We're looking for a chef (or chef couple) who will love to run his/her own kitchen cooking for our guests in our superior chalet Les Clochettes in the picturesque resort of Megève, France. You need to have great presentation skills, the ability to cook well and a genuine passion for food.

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.
