Luxury Chalet Chef

Bedrijf

Purple Ski provides luxury catered chalet holidays in Méribel, Courchevel and Val d'Isère, France. We operate truly exceptional chalets which can accommodate between 8 and 14 people, so that we can focus on providing a very high quality and individual service. With 29 years of experience under our belts, we know that our staff play a vital role in the success of our company, so we are looking for enthusiastic, hard-working and professional people to join us and help maintain and build on our excellent standards and reputation. We take pride not only in making sure that our guests have the best possible skiing holiday, but also on being a great company to work for. We hand-pick our team based on skills, experience and a great attitude, and we do expect the highest standards of work. However, we make sure that this is well rewarded and that there is plenty of time for enjoying life in the mountains as well. Our record as an excellent employer is evident by our very high staff retention rates during each season (staff seldom leave us mid-season) and typically large number of returning staff each season (about half of the 2019-20 team were returners).

Taken

The Chef works alongside the Chalet Manager, Chalet Assistant(s) (where applicable) and the Chalet Assistant/Driver to manage his/her assigned chalet on a day to day basis, ensuring that the guests' needs are met at all times while maintaining the Company's standards. The chef's primary responsibility is for the provision of exceptional quality food and drinks. We truly aim to deliver the best food in the Alps, and arguably succeed in this - we won The Times Chalet Chef 2010 award - "upmarket catergory", but our standards have improved hugely even since then. We are serious about our food and have very high standards! Take a look at some photos (snaps - not professional!) from previous years to give you an idea of what we do / look for. Working essentially as a private chef, you need to tailor your food to meet your customers' needs and wishes, which can be challenging, but you also have immense freedom to work on your own dishes, show your creativity and flair. The hours are long, the job is physically and emotionally demanding and you need to be good at working as part of a team. You must have extremely high work standards, be customer-focused, self motivated, take pride in your work at all times and be conscientious. No shopping is required! However you are responsible for ordering chalet supplies and managing within a (generous) budget.
