Chalet Host - Position Filled
At Le Ski we have a range of chalets, catering from 2-23 guests. We do accept couples' applications for our larger chalets.
As a Chalet Host you will create a welcoming home-from-home for your guests. Preparing and serving fantastic home-made meals and going the extra mile with customer service to make sure their holiday is one to remember.
Running your own chalet, you will be on hand to ensure guests relax and enjoy their home-from-home. Catering for up to 10 guests alone or in a pair or team in our larger chalets.
We look for candidates with previous professional catering experience or those who have completed a chalet cookery course.
Each day you will prepare and serve delicious cooked breakfasts, afternoon tea, canapés and three course dinners. All meals are home made.
Dishes should taste delicious and be excellently presented. Click here to see a sample menu.
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.
Guests are excited to meet you and welcome you into their group for the week. You are encouraged to dine with guests during their stay and help make their holiday memorable!
A typical day
You will start work daily around 7am in time to cook and serve breakfast to the guests at 8am.
After breakfast, you will prepare afternoon tea, clean the bedrooms and communal areas and do some preparation for the evening meal.
Finishing around 11am, you're free to ski or do as you please during the day!
Afternoon tea is laid out for guests to help themselves.
In the evening, you will return to work in time to prepare and serve canapés and fizz before a three course home cooked meal.
It's a real dinner party atmosphere in the evening and you will be encouraged to join in with your guests.
Many will invite you to dine with them or join them for a glass of fizz!
Unlike other chalet companies, you do not have to shop yourselves. The chalet managers are in charge of budgeting and ordering food and wine so all you have to do is collect it from our in-resort stores and take a weekly stock check.
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 have a record of achieving excellent guest feedback so we set high standards for catering and customer service.
Organised - there's a lot of multi-tasking with chalet hosting, it's not an easy job!
We will be looking for relevant work experience in cooking, cleaning and customer service.

- The Orchards School of Cookery
- The Avenue Cookery School

- The Hive Cookery School
You must hold an EU passport and have a UK bank account.
