We are now recruiting for the 2017/18 season and are looking for Chalet Chefs and Hosts to run our catered chalets as an individual or in a couple. We pride ourselves on the high quality of customer service that we offer & the gourmet food that we serve. Chalet Chefs must have previous catering experience, ideally in a professional kitchen although this isn’t essential. Chalet hosts must be able to deliver a high level of customer service and cleanliness.

Chalet chefs & hosts will work closely together running a chalet of between 10 - 18 people. It's important to work well together & run the chalet as a team. This is a really important role within our company as our guest's enjoyment comes down to the team in the chalet. It's also a great opportunity to meet lots of interesting people and get loads of ski time!
The chalet chef will be responsible for the cooking and preparation of breakfast hot options, afternoon tea & a 4 course evening meal 6 days of the week as well as any children's meals required. They will be expected to demonstrate stock control & the chef will do the weekly food shop within budget. The chalet host will work with the chef to cater for the guests and both will maintain a high standard of service and cleanliness within the chalet at all times.
Together, a typical day in the chalet will run like the following:
Breakfast is a buffet style continental selection with a different daily hot option, this involves getting up early, laying out the buffet & offering guests their morning tea or coffee. Then serving the hot option (such as poached eggs or pancakes) with porridge served daily also if required. While breakfast is on you will make a cake that is then left out for the guests for afternoon tea.
After breakfast service, you will do a once round' the bedrooms, making beds, tidying up and a quick clean of the bathrooms. Common areas may also need to be tidied/hovered etc too. Some chalets will also require shuttle runs to the ski lifts too.
This will take you until around 10.30 in the morning, then its time to snowboard/ski!
You will normally return to the chalet around 4pm to serve vin chaud, light the fire and start preparing evening dinner for service at 7.30pm. Dinner is a 4 course evening meal: starter, main, dessert, cheese board & coffee. We pride ourselves on good wholesome and well-presented food.
On changeover days, you will be required to turn around the chalet from the previous to the coming weeks guests with a very thorough clean. You then welcome new guests with bubbly and canapes.
So basically, you will be required to host a dinner party every evening in the chalet (with one day off!!) in a professional but fun and friendly way and ensure that Treeline's high quality standards and customer service are maintained throughout.
We are an independent chalet company that prides itself on excellent staff, excellent service & excellent food. We want our guests to have the best holiday possible and we require our staff to ensure this happens every week. And of course, we want all our staff to have an awesome winter! We offer a competitive all inclusive package for all our staff with accommodation, PDS lift pass, mobile phone, mountain insurance, travel bursary and much more all included!
