Allrounder for small mountain hotel

SWITZERLAND / Pension Gimmelwald

The Pension Gimmelwald is a small family run hotel in the heart of the Berner Oberland, in the Swiss Alps. Beside the hotel rooms we run a bar/restaurant with 30 seats and a busy terrace.

We are looking for someone to support the manager in covering reception, kitchen back-up, and housekeeping and bar work; all the roles involved in running a small 11 bedroom hotel. Beside that we also look for someone who likes cooking and feels confident to provide a set evening meal for our guests. We have a small team, so we expect everybody to be hands on, which means gardening from time to time, too.

We pay Swiss salaries, tips are shared equally, full board and accommodation provided.

We are looking for those who are keen to enter the hotel profession or have experience already and who have the personality to work in a social environment. The customer staff relationship is a key part of our family run hotel. We look for positive ambitious staff with a proactive attitude (must have a European Passport). We also provide a detailed reference for further employers at the end.

Please note the hotel is in a remote village high in the Alps, great for Nature crap for Party!

The hotel is owned by David Waterhouse from London, so interviews would be in Vauxhall in April, 22.-26.

Your first language should be German or English (most guests are from USA, Switzerland, Germany and the Netherlands but also from the UK). The summer season starts on the 20th of May. We look for someone from around the 18th of May, or from the beginning of June. The contract finishes in September or October.
