Chalet couple (Chef & Host)

Our last couple was with us for three seasons and are now continuing their travels. As such we're looking to employ a passionate, friendly, hardworking, active couple to help manage our chalets in Chamonix starting this spring 2019 for the summer and then continuing hopefully throughout winter 19/20. 
You will mainly be working in Chalet Tissieres, our 9 bedroom chalet in Chamonix (sleeps 16 – 28 people), but depending on bookings may also be required to help out in our 7 bedroom Chalet Rubicon in Les Houches (sleeps 16 – 20).

THE CHEF: Your food and your warm personality are an integral part of our chalet holiday experience. You will have full input into menu creation and wine selection to compliment your great food. You will have had significant restaurant standard cooking background and the ability to create and deliver high quality 'fine dining' dishes in winter (6 day meal plan covering breakfast, afternoon tea/cakes & canapes, and a three course meal) and in summer hearty delicious home cooked food for active guests (mixture of buffet service and plated service). You are a team player and will also be required to assist in general chalet duties if and when time allows.

THE HOSTESS/MANAGER will be a warm, friendly, outgoing, well presented, organised individual with an eye for detail. You are responsible for creating a great holiday atmosphere and ensuring the chalet is well presented and meets our high cleaning standards, which involves managing external cleaning staff if and when required. 
Your role involves the coordination of daily bed changes in line with our online booking system, managing dinner numbers, the linen counts in and out to the laundrette, the honesty bar, client check out payments, general cleanliness of the chalet. In WINTER your role involves a higher degree of personal interaction with the clients and you will both be responsible for providing in-valley transfers to and from the slopes in our 8 seater minibuses. This means you will need to be confident and competent drivers.

Applicants must be available from May until end of September 2019 or April 2020. Both of you must have the ability to work in France and have a clean EU driving license for more than 3 years, be of a mature disposition, and be non-smokers.
Package comes with exclusive use of a full board off-site 35 m2 duplex chalet with fire place at 200 meters from the chalet, MBU season pass, free ski equipment hire (winter), use of a company minibus and an excellent weekly salary of up to €210 euros per person per week depending on experience. 
This is an excellent opportunity to strike that perfect work life balance in a fantastic environment.  
We look forward to hearing from you! Renske & Damian
