Commis Chef - Winter Ski 17/18SkiBound France
The flour to our cake…
Our kitchens are the heart of our Club Hotels and we’re looking for individuals who share our passion for food, fun and being part of a team. Working for us a Commis Chef will give you the chance to accelerate your kitchen career far above your UK counterparts – because we’re not afraid to put on our whites and get stuck in! You’ll be preparing and creating a variety of dishes to show off your culinary flair whilst having the chance to learn and work alongside some of our most experienced Head Chefs.
Can you handle the heat?
To join us for the Winter Ski Season you’re going to need to be…
- Energetic and motivated
- Have a willingness to develop
- Confident, with a tool kit of basic catering skills
Not forgetting the formal bits!
A qualification in catering and/or professional cookery is desirable but not essential, as is experience with preparing for high volume covers. And of course hard working, yet efficient (means more time on the mountains!)
My name is Ben and I’m 21 years old from Birmingham. I’m about to start my 2nd season working for Skibound as a Commis Chef, but my 3rd time working in the Alps!
Favourite part of the job
One of my favourite aspects if working for Skibound is being able to combine two of my passions, cooking and skiing!
Best work memory
The people you work with on a season become like family, one of my greatest memories is when the team I worked with helped me to celebrate my birthday.
Why should you join Skibound?
Being able to combine two passions, cooking and skiing is what keeps me returning each year. The environment you live and work in is fantastic, you also get the chance to work with people from all different backgrounds which helps you not only develop as a chef but also as a person! I learnt more in a SkiBound kitchen than I did cooking in the UK.
What do you do during your time off?
In my spare time I spend my time skiing and then I hit après ski! Working within the 3 valleys gives you endless amount of slopes to explore.
What qualities do you need to work a Season?
To be a seasonnaire you need to be friendly, be punctual, open minded and above all a team player!
