We are recruiting for an independent, owner-run catered chalet business operating solely in the small Reberty Village, a piste-side collection of properties in the heart of the Three Valleys. Our chalets are located at high altitude (2000m) and are truly ski-in/ski-out. Each of our 4 chalets is run by a team of 3 staff, plus management, who collectively provide a 5* service to our guests who visit us from all over the world and very frequently return.

 

Job Description

We are looking for highly creative and passionate Professional Chefs to help build on our existing reputation as providers of superior quality food and wine with a commitment to outstanding service. The very best food and wine is a key component of our offering and has been a factor to maintaining a high number of returning visitors.

 

With a real focus on quality, we expect our staff to have the same values and dedication to service excellence as we do. As a Chalet Chef, you will be responsible for all food preparation and cooking to include breakfast, afternoon tea and the evening main meal: canapés, 3-course dinner and cheese board.

 

We also offer our guests with children under a certain age a children’s dinner, which consists of an earlier, simpler meal. You will also be expected to cater for all dietary requirements in the chalet.

 

Teamwork is hugely important to us and you, along with two Chalet Hosts will be responsible for the daily running of the chalet and delivering outstanding customer service, without exception. All team members are considered as front of house. The overall requirement will be to ensure that guests enjoy their fine dining experience and all other aspects of their catered chalet holiday through being as attentive, professional and engaging as possible at all times, in addition to serving superb food.

 

You must be a team player, enjoy socialising and delivering excellent customer service, have a “can-do attitude” and remain professional at all times. The chalet is an open-kitchen environment, so you must have the social skills to deal with any and every guest.
