We are a luxury chalet company, based in the resort of St Martin de Belleville in the 3 Valleys ski area. We operate 9 boutique ski chalets each with chef, host and resort assistant/driver teams. We have a staff of 30, including management. We are an owner operated business, now in our sixth 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.
We require an experienced chef with a fine dining background (ideally with Michelin/AA Rosette experience). Our chef will preferably be classically trained and should be passionate about preparing stunningly presented and truly mouth-watering dishes. They will be expected to use their experience and flair to develop and deliver creative menus of the highest standard, whilst remaining entirely flexible with regard to the individual guests’ requirements.
You will be fully supported by our management team, who will regularly visit each chalet to liaise with the guests and to
ensure that the White Mountain Chalets product is being delivered consistently across all chalets. You will therefore have full support of management 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.
