We are now recruiting for Winter 2019-20.

We employ a number of Chalet Assistants to work alongside Chalet Chefs in our larger chalets (sleeping between 8 and 16 people).

Chalet Assistants are responsible for cleaning and overseeing the day-to-day running of the chalets. You will be required to make beds, clean bedrooms and bathrooms, polish mirrors, hoover, set and clear the table, serve meals, load and empty the dishwasher, wash up heavy pots and pans, etc. Some Chalet Assistants turn out to be sufficiently competent cooks to run their own chalet, but most spend the whole winter cleaning and serving. It is hard and repetitive work, but there’s a great team spirit!

Applicants must be conscientious, reliable and cheerful, and enjoy working as part of a team. Hospitality work in either a hotel, restaurant or similar establishment is an advantage.

In addition to a excellent wage (£750 per month), you will be able to ski for up to six hours on six days of the week and will have two days off one week and one and a half days off the next (when you will have  unlimited time to ski! We provide travel to and from the UK to Val d’Isère, accommodation, food, medical insurance, a ski pass, and the loan of skis or snowboard and boots.

If your application is successful you will need to pay a deposit of £150 when you sign your contract with us. This will be refunded on 31 January 2020 so long as you are still employed by YSE.

Please read the Recruitment Overview before applying to work for YSE. You must have a UK passport, a UK National Insurance Number and have worked in the UK, being paid through PAYE, before you apply.
