The Chef must be passionate about cooking homely food and happy to design his or her own menu within a budget. Although we expect a high level of cooking, we don’t ask our chefs to spend all day in the kitchen, this position is highly sought-after as you will get plenty of time to ski. The food should be a good standard of home cooking, not haute cuisine.
The Chalet host will be professional, presentable and friendly, and their role will involve looking after guests, making them feel welcome and happy in the chalet that will become their home for the week. Your main role will involve maintaining extremely high standards of cleanliness, which will involve daily cleaning throughout the chalet. You will also be “front of house” at meals, ensuring that the quality of the food delivered by the chef is matched by your levels of service.
The roles of both Chalet Hosts will be varied and will include all aspects of housekeeping, service and cooking. As well as this, you will be looking after the spa and there is also a car available that you will use for the shopping which you can also use. The accommodation is downstairs, and you will usually have your own room. Occasionally the family bring a nanny with them and during this time, you will share with the other host.
A generous salary (up to £2,000 per calendar month each DOE) plus full package of lift pass, accommodation, ski hire and all meals
The immediate scope of operations includes eight luxury properties with around 100 beds and a raft of luxury facilities, but we will also be bringing further new developments to the market over the coming years. Everyone involved has a real respect and understanding of traditional luxury hospitality – so you will probably have been involved in five star and fine dining operations in the past – but we also have our eyes on the future and draw our inspiration from hotels, restaurants, bars and clubs the world over. It’s vital that you share our passions.
Full ski package in the wintertime

The ideal candidate:

You will maintain consistently high standards of cooking and hygiene, whilst producing beautifully presented but above all delicious food.
The ability to think on your feet and take initiative in catering to guests’ needs and questions is very important. Our host would be expected to take time to learn about the resort and services on offer so you can answer any queries knowledgeably and confidently.
