Night Porter - The Lodge

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 11th winter at The Lodge which really does provide the perfect year round escape!

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 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 an exclusive use only 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! We take special requests into account particularly for exclusive use 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 Guest Services Manager and Operations Manager, the Night Porter role is integral in the evening running of The Lodge and ensuring that the guests are looked after and safe throughout their evening until the next morning.
