Sadly, due to the huge number of forms already received we are unable to take any more applications for Chalet Staff for 2023-24.
We may be able to open our recruitment of Chalet Staff again soon so please check back if you want to apply. However, we cannot guarantee we will need any more applications.
Below are details of the position, when available:
We have two separate jobs for chalet staff.
The first is for those who will work in our chalet hotel Les Chardons as part of a team, or in our large chalet Chalet d’Isère for 16 guests. You will be our liaison with the guests, so the job is perfect for anyone who enjoys meeting people and is naturally smiley and polite, even when dealing with the most demanding guest.
However, the non-cooking positions also involve a lot of cleaning, hoovering and bed-making in the morning (though less than in most jobs with other companies, because we like our staff to be able to go skiing in good time), then tidying up after tea, serving dinner and clearing it away. The work is physical and tiring, our standards are famously high, and if you are the sort who can’t get up before dawn day after day, this job is not for you.
The second job is for those who would like to work in one of our smaller chalets, which range from sleeping 4 to 14 guests, where you are also our liaison with the guests and will be cleaning as described above, but will also cook. This involves making a cake every day, cooking breakfast for your guests and being involved in the dinner service. You do not have to be an experienced cook and will not be expected to make sushi or a complicated sauce but an interest in food is important, as is a basic knowledge of cooking.
If you would like a job that doesn’t just involve cleaning and would like to learn more about food and cooking, this is the role for you. We run a training course before our first guests arrive, teaching you everything you need to know, and you are supported all season by our resort managers and head chef.
In addition to a good wage, you will be able to ski on six days of the week. We provide an allowance for travel to Val d’Isère and travel back after a completed season, accommodation, food whilst you are working, medical insurance, a ski pass and the loan of skis or snowboards (snowboards with a supplement) and boots. There are two days off per week. You will be required to pay a deposit for your accommodation which will be returned at the end of the season so long as you work until the end of the first week of May.
Please note that we can only accept applicants aged 21 and over for this position.
