Hundreds of Courchevel jobs up for grabs at Monaco employment fair

Seasonal hospitality and catering job seekers are invited to attend an upcoming jobs fair at the Fairmont Monte-Carlo that has 400 winter positions in Courchevel on offer.  

Each winter, representatives from hotels and restaurants across the south of France and Monaco head to the posh winter sports destination of Courchevel, but not just for the great skiing. They go to recruit employees for the summer season, and this year, for the first time ever, Courchevel is returning the favour.  

On 31st August, hoteliers and restauranteurs from the ritzy resort are coming to the Fairmont Monte-Carlo, where they will be looking to hire 400 people in the hospitality and catering sectors for the incoming winter season.  


After a trial run on 29th August in Saint Tropez, 16 Savoy-based establishments will come to the Principality to scout out talented and willing workers looking to join them for the 2023/24 ski season.  

“We wanted the mirror effect to present the winter offers in the south”, says Corinne Secco, the director of Courchevel Emploi, a town hall service of the commune that facilitates the meeting of supply and demand.  

This particular event is organised in partnership with the Fairmont, but the concept is one that Courchevel’s employers hope to perpetuate.  

“The goal is to develop with the Principality as a whole,” explains Secco.  


The decision to come to Monaco is natural, as both destinations have high quality applicants, many of whom only work part of the year. This concentration of recruits in one area means the pool is larger and more experienced than randomly putting out calls for employees.  

“It’s not easy in all areas and even more so in the seasonal hotel and catering industry,” says Secco.  

There are 5,000 seasonal workers who flock to the luxury ski station each year, so a guaranteed lot of 400 job offers is quite a large number this far ahead of the season. The jobs fair’s organisers explain that as the time draws nearer, more openings will need to be filled, and the applicants who didn’t make the first-round cut will perhaps have a second chance later in the year.  

“Other offers will arrive during the fall,” Secco adds. “It’s still early.” 


Jobs range from spa manager to receptionist, from kitchen staff to service staff, and from maintenance posts to childcare providers.  


Another event is being set up next month locally for job seekers. The Monegasque government is organising its first “Monaco pour l’Emploi” on 15th September, a forum intended, says Minister of State Pierre Dartout, to “bring together the supply and demand for employment in the Principality”.  

It will be held at the Grimaldi Forum, from 9am to 6pm, and those looking for work will be able to meet local employers sorted by sector of activity, such as banking, finance and insurance, trade, accommodation and catering, industry, construction, business services, digital, health and social action, yachting and coaching. Access is free to all, so come with a CV in hand and a smile to get the best jobs.
