Now recruiting for winter 2017/18
Our guests have been looking forward to their ski holiday for a long time, and it's your responsibility to make sure their memories of the chalet are wonderful. You'll create a welcoming environment, provide fantastic meals and go the extra mile to make our guests feel special.
Our catering standards are high. Please click here to see our sample menu.
Want to apply? If you feel you meet the skills and experience listed below please download an application form (click on the link at the bottom of the page) and email it back to us on email@example.com.
What we’re looking for:
Professional, friendly and adaptable staff who have a passion for cooking and entertaining. You'd be looking after up to 10 people on your own, or up to 16 people if working with a partner so you have to be up for a challenge! Chalet Hosting is not for the faint-hearted so candidates with catering experience are preferred.
Couples applying to work together can use the same menu as long as both parties are able to cook all the dishes. Please complete a form each so we can see all of your individual skills & experience in detail!
NB: We don’t have vacancies for non-catering hosts.
Watch Susie's video on why she feels part of something special and how Le Ski guests return again and again because of the staff.
For six days a week you'll provide a delicious and prompt cooked breakfast, bake tempting cakes for afternoon tea and prepare three delectable courses for our guests' evening meal. Of course the food has to be excellent, but it is the service that keeps our guests coming back for more; we expect our staff to go the extra mile to make guests feel welcome and relaxed. It goes without saying that the chalet has to be spotless and efficiently run. You'll work closely with the Chalet Manager whose job it is to ensure our standards are kept high.
Though not essential, we highly recommend attending a Chalet Host catering course. Below is a list of links for cookery schools we work with.
The Orchards School of Cookery
The Abinger Cookery School
The Hive Cookery School
The Wyld Cookery School
The Avenue Cookery School
