We are a luxury chalet company, based in the resort of St Martin de Belleville in the 3 Valleys ski area.  We operate 5 boutique ski chalets each with chef, host and resort assistant/chauffeur teams.  We have a staff of 20, including management.  We are an owner operated business, now in our fifth year and we have developed a reputation for a luxurious yet friendly catered chalet service that is tailored to our guests’ needs.  We have a passion for delivering the highest levels of service to our clients and our success depends on us finding the right team who share our passion.  We are seeking professional, motivated people with the desire to deliver the best possible standards.

The resort assistant/chauffeur’s key role is to provide an effective and comprehensive driving service for all clients, as well as supporting the chalet teams to effectively run their chalet.  You must therefore have extremely high standards and take pride in your work.  This will require a strong work ethic and an ability to self-motivate and manage responsibilities without constant guidance.  As a chauffeur, you will be a regular point of contact for our guests on a daily basis so you must have a passion for providing excellent service and always putting the guests’ needs first.  Being such a client facing role, you must have great social and conversational skills and enjoy working as part of a team. 

You will be fully supported by our management team, who will meet with you regularly and make regular checks on chalets, vehicles etc.  You therefore have the full support of management at all times if there are problems that need sorting out; however, our employees will be expected to work on their own initiative and be capable of using their organisational skills to ensure the guests’ needs are always met – our employees are our biggest asset and the face of our company and make a real difference to our success.
