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.
We are looking for an enthusiastic, bubbly person who is willing to work hard but also wants to enjoy a ski season. The host will be part of a four-person team, consisting of a chalet manager, driver and a chef.
Accommodation, food, ski pass, skis / board hire, UK travel and uniform included. Accommodation is by way of a live-in room that will be shared with the chef – so this can be a friend or partner for the right candidates
5 ½ days a week
Work hours will vary but typically 3 hours in the morning (7 – 10) and 4 hours at night (6 – 10)
Please note: for these roles, you must be a UK citizen with a valid UK National Insurance Number and UK Bank Account. You must also have recently paid tax within the UJ to be eligible for the employment contract.
As the 18/19 winter season slowly approaches, we start to get more and more fantastic job opportunities coming in for experienced seasonaires across France, Switzerland and Austria and Norway. To be considered for our future ski season roles, please send your CV to be added to our database.
Working a ski season is a fantastic opportunity to further your career within the hospitality industry whilst meeting new people and skiing as much as possible. Ski seasons are suitable for individuals who have good previous hospitality of catering experience, who are hard-working, adventurous, and who aren’t afraid of trying something completely new. You don’t need to be able to ski before starting season work, being in the mountains for a whole winter is the perfect time to learn.
Your package will often include travel, accommodation, food, ski hire, lift pass, and a weekly salary.
