Meeting with the Human Resources Director from Lausanne Palace

Determined to make Hospitality her career path, Florence Vialletel started her profession at ski stations such as Courchevel and the Diablerets, after receiving her Diploma in a Tourism school located in France.

Following this experience, she then continued her career at the hotel La Barcarolle  which is situated on the river bank of Lac Léman. This is where she discovered her passion and further development in Human Resources next to Thierry De Balincourt.

As a result, her career continues to develop further in this particular department and through the years at the following various hotels:

 

“The Vatel School stands out”

  “In hospitality, there are not good or bad profiles, it is above all a question of motivation with regards to the demands of our industry.”

We search for individuals that:

  • Like contact with clientele
  • Exude a positive attitude
  • Dress appropriately and professionally
  • Believe in the same values of our establishment

More than 40 students from Vatel Switzerland have been recruited for an internship by Florence Vialletel as well as Vateliens Filipe Correia (Sales & Marketing), and Edouard Bujard (Reception) who also work alongside her in different departments.

A solid proof of trust in return for the total investment by Vatel’s students: Vatel stands out for its quality in theoretical and practical teaching. When students start their internships, they already have a good base knowledge and a strong foundation to quickly integrate into their department’s team.

Setting the foundation for to a long lasting relationship, Florence confirms.
