Chalet Host

This is arguably the most important role in resort as you provide the primary interface between our guests and the Company. We cannot overstate the impact our Chalet Hosts have to the success of our business and more importantly, the enjoyment of our guests' holiday.

The Chalet Host is responsible for delivering our brochure promise in the chalet and full commitment to the role is required.  Your day will start with wake up drinks served in bed first thing and finish with clearing the table after dinner at night.  Our chalet hosts are different from all others.  We are able to hand pick our staff from the thousands of individuals who apply to make very sure that we have the most interesting, dedicated, gregarious and professional staff in the Alps.

We prefer more mature applicants who take time and pride in their work and have more "life experience" to share around the dinner table.  We are also unique in that all our Chalet Hosts undertake a comprehensive 10-day chalet course specifically designed to equip them with all the tools required to excel in the role.  This includes training on our set menus and bespoke cleaning techniques.

We do not actively look for qualified chefs or cooks, although a passion for cooking and confidence throwing dinner parties is a necessity.  We can train you to become more confident with your cooking; we cannot train you to have the drive, enthusiasm and sheer dedication to customer service that we expect: that is up to you.

Stock Controller (Val d’Isère)

You will liaise closely with the Supply Manager who oversees all storeroom operations.  For the majority of the time you will work alone so you will need to be a dedicated, self motivated and fastidious individual who is extremely organized with a mathematical brain.

To manage the stock you will use a stock control application for which training will be provided, however you need to be familiar with using a Windows PC, and have a basic knowledge of Outlook and Excel. You will need to be able to enter data accurately.

Private Nanny

There are not many ways to earn a living by building snowmen, creating a glittery masterpiece or going on a trip for hot chocolate. But being a Private Nanny is one. In this job you can combine a love for working with children with the stunning surroundings of the French Alps.

The role of a Private Nanny with VIP SKI is one of the most demanding yet rewarding we have to offer, working with children from 6 months to 12 years to ensure they have a safe, fun filled and activity packed holiday. You will work independently with a family in their chalet, providing flexible care to ensure Mum and Dad can relax on the slopes happy in the knowledge that their children are having a fantastic holiday.

Your job is not just to look after the children in your care, but to entertain them, so you must be creative and energetic to be able to provide constant fun and stimulation.  As a company with a reputation for excellent customer service, we expect you to be driven to work to the highest standards and deliver our service as set out on the company website.

Head Nanny

Not many people can further their career by sledging and making snow angels, but in the role of Head Nanny with VIP SKI you can do just that.

You must of course be qualified to NNEB, CACHE, NVQ level 3 or equivalent, although we also welcome applicants with a teaching or nursing degree, who have good experience working with young children. You should also have management or leadership experience and a good understanding of professional childcare standards.

You will work independently with a family in their chalet, providing a flexible service tailored to the family and children you are working with each week. You must have a creative and flexible approach to deliver a safe and fun-filled week of activities, making the most of the awesome Alpine location. We are renowned for our excellent childcare programme, and heading up one of the childcare teams, you will be responsible for coordinating your small team of nannies to ensure they work to the highest standards. You must be organised and have the confidence to take charge of your peers, but be able to maintain both personal and professional relationships in the childcare team and resort as a whole.
