Hospitality Couple for summer season in French Wedding Chateau

FRANCE / SARL Chateau Rigaud

Chateau Rigaud is an exclusive wedding venue, set amid the Bordeaux vines in South West France. We deliver a truly beautiful, first-class wedding, each weekend of the season from April to November and we have an enviable reputation, due in the main to our fantastic team of hospitality professionals.

We’re recruiting a new live-in couple to join our on-site team for the summer. One half of the couple will assist with maintenance, from chopping wood or hoovering the pools to changing a light bulb. They will also drive the minibus on rehearsal and wedding nights so need to have held a clean driving license for more than two years and be confident driving a larger vehicle. This person will also assist with staging weddings so must be customer facing, happy to move chairs, set up banqueting tables, serve drinks etc and able to work alone or as part of a team.

The second half of the couple will work in the chateau on breakfast service and housekeeping, also as a kitchen assistant (which means a lot of washing up) and waitress, occasionally helping the chef team with food preparation. A genuine personal interest in food is an advantage for this role along with complete flexibility.

We are able to offer:

• A happy & lifestyle driven atmosphere to work within

• Excellent on-site, self contained, private accommodation with all bills paid

• A five-day week with two consecutive days off together for most of the season

• The opportunity to adapt your role in future years to suit an area of your interest

• Excellent training opportunities & a proven track record of promotion within the business

• A competitive salary & regular tips

• 90% of our team return for a second season & many for the third

This is an amazing summer season for an enthusiastic, hard working couple to join an exceptional team of happy, social, active young people who really enjoy the beautiful French country living, spending their weekends together exploring locally and further afield including the Atlantic coast and Spain, also hosting weekly team dinners and many other activities during the summer.

The successful couple must hold an EU Passport, a driving license and be legal to work in France. They must possess a strong positive mental attitude, flexibility and a cheerful approach to the challenges that the chateau will present on a daily basis and they must appreciate rural chateau lifestyle and everything that goes with it. We are an hour from any major town and therefore the night-life is definitely restricted.

Rigaud is a very special place to work. A beautiful medieval chateau in a stunning part of the world and we’re lucky that our team stay with us for many seasons in a row. The atmosphere is friendly and inclusive, with a strong social life generated by the team on-site.

This is initially offered as a seasonal contract starting in early April and running until November 2018. Before applying please look at our website and also our Facebook page.
