Description

We are looking to fill a position of Driver/Chalet Helper in Morzine for this winter season.

Based at one of our Morzine chalets you will be a vital member of the chalet team working closely with the chalet hosts. While the Chalet Hosts are primarily in charge of the cooking and cleaning of the chalets, your key role is transporting the guests to and from the ski slopes, help with getting guests organised with ski hire and being a point of contact for all ski related questions, airport transfers on changeover days and then general help in the chalet.

Our in resort service involves shuttling the guests from the chalet to the slopes in the mornings from 8.30 to 10.30 & afternoon pick ups from the slopes from 3.30pm onwards. As well as actually driving the guests you will need to organise the guests in a nice but efficient manner so that the service runs as smoothly as possible.

Our main transfer day is on a Sunday when you will be required to do 2 trips to the airport, you will most likely have to do a trip on Saturday & one or 2 mid week when we have short break stays. You will be responsible for  looking after your van, keeping it clean, full of diesel, checking oil & that water is filled for wipers.

In terms of being the point of contact for all ski related questions, we would need you to quickly gain good knowledge of the local area, ski lift opening times, best places to ski/board, good beginner areas, be able to advise on restaurants on the mountain and also help guests at the ski hire shops that we use & be helpful in putting them in contact with ski schools if they require lessons. You would need to keep guests informed on the weather on a daily basis and any events on in the mountain.

General help in the chalet involves helping the chalet hosts with things such as setting the table for breakfast & dinner, serving both breakfast and dinner. Serving guests canapés and aperitif pre dinner, clearing tables & washing up. Keeping the honesty bar stocked, maintaining the hot tub, setting the fire, snow clearing, being in charge of wine supplies, being in charge of keeping the garage areas where skis and boots are stored clean and tidy and just generally being an extra pair of hands in the mornings (approx 7.30 -11am)  and during evening shift (approx 6.30pm-10pm).

If you want to spend a season in one of the best resort in the Alps, work in a lovely chalet as part of a brilliant team, have a full day off a week plus at 3-4 other days when you can get out for 4-5 hours a day on the slopes and are the sort of person who goes the extra mile to look after guests then please apply!

Requirements

We are looking for candidates who have:
  • Stamina and are hard working
  • Excellent organisational & time management skills
  • An outgoing personality and enjoy dealing with people
  • A good sense of humor & maintain a smile and cheery disposition at all times
  • Experience of driving (ideally mini-buses)
  • Have a "can do" "no problem" attitude
IMPORTANT

Due to Swiss regulations for picking up guests at the airport all drivers must now have either a professional driving qualification such as a Rospa qualification or 2 years professional driving experience, (the 24 months can be split over 10 years, so an accumulation of experience) as long as we can have a letter or letters of proof from a former employer/s to say the job involved driving. The driving can be as a delivery driver or any job where you were required to drive as part of your work.

Please note that we are unable to employ any non-EU citizens.
