Driver / Plongeur


We are now recruiting for Winter 2019-20.

We employ four Driver/Plongeurs.  They are responsible for chauffeuring guests (staying in certain chalets) around Val d’Isère, and working in the kitchen of Chalet Les Chardons. Driver/Plongeurs spend one week driving followed by one week in the kitchen to give a good balance in the workload.

When working as a driver you will be running YSE’s Land Rover Shuttle. Guests are ferried to and from the lifts, ski school meeting points, shops and bars, etc, in Val d’Isère. This is offered to guests staying in certain chalets between 8.30 and 10.00 in the morning, and 3.30 to 8.00 in the afternoon/evening.

YSE drivers must have a valid and clean UK driving licence and you will need to obtain an international driving licence if employed by YSE. An international driving licence on its own is not sufficient and neither is having experience of driving a small hatchback only. It would be a definite advantage if you had a car mechanic qualification or extensive knowledge of car maintenance. Please do not apply unless you are punctual, patient and self-motivated.

When working in the Les Chardons kitchen you will be washing up, helping prepare food, taking care of deliveries, dealing with refuse, cleaning the kitchen and making sure it is tidy and organised. Experience of kitchen work and cleaning are an advantage.

This position also includes ferrying staff to work (before the Val d’Isère bus service starts), shovelling snow from paths, carrying suitcases to and from chalets, distributing equipment, wine, laundry and logs, etc, and generally helping others when available.

In addition to a good wage (£750 per month), you will be able to ski on six days of the week for variable hours, depending on daily workload. 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. You will have two days off one week and one and a half days off the following week.

If your application to work for YSE is successful you will be required to pay a deposit of £150 when you sign your contract. 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.
