We are looking to recruit 2 single Chalet Hosts for smaller sister catered chalets, Chalets Chouette & Hibou (both sleep 8-10). To run these chalets there will be a team of 3, two Chalet Hosts and one Chalet Host-Driver.

The chalet hosts will work closely together sharing the cooking as we work on a set menu so it is a nice opportunity for single applicants who want to be part of a small team and also may suit friends who want to do a season together but also have a bit of space & independence in running their own chalet.

It is ESSENTIAL that you have previous catering experience, whether it is professional experience, having been a Chalet Host previously or you are an accomplished home cook who has in ADDITION attended a cookery course. While we do provide a full training week on our menu and the running of a chalet, you need to already be a very competent cook. The roles require someone who gets on well with people from all
walks of life, can cook to a high standard, is well organised, takes pride in doing the job properly with great attention to detail, has a lot of energy and can work as part of a team.

You will be required to provide breakfast with a daily cooked option, a cake for afternoon tea, hot and cold canapes and a 3-course evening meal, as well as cleaning the chalet daily and changing over the chalet on the day of departure/arrival of the guests.

To be a great Chalet Host you need to like people and enjoy welcoming them into your chalet and creating a warm friendly atmosphere whilst keeping the chalet spotlessly clean, ensuring the bathrooms & bedrooms are cleaned daily. The role requires the chalet host to keep within budget, do a weekly stock check and to do the grocery shopping. We have great systems for online shopping and for calculating the shopping based on the number of guests staying, so it takes a lot of the pain out of shopping and budgeting!

There are 2 days off a week (one full day off, and then 2 half days, a morning shift off and then an evening shift off but on different days).  

There will be some short break weeks when the chalet needs to be changed over mid-week, additional help with the cleaning will be given on these weeks.

Do you have a real flair for cooking and enjoy looking after people? Do you want to work for a friendly, family run company where you are not just a number but a vital team member? Are you organised and capable of running your own chalet? Do you want to run a stunning chalet that you can be proud to welcome your guests into? Do you fancy spending your winter in the resorts of Morzine and Les Gets and being able to make the most of exploring the amazing ski area of the Portes Du Soleil?

If the answer is yes then please apply for one of our Chalet Host positions by clicking on the apply button now to make an online application. 

Please note that we are unable to employ any non-EU citizens.


What kind of person are we looking for?

We are looking for individuals who have either done a ski season hosting a chalet before, or have professional catering experience or who are experienced home cooks but who have also attended a cookery course (minimum of a weeks duration) who have a genuine love and interest in food & flair for cooking & excellent attention to detail.

You need to be:
  • Hard working & have stamina
  • Be well organised and be good at managing your time
  • Be an excellent cook
  • Outgoing and enjoy dealing with people
  • A cheery person with a positive attitude
