We are a looking for a chalet host who is friendly, eager to learn, hard working, has an eye for detail and is willing to get stuck in.  NB You must be an EU passport holder i.e. issued in France, Spain, Ireland etc. or have a french working permit which you can get with a Canadian or Australian passport but not at the moment with a UK passport.  Please do not apply if you only have a UK passport as sadly right now we can't get the relevant paperwork to be able to employ you.   We are a family run company and take good care of our staff.  We have a variety of different jobs, all involving the basics outlined below but we have scope for specialising in particular ways.  There is lots of time to get out and ski which is after all one of the main reasons for doing a ski season. Megeve is an excellent place to spend a ski season with a huge ski area, there's great off-piste and you get plenty of time off to be able to enjoy your skiing.  We work as a small team so there's always people to head on up the mountains with. 

The Job

  • Waiting on tables, washing up and housekeeping
  • Being a friendly, smiley face for our guests and making sure that they have the best holiday possible
  • Assisting in other areas in resort from apartment cleaning to snow clearing, minor maintenance, cooking breakfast when the chef is off, a flexible attitude is required.
  • Possible specialisms within the chalet host role - looking after our apartment guests (french speaking required), transfers (driving experience required), oversight of maintenance (strong maintenance with a trade background required)

Stanford Skiing's Setup:

  • Two chalet-hotels, one chalet and apartments in Megève
  • A team of around 15, including 5 members of staff for each chalet-hotel and 2 for the chalet

What we offer

  • Competitive salary plus tips
  • Travel to and from UK, food and good accommodation
  • Ski / board and boot hire, full area (445km) ski pass and proper time off to use it!
  • A chance to influence your working environment and be part of decisions that will make your job and the guest experience better
  • Ski lessons for those who haven’t skied before or who want to improve

We ensure that your hard work is rewarded with what you’re here to enjoy: skiing. Megève is a great resort with a large ski area and fantastic off-piste. We like to ensure that our staff are happy, partly because happy staff makes happy guests but also because we are out in Megève for most of the season and we like to work with people who are enjoying themselves.  A lot of our staff have remained our very good friends.


  • EU passport holder (i.e. issued in France, Spain, Ireland, Hungary, etc.) or other passport holder with french work permit (normally only Canadian or Australian).  Please do not apply if you only have a UK passport.
  • A can do attitude and a friendly demeanour is the most important thing
  • Housekeeping and waiting experience
  • An ability to get on with people
  • French speaking, maintenance skills or driving experience also useful
