At Ski Miquel we are looking for a well-trained and professional chef to work in one of our chalet-hotels ensuring high quality food is provided for 25-35 guests each week. This is a full-time position for the winter season, working alongside our Resort Manager and Hosts.

Ski Miquel holidays include breakfast, afternoon tea and a 3-course evening meal with wine included.  We have our own Cookbook with menus that are pre-planned for each week, our chefs are responsible for ensuring the food is cooked and served to the prescribed standard.  We do not serve lunch, so once your prep is done then your day is free until you need to get ready for the evening service.

This job is ideal for an experienced chef who is hard-working and organised, as this means you will get the most time out on the mountain.  

Please note that at this point in time the position is only open to EU passport holders or those with who already have the right to work in the European Union.

The Company

Ski Miquel is more than just an inclusive ski holiday company, we are a family-run business based in Hove (near Brighton) with over 40 years’ experience in the travel industry, and we like to think we're pretty good at what we do. 

The company was founded in 1980, after our owner and a colleague decided to start their own travel business.  Five permanent members of staff work for the company in our offices so that when you call or e-mail us you'll know exactly who you're talking to.  We don't like to hide behind e-mails or answerphone messages - We're upfront and personal, and we want to talk directly to our customers so that we can provide the best level of service for them again and again.  It's this close-knit work ethic that has turned Ski Miquel into the much-loved travel company it is today. 

With five members of staff in each resort, we work hard to achieve the level of service that our customers have come to expect.  Creating a fun and friendly atmosphere in our chalets is our main aim, and we do this by ensuring that we hire the best staff.  We own most of our chalet-hotels, and 85% of our bookings are either repeat guests or word-of-mouth recommendations.

If you’re looking for a great company to work for during the winter season then you’ve found it!


Job Tasks

This is an outline of the general tasks and requirements that are expected of our Chefs:

  • To prepare and serve breakfast on alternate days (working with our Chalet Hosts), the main job being to cook eggs to order for service from 08:00-09:00.

  • Maintain a clean and hygienic kitchen

Our most efficient Chefs do most of their prep work during the morning and then go back to the kitchen late afternoon to finish off ahead of evening service which is at 20:00.  We do not offer lunch, so after you finish your prep (usually around 11am) your day is free and you should not have to return until late afternoon for the final evening prep.

Our staff all work as a team, and the Chalet Hosts will help with plating meals to a set standard with your guidance before serving.  All of you will help with the clearing and cleaning of the kitchen following service, so that you can all finish together.
