We are looking for candidates who have guest satisfaction as their number one priority. We are seeking positive team players who want to work hard and enjoy the mountain lifestyle at the same time. You will work as part of a fantastic team to bring a first-class standard of service to our guests.

Working for a luxury company, we expect our chefs to be absolutely professional in every way. You will be working in a guest facing, open plan kitchen and must be presentable, confident and calm at all times. Whilst we offer a fine dining service, guests take the chalets on a private use basis and are free to request changes to menus within reasonable planning time for the chef. Examples of previous requests being sushi, Indian, Mexican, barbecue style nights.

F.A.Qs

Q. I am passionate about cooking but have no culinary qualifications/training/experience, can I apply?

A. Unfortunately not, we only hire professionally trained chefs with excellent restaurant or private chef experience

Q. Will I be working in a commercial kitchen?

A. The chalet kitchens are open plan residential kitchens which have been purpose built for catering with, for example, double ovens. We also provide equipment such as sous vides, table top fryers and ice cream makers. You will be expected to bring your own knives.

Q. How do I budget and where do I source ingredients?

A. You will be given a set budget per person per day and it is your responsibility to manage that budget throughout the season.

We have also used UK suppliers who supply direct and previous chefs have brought specific ingredients and elements with them in the past.

Q. Will I work in the same chalet for the whole season?

A. You will most likely work in one chalet for the majority of the time, however, there will be some weeks when you will work in a different chalet or be sent to assist one of the other chefs depending on guest movements and weekly bookings. You should be flexible and adaptable to change in this respect.

Q. Will I get to ski/snowboard much?

A. Absolutely! We want our chefs to enjoy everything the mountains have to offer.

Working independently in the kitchen, you are in control of your time and can enjoy the mountains all winter.

Q. I have never skied/boarded before, does that matter?

A. No not at all. We have had previous staff who have never been on snow before and we have had staff who have done many seasons before. Either way, by then end of your season you will be a natural! You can take advantage of lessons when you arrive but we would advise that you try to get some experience before you come, purely from a social point of view so that you can join the others who can ski right from the beginning.
