Chalet Couple Vacancy
I thought I’d get in touch as my partner Justin and I are looking for a chalet couple vacancy for the coming winter season (2019/20), ideally in Switzerland or Austria.
We both have extensive experience in hospitality and catering. I have mainly worked front of house roles, though I am trained to work in a professional kitchen and have a passion for pastry/baking and good knowledge of housekeeping. For Justin, it’s the other way around: he is a professional chef and has got previous experience as a cleaner, though he now works as a receptionist.
We both hold a valid driving licence (one UK, on French) and are First Aid, Health & Safety and Food Hygiene trained and our combined experience enables us to have a good understanding of the hotel as a whole, and complete tasks in any department, front of house (reception, restaurant, bar etc) and back of house (kitchen, cleaning, housekeeping, maintenance etc) alike.
Therefore, I feel we would be a good fit for the Chalet couple role. We are used to irregular shift patterns and long hours, so hard work won’t scare us away! We are also very flexible on start/end dates of the contract, as we will plan around these. Our only downfall I think would be that none of us can ski, as we have never had a chance to try. However, we love mountains and hiking (I grew up near the Pyrénées) and we’re happy to give it a go, but if anything, it means that at least we won’t be rushing to the slopes every day, but rather take the time to ensure everything is done up to standard and ready for our guests.
Lorena & Justin
