Are you a chef who loves cooking but would also love to ski (or learn to ski)?  Then we're looking for you!

We're looking for a chef who will love to run his/her own kitchen cooking for our guests in our chalet/hotels in the picturesque resort of Megève, France.   NB You must be an EU passport holder i.e. issued in France, Spain, Ireland etc. or have a french working permit which you can get with a Canadian or Australian passport but not at the moment with a UK passport.  Please do not apply if you only have a UK passport as sadly right now we can't get the relevant paperwork to be able to employ you. 

If this is your first time doing a ski season and/or running your own kitchen, then we will give you help to get started with set menus but once you're into the swing of it you're welcome to vary them.  We're looking for someone who can cook with flair and imagination and make delicious meals for our guests but also who is keen to balance their time in the kitchen with lots of skiing!

We take pride in how well we take care of our staff, from the standard of our accommodation to the amount of ski time we offer compared to other companies. Please call or drop us an email to find out more.

The Job

- Cooking breakfast, cake for afternoon tea, and a 3-course evening meal for around 30 guests in your chalet 6 days a week; 

- Taking responsibility for food hygiene standards and processes in your kitchen;

- Ordering food to your chalet;

- Stock control, stock rotation and wastage minimisation.

- Working with one chalet host, a flexi host and a manager as a team so you help each other out to ensure our guests have a great holiday!

As a relatively small company, we’re open to individual ideas and originality in our kitchens. We will give you set menu plans and templates to get you started, but one of the best things about working for us is your freedom to be creative and not cook the same meals week-in, week-out if you would like to. We pride ourselves on the standard of cuisine that we offer and want you to be part of it.

The Setup

-Two chalet-hotels in Megève: the Rond Point and the Sylvana plus our superior chalet Les Clochettes and some self-catered apartments;

-Five members of staff in each: Manager, Chef, Assistant and two Hosts; plus a chef and a host in Les Clochettes

-Resort Manager, Maintenance Person and Resort Administrator in resort for support


What we offer

- Competitive salary plus tips

- Travel to and from UK, food and good accommodation

- Ski / board and boot hire, full area (445km) ski pass and proper time off to use it

- A chance to influence your working environment and be part of catering decisions that will make your job and your food better

- Ski lessons for those who haven’t skied before or who want to improve

- One full day off every week & two half days off most weeks, plus excellent ski time (usually 5-6 hours/day, 5 days a week unlike other companies)

We ensure that your hard work is rewarded with what you’re here to enjoy: skiing. Megève is a great resort with a large ski area and fantastic off-piste. We like to ensure that our staff are happy, partly because happy staff makes happy guests but also because we are out in Megève for most of the season and we like to work with people who are enjoying themselves.  A lot of our staff have remained our very good friends.


- Must have an EU passport i.e. issued in France, Spain, Ireland etc.  Please do not apply if you only have a UK passport.

- Great cooking skills and experience

- Chef qualifications including Food Hygiene level 2 minimum

- An organised, constructive, passionate approach to work

- A friendly, flexible, team-orientated personality; you’ll be working as part of a team of five, although you will be the only chef

- Keen to get out and ski!
