Work For Us
Fish&Pips is a small and personable chalet company based in two of the best resorts in the Alps, Meribel and Val d’Isère. We pride ourselves on our exceptional food, friendly yet professional service and superb chalet locations. We have just successfully finished our 8th winter and are looking ahead to next winter and to putting together a winning team once again.
Most importantly we are looking to build a team that works well together both in the chalets and out on the slopes. Eight years of experience has proved to us that this team work is key to the success not only of Fish&Pips but also your season. We are looking for a hard-working team to maintain our high standards, with masses of enthusiasm for the job in hand, a love for the mountains, an eye for detail and a professional attitude. We value our staff hugely as we recognise they are fundamental in ensuring all of our guests enjoy every aspect of their holiday.
We are firm believers in looking after your staff and that a happy team makes for happy guests! We therefore think providing the following is essential: 3 Valley/Espace Killy pass, generous staff accommodation, a competitive package, more skiing time than most, giving our chefs free reign in the kitchen, amongst numerous other perks you get from working in a small team such as ours.
We are currently accepting applications for Host, Chef, Resort Manager and Driver positions in Meribel and Val Val d’Isère for the 2014-15 season. If you are interested in applying please send your CV, a recent photo, menu plan (for chefs only) and covering letter to Clare on firstname.lastname@example.org – we look forward to hearing from you.
A quick note on menu plans:
If you are interested in applying for a chef position please include a three day menu plan designed to the highest possible standard you feel you can create. Fish & Pips strive for some of the best food in the Alps so do bear this in mind when designing your menu. We have a generous budget in our chalets and we are looking for some interesting, creative, current menus to take our chalet holidays to the next level. We would like to see the following courses included on your menu plan · Breakfast special · Afternoon tea · Canapés x 2 · Starter · Main course · Dessert · Petit four
Any other courses thrown in are always a bonus too!
Enjoy the rest of the season,
Holly & Philippa x
“Working for F&P was a delight and 5 months I shall cherish forever. You enter in to a family brought together for love of the snow and dancing like an idiot, and yet Team Fish refuses to be clicky; always meeting new people. For me – the bonus of working in Meribel Village meant that the family extended to every other company who had the privilege to work in that part of town too; centred around a bar that even Cheers would be jealous of. We were spoilt with great guests keeping every week refreshing and different.
It is hard for my dad to understand why I would want to go and “clean toilets” for another 5 months; but it is one of the most satisfying and rewarding jobs I have ever had, perpetually motivated by the positivity of good company, love of the mountains, fun music, a frothy continental lager or two, and learning from incredible chefs… and I would join the team again in a heartbeat!”
