Sous Chef - The Lodge, Verbier

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 have just finished our 10th winter season at The Lodge this year and are half way through our 10th summer.

We are a team of 16 in the winter and 14 in the summer and between our amazing team we provide a level of service to ensure the guests have everything from a mountain ski 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, 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 an exclusive use chalet during the winter months where guests can rent the whole chalet for their group. We do have an occasional ‘hotel style’ week where the guests can rent the rooms individually as well, however the dining is still communal! During the summer months we run predominantly ‘hotel style’ where guests rent the rooms individually but all dine together. Our offering is slightly different during the summer, in that we leave guests to their own devices a bit more during the daytime and late evening hours, while still offering a great service. We take special requests into account for all guests, particularly for exclusive use groups, and work on coordinating menus, wines and requests before their stay. 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 Head Chef, and General Manager, this role as Sous Chef is an integral part of our kitchen team, and greater team as a whole, in providing an excellent service to all of our guests.

Here’s what you need in your toolkit:

BEHAVIOURS/ SKILLS

  • Socially confident and able to easily communicate with guests and with the team professionally whilst bringing your personality to the table as well!
  • Resourceful approach – able to troubleshoot in the event of a sudden change of plans.
  • Hands on approach and happy to turn your hand to any task.
  • An understanding of how to balance fun and professionalism while at work
  • The ability to work a flexible working week with varying days off and a variety of shifts.
  • A ‘can do’ and proactive attitude.
  • Punctual with good 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?

Here’s what you’d do:
As the Sous Chef 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 winter & summer seasons season (with holiday time given at the end of the winter) through the end of your contract in September. You will be required to work an average of 50 hours per week which will consist of five days of mixed shifts.

Detailed Responsibilities:

  • Working as part of the kitchen team to produce fantastic food of a consistently high quality.

  • Working with the team to produce the following meals to a high standard:

    Varied cold lunch options including picnics/ off premises
