First off, to work in France you either need a European passport or a visa giving you the right to work. For more info on visas, click here.

Some common seasonal jobs in Chamonix are restaurant work, bar tending, cleaning, nannying and driving to and from Geneva airport.  If you get here early enough (beginning of December) there are many jobs available.

It is good to have a working knowledge of French and a CV in French but definitely not mandatory.  If you start your search and CV sending early enough, you should have no trouble.
