The beautiful 18th century Château du Baffy, on the edge of the small village of Colombiers, offers guests the chance to stay in the beautiful Normandy countryside and enjoy the superb beaches nearby.
The château is a popular destination for UK school groups during the academic year (primarily March to November), keen to explore the region with a wide range of daily excursions. During the summer holidays (late July/August), the Château is enjoyed by adult and family guests.
The Château du Baffy is owned and operated by Select School Travel, which is fast-becoming one of the UK’s leading school travel operators with properties in France and Austria.
The property sleeps up to 110 guests and offers facilities including all-weather football pitch & tennis courts, games area, fire-pit, cinema room plus opening for 2018, a new indoor sports hall and function room. Staff are also provided with mountain bikes and as appropriate, company vehicles to further explore the area.
Following a successful season in 2018, we are now looking ahead to the 2019 season and would like to recruit an Assistant Chef, working alongside our established French Head Chef, Thierry, to provide healthy and varied evening meals to the school groups and adult guests.
We aim to provide a varied and flexible working environment to ensure that you are able to enjoy and explore all that the location and the region has to offer, including regular team day trips and social events plus local fitness centre / swimming facilities.
The neighboring farmhouse / gîte provides the main staff accommodation, equipped with new farmhouse kitchen, lounge and dining area complete with log-burner, as well as separate mezzanine TV lounge and wifi – offering the team the chance to relax and socialize together.
As such, we are looking for energetic, motivated and ambitious candidates who can demonstrate:
- catering/kitchen experience
- willingness to learn
- hardworking / team player approach
- enthusiasm for working with school groups
- French language preferential
A valid driving license would be beneficial.
If you would like to become part of the new, young and exciting team, please don’t hesitate to contact us for more information.
