Location : France, Megeve

The Salary : Competitive salary + tips, travel to and from London, medical insurance, ski and boot hire, full area ski pass, food and good accommodation
I think the fact that Megeve is such a beautiful resort and fairly unknown by the British market so you do feel like you are in France rather than an extension of the UK. We also offer short breaks and ski weekends which is unusual. However, the reason our guests keep coming back to us is our wonderful staff. Guests often comment on how friendly and helpful our staff are. We believe this is because we look after our staff and make sure they are enjoying their season with us. Many remain our lifelong friends and this is reflected in how they in turn look after our guests.
A Typical Day in the Job
We are a small, family run company looking for someone who is lively, outgoing, friendly, hard working and helpful and wants to have a fun season in Megeve!
We need a chalet host/general assistant to work as part of our winter staff team. The job varies day by day depending on what needs doing but will include cleaning the rooms, washing up, waiting on the tables, helping with some food prep, cooking breakfast on some days, maybe manning the bar, restocking the bar, snow clearing, possibly minor DIY, meeting and greeting apartment guests and doing occasional transfers to and from Geneva. You do not need to be able to cover all the jobs listed above, we are looking for several staff members with different skills and we will adapt the jobs to suit.
You will be working as part of a team of 15 members of staff split between 3 chalets and will include resort manger, administrator, maintenance person, chalet managers and chefs.
This is a job where you can have a lot of fun and you get most afternoons off to ski as well as days off during the week but it needs to be done to the highest standard. Megeve is a lovely resort with a big ski area. It is not purpose built and is popular with the French so you do feel like you are in France not an extension of Britain! We ensure that you do get to go skiing as much as possible because that is the point of a ski season! We take great care to look after our staff. If you're happy then our guests are happy and most of our staff have remained our great friends.
