Description

Two chalet hosts needed to join us at our luxury chalet situated in the pretty medieval village of Venosc in the Oisans region in the heart of the French Alps.
 
We are looking for two people with complementary skills to host our guests this summer and also the possibility of employment for the ski season 2017/18. Venosc is one of the two villages that make up Les Deux Alpes and is connected to the resort by a 6 person telecabine.
 
We are situated in the beautiful and spectacular Ecrins National Park. The area has many visitors during the summer season ranging from road cyclists keen to try the numerous famous Alpine climbs, mountain bikers testing themselves on the gnarly trails up in Les Deux Alpes and walkers and climbers exploring the National Park and mountains.
 
Venosc also offers white water rafting, Via Ferrata and climbing, while up in Les Deux Alpes there is summer skiing on Europe’s largest skiable glacier and the opportunity to parapente back down to Venosc

The chalet is a modern, spacious, highly rated (see our Trip Advisor reviews) with 5 en-suite bedrooms. The chalet has an outdoor hot tub, sauna as well as a fitness suite, cinema and games rooms. The kitchen is equipped to commercial standards. Laundry is done in house, but with professional washers and dryers. The chalet also has a spacious comfortable on site staff apartment

Staff will duties will include catering for guests. For the summer this will include hot & cold breakfast options, afternoon cake (and pasta salads for hungry cyclists), three course evening meals. Staff will also be responsible for menu creation, budgeting and a weekly shop.
 
Chalet housekeeping covering cleaning of guest rooms, bathrooms and all communal areas. Hot tub & sauna maintenance and laundry. Other duties will include driving when required as well as help with ad hoc jobs around the chalet

Requirements

We are looking for a couple or two friends with experience of hosting or working in a chalet or the hospitality industry. A friendly outgoing personality is essential to interact with our guests (including children).
 
An ability to work on own initiative and take responsibility is key. Also an enthusiasm to maintain the chalet at a high standard. Working in a chalet environment can mean hard work and some long days, but we aim to balance this with plenty of time off to enjoy the local surroundings and relax. Venosc is a picturesque village with a bar and three restaurants and as such this is not an “in resort” job.
 
However the telecabine from the village to Les Deux Alpes (8 minute journey) runs from June to the end of August and Bourg d’Oisans, the nearest town is a 15 minute drive. There is an unrivalled range of outdoor activities to choose from and experience. For those who enjoy outdoor activities, it is a great environment

We look to offer exceptional food for our guests, so ability to cook to a high standard and experience of catering for up to 12 people is key. Commercial experience is preferred, but cookery school course training or a keen amateur chef would be considered.
 
Fine dining experience is desirable. Previous experience of hosting & housekeeping in a quality chalet or hotel environment as well as an eye for detail and an ability to maintain high standards are key

EU driving licence is essential. Any further driving qualifications would also be looked at favourably. EU Passport / Visa, UK National Insurance number and address is essential. Age 21 years plus. French language skills, Food Hygiene qualifications and Hot tub maintenance experience all welcome
