A little about us
Having just celebrated our 30th Anniversary in 2023, no other luxury chalet operator knows Verbier like we do. We have a selection of 19 stunning luxury chalets and apartments in the World’s Best Ski Resort (2022 & 2023) so naturally, we are very proud of the reputation we have for delivering extraordinary holidays.

We fuse highly trained professional chefs and hospitality with unrivalled knowledge and experience to deliver the very best service in the Alps, creating the ultimate skiing holiday experiences for our private and corporate guests each winter.

We are always on the lookout for exceptional people to join us in Verbier. Working in the mountains all winter (December to April) is hard work, but one of the most rewarding experiences you can  have. Not only do we provide industry-leading packages for our team, we do everything we can to maximise your ski-time whilst you are working with us.

At Ski Verbier Exclusive we are interested in talented people with drive, positivity and personality. You thrive working in a fun, dynamic environment where a laser-focus on our Guests’ experience is paramount. So, if you have snow running through your veins, are flexible, love being part of a high-performing team and have previous hospitality experience (a must) we would love to talk with you!

You care about everything you do, your guests and your colleagues.

You have a passion for skiing, the mountains and providing extraordinary service and your enthusiasm inspires those around you

Your positivity and spirit of fun are inspirational and will have our guests coming back every winter

After finishing university I thought a ski season would be pushing back my career but I am so happy I took this opportunity as I have met some incredible friends for life who I am going on to live with even after the season. Working for SVE was such fun everyday and the experiences and stories I have from my season I will treasure forever. The SVE team looked after me so well Verbier became a home away from home"
