You will clean the chalet daily, change towels mid-week and carry out a more thorough deep clean on changeover day. It's hard work so a decent level of fitness is a must.

Customer service

You will get to know your guests really well during their stay. Guests often leave feedback remarking how their Chalet Host made their stay special and memorable. 

A typical day

You will start work around 7am to cook and serve breakfast to your guests at 8am. After breakfast, you will prepare afternoon tea, clean the bedrooms and communal areas and do some preparation for the evening meal.

Afternoon tea is laid out for guests to help themselves to. You're then free to ski and explore the mountains during the day! 

In the evening, you will return to work to prepare and serve canapés and fizz before a three course, home cooked meal. It's a relaxed dinner party atmosphere in the evening.

Unlike other chalet companies, you do not have to shop for food supplies yourself. The chalet managers are in charge of budgeting and ordering food and wine so all you have to do is take a weekly stock check and collect it from our in-resort stores.

An ideal candidate for this job is...

Personable - you need to be a real people person. Chatting and getting to know guests to make them feel at home.

Professional - we are proud to receive a lot of excellent guest feedback so we set high standards for catering and customer service.

Organised - Chalet Hosting is very hard work and requires a lot of planning and multi-tasking.

The Orchards School of Cookery 
The Avenue

You should be available from late November to mid-April.
