Single Chalet Host

We are looking to recruit a single Chalet Host for our catered chalets, Chalet Hibou and Chalet Chouette (each sleep 8-10). There are two chalets in the same location with a team of 3 staff.

You will work closely with the other hosts sharing the cooking as we work on a set menu so it is a nice opportunity for single applicants who want to be part of a small team.

It is ESSENTIAL that you have previous catering experience, whether it is professional catering experience in a restaurant or hotel environment or having been a Chalet Host previously (where cooking rather than assisting a chef was required). The role requires someone who gets on well with people from all walks of life, can cook to a high standard, is well organised, takes pride in doing the job properly with great attention to detail, has a lot of energy and can work as part of a team.

You will be required to provide breakfast with a daily cooked option, a cake for afternoon tea, hot and cold canapes and a 3-course evening meal, as well as cleaning the chalet daily and changing over the chalet on the day of departure/arrival of the guests. In addition, there will be some weeks when we have guests staying for a short break and the chalet needs to be changed over mid-week but additional help to do the changeover will be given on these weeks.

  • Laying out continental breakfast & cook a daily hot option
