The Lodge - General Assistant

The Lodge is Sir Richard Branson’s stunning nine bedroom chalet in Verbier, Switzerland, one of the Alp’s most exclusive resorts and Europe’s hottest ski spots. Situated on a quiet road just 250m from the main ski lifts and backing onto one of the returning pistes, The Lodge is in a perfect location for the slopes in both summer and winter!

The Lodge itself provides a unique and fun setting: guests can swim in the indoor pool, be pampered in the Spa, or just relax after a day on the mountain whilst enjoying a wide selection of tailored menus and fine wines. We are about to embark on our 9th summer season after a busy winter period. The Lodge really does provide the perfect year round escape!

We are a team of 16 in the winter and 15 in the summer and between our amazing team we provide a level of service to ensure the guests have everything from a mountain holiday that they could ever wish for. The size of the team means that it is imperative that everyone plays their part in making things work without being protective about their own role or overly sensitive to who is doing what. The guests don’t know, or even need to know, who does what so if you are there and someone asks – you do it! It’s hard work but the payback is great and it’s fantastic to be a part of a team where everyone has the same “can do” attitude.

The Lodge operates primarily as a ‘hotel style’ chalet during the summer months where guests can rent the rooms individually, however we do have a few exclusive use groups and weddings throughout the summer season as well where the whole chalet is rented to one group. Whilst we offer in-room dining, most often the guests dine together at the main table and are offered a set three course menu. We also take special requests into account particularly for exclusive use. The guests are encouraged to make The Lodge their own and are welcome to visit the chefs in the kitchen and help themselves to drinks if they like (although we are always on hand to do that too!).

Reporting to the Guest Services Supervisor and Operations Manager, this role is integral in the day to day running of The Lodge and ensuring that the guests are more than content.

Behaviours and Skills
• Socially confident and able to easily communicate with guests professionally whilst bringing your personality to the table as well!
• Resourceful approach – able to troubleshoot in the event of a breakdown or sudden change of plans.
• Hands on approach and happy to turn your hand to any task.
• Good eye for detail and attention to special touches for guests in house.
• An understanding of how two balance fun and professionalism while at work
• The ability to work a flexible working week with varying days off split shifts and late night shifts.
• A ‘can do’ and proactive attitude.
• Punctual, well organised with strong time management skills
• A sense of fun and an understanding of the Virgin way of doing things! We call it the ‘fun factor’ here at The Lodge.

What’s the gig?

As a General Assistant here at The Lodge you will play an integral part in the daily running of the Lodge and ensuring that each and every guest has the best Alpine summer holiday ever! It is a seasonal position and you are expected to be available for the entire summer season commencing on May 29th and finishing on September 30th.
