We have been running Reach4thealps since 2002 and have now a lovely selection of high quality catered and self-catered properties in Morzine. At Reach4thealps we have a lot of returning guests and we are all about offering great service and having a great team to help us to that. Last year we created the Positions of "Chalet Crew" as full time positions that are a mix of both Housekeeping/Cleaning and Chalet Host roles: cleaning the self-catered properties at the weekends and then helping out with mid stay cleans in the catered chalets and stepping in for the Chalet Hosts to cover cover breakfast for the Chalet Host on their morning off and also cover dinner service for the Chalet Host on their evening off.

The "Crew" were a great addition to the Reach team and is a great opportunity for those looking to have a full time role but who perhaps don't have the catering/ chefing experience required to be a full time chalet host.

The work will involve

* Manage guests staying at our self-catered properties, meet and greet them and deal with any questions/issues they may have during their stay.
* Changeover the self-catered properties maintaining a high standard of cleanliness, working quickly & efficiently to ensure properties are ready in a timely manner.
* Keep updated with guest information via your online report
* Keep updated with the arrivals & departures of your guests via the online transfer sheet
* Manage the cleaning supplies for the self-catered properties.
* Prepare & cook breakfast & afternoon tea for our catered chalets when providing cover for chalet hosts mornings off.
* Prepare & cook canapes and dinner, wash up and clear away dinner for our catered chalets when providing cover for chalet hosts evening off. 
* Mid stay changeovers at catered properties when we have short breaks
* Maintain hot tubs (training provided), clear snow.
* Driving guests to and from some of the chalets to the slopes (mini bus driver training provided)


This job is very varied and requires people who can keep calm, think on their feet and be able to use initiative and manage their time. You need to have previous experience cleaning and have very high attention to detail and also enjoy working as part of a team as you need to be able to walk into various chalets and get on with lots of different team members. You need to be welcoming and enjoy meeting people and want to help guests enjoy their holiday and have a "nothing it too much trouble attitude". In the hospitality industry things do happen, flights get delayed, guests & staff get ill, injuries can happen so we all need to work as a team and realise some days may end up being longer than others and step in to help out.

If you want to join an excellent team and aren't scared of hard work and you want to make the most of all the skiing and boarding, get in touch!Please email Gina with a cover letter explaining why you are suitable for this position and why you believe you will be a great addition to our team,


Looking for presentable, trustworthy, reliable, hardworking considerate candidates who have cleaning/housekeeping experience and have a nice, friendly, enthusiastic but professional manner for welcoming guests and helping them with any queries and who can use their initiative to organise themselves so that the cleaning gets done thoroughly but quickly. Candidates must be happy working as part of team to share out work and pull together when necessary.
