Our Promise

Company Directors
Andy & Sylvie

We are an unlikely pairing from totally different backgrounds but between us we have the complimentary skills required to run our business effectively. We share a passion for exceptional customer service and are both present in the chalets throughout the winter, alongside Assistant Manager Joe and our handpicked seasonal crew. We are not ski bums looking to simply cover the cost of our own lift passes, but nor are we faceless tour operators in an ivory tower. Host Savoie was created in 2005 and more than a decade later it remains both our passion and our livelihood.

Winter Jobs With Us

For All The Roles

Successful applicants will need to be available for the entire season (December to April) and eligible to work in France under a UK contract. You will need a UK bank account, National Insurance number and a full driving licence.

The following characteristics are vital for all positions on the team:

  • 1/ A keen eye for detail and pride in a job well done.
  • 2/ An ability to work well alone or with others, communicating effectively with colleagues.
  • 3/ A determination to prioritise customer service with a smile ahead of your own free time.

The different roles available for this Winter Season 2017-18

You will be responsible for a chalet sleeping between 12 and 16 people and for the preparation and service of breakfast and evening meals 6 days a week.

You will be required to shop to a budget, cook delicious hearty meals with fresh local produce, keep your chalet spotlessly clean and comply with local hygiene laws.

Whilst formal cooking qualifications are not essential you do need to be a competent and experienced cook with experience in a commercial catering environment.

This vital role combines housekeeping with table service duties and experience in either or both of these areas is desirable. Working alongside a Chalet Host or the Front of House Coordinator you will be responsible for the cleanliness and presentation of the chalets on a daily basis as well as the physically demanding deep cleans of changeover day.

You will also be in constant contact with guests, helping to ensure that they have relaxed and enjoyable breakfasts and evening meals.

Based at our largest Chalet (Chalet Thalassa) you will have overall responsibility for the welfare and enjoyment of up to 24 guests. You will be expected to lead from the front when it comes to housekeeping and table service, whilst also communicating effectively with a Chalet Assistant, a Resort Support staff member and a Chef to ensure the delivery of extra-mile customer service.

With responsibility for accurate record keeping and customer account payments (bar and ski hire sales) the ideal candidate requires some bookkeeping and/or administrative experience. A track record in hospitality is also desirable.

I am interested - What do I do next?

If you think you have what it takes to join our team please let us know which position you are interested in by emailing Sylvie on We will then send you a copy of the relevant job description and details of how to complete your application.
