalets to cover with cooking or cleaning as required.
Other companies, generally the higher level 5* chalet companies, will have a Chalet Manager dedicated to each chalet. You will be a key member of the chalet team and will be expected to assist the chalet host with the daily housekeeper and table service. All Chalet Managers will often manage the staff rota, the chalet accounts, staff training and development, liaise with suppliers and being the first point of contact for any guest related enquiries or complaints.
With Chalet Management experience you are often able to progress into Resort Manager roles in the future seasons should you return.
