We are proud of what we do and genuinely care about our guests and everyone we work with.

SINGLE CHALET HOSTS
As a single chalet host you will be responsible for your own chalet and you will look after between 8 to 10 guests
- The ability to cook meals for 8 to 10 guests from scratch using fresh ingredients and present them stylishly using a set menu.
- You must have the confidence to work in an open plan kitchen along with a calm approach to create a welcoming homely environment

- You must be adaptable, outgoing and friendly with an eye for detail and most importantly have the ability to maintain high standards in all aspects of your role.
As a chalet couple you will be working in one of our larger chalets looking after between 14 to 16 guests
This position is for either an established couple or two friends who know they work well together. One of you will be the chalet cook taking the main responsibility for the chalet kitchen and preparation of the food and the other will assist in the kitchen and act as “front of house” and you both will work alongside each other as a team. You will both assist each other in the day to day aspect of running the chalet ensuring the high standards of Mountain Heaven are kept.
The skills required are the same as the single chalet host above but you must be able to work and live together harmoniously, supporting and respecting one another. Team work is what this job is all about.
