Are you a dynamic 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. You need to have great presentation skills, the ability to cook well and a genuine passion for food. We are happy to help you to get the right standard by providing menu plans and templates for you or if you are confident and happy then we are also happy for you to do your own menus and support you in that. It is a balance between providing great food and yet making sure that you get out and ski, which is what you're there for.  We will help you to get that balance right.  We take pride in how well we take care of our staff and many of our staff remain our very good friends. 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; or working in our superior chalet cooking as above but including canapes and 4 courses for up to 16 guests working with one host. 
  • 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 two chalet hosts, a flexi host and a manager as a team so you help each other out to ensure our guests have a great holiday!

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

  • 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.


  • Great cooking skills and experience
  • Chef qualifications including Food Hygiene level 2 minimum
  • An organised, constructive, passionate approach to work
