Work For Us

We are not currently recruiting but if you are interested in working with us in the future then please say hello and send your CV, a recent photo, menu plan (for chefs only) and covering letter to Clare at – we look forward to hearing from you.

Fish&Pips is a small and personable chalet company based in one of the finest resorts in the Alps – Méribel. We pride ourselves on our exceptional food, friendly, professional service and superb chalet locations. Moving into our 13th winter we are looking ahead to next season and putting together a winning team once again for the coming 2019/2020. Please get in touch if you are interested!

Over ten years of experience has proved to us that team work is key to the success not only of Fish&Pips but also of your season. We are looking for a hard working team that work well together (both in the chalets and on the mountain) 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 that 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: Three Valley pass, generous staff accommodation, a competitive package that has been revised for the 2018-19 season, more skiing time than most, giving our chefs free rein in the kitchen, amongst numerous other perks you get from working in a small team such as ours.

We have even been featured in The Telegraph as a recommended company to work for, we’d love to hear from you!

‘Smaller, more bespoke companies offer a different, but equally attractive experience. Working for a more niche organisation, such as Le Ski, Fish & Pips or VIP Ski, can feel more personal – as if you’re a very important part of the company, rather than a cog in a much bigger machine.’ – Telegraph Ski and Snowboard, August 2017

Chefs – 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.

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!

We look forward to hearing from you!

Team Testimonials 

"Working for Fish&Pips was a delight and 5 months I shall cherish forever. You enter into 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; centered 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, a love of the mountains, fun music, a frothy continental lager or two and learning from incredible chefs. I would join the team again in a heartbeat!" 
- Emily Mayne, Chalet du Guide
"From a professional perspective, being a Fish&Pips chef for 3 winters was a major part of my development as a chef. In pre-season training I got to try out new menu ideas in various demos, I swapped ideas around with the other chefs and refined my cooking style, courtesy of demonstrations and informal menu discussions with Adam Byatt (google him) and some of his brigade which still influence my menus and methods today. Fish&Pips pushed me out of my comfort zone in a way previous jobs had not and helped me develop through each season into a chef comfortable on any section in any kitchen. Friends, relatives, and many guests, used to ask when are you going to get a real job?". Make no mistake, there is nothing 'not real' about this job. You'll work hard, but you will be supported where you need it, and you will gain so much more than if you take the easier option. From a non-work perspective Fish&Pips is a great company to be a part of. They want you to ski and have fun, and they will help where they can - from free rental ski equipment and a few starter lessons if you need them, to staff ski away days and picnics on the hill in the spring sun. Sometimes Holly will even shout you a Genepi after work! The friends you make in 5 months in France will feel as close as if you'd known them 5 years! Just don't make too many life plans for after your winter season, you might find you want to do another one."
- Duncan Smith - Meribel Chef, 2012 - 2015
"I was a part of Fish&Pips for 4 years, and very year it felt more and more like coming home. From waking up first thing in the morning in the mad house, ensuring everyone makes it up the hill to work on time to settling into your working day and trying to race everyone else to be the first out on the hill! No two days are ever the same, and every week of guests brings new faces into your chalet. New dinner chat, new laughs and new experiences. Meribel Village will always be my home I think. Having done 3 seasons before I found Fish&Pips I never thought I would end up staying in any resort as long as I have. I did two seasons running a chalet with my other half, and then another 2 as RM. Fish&Pips expect a lot of from you, they put their guests in your hands, their reputation and high standards are continually checked upon to ensure they are being maintained. But the rewards far out way any of the challenges, and it makes every day a little bit better than the last. Seasonal work is full on, but if it is so worth it. Having the opportunity to get up in the morning and look up a mountain of fresh snow, knowing you know where you can still find fresh lines, knowing you can walk into the little bar in village and there will be a handful of people that, although you may have only recently met, are your new family, and knowing that the more you put in the more you will get out! All of these are things you NEED to experience!

Although I no longer work for Fish&Pips, I still consider myself a part of the family and know there will always be a happy Fish&Pps face in the Lodge du Village to talk to when I make it to that end of the valley. The Three Valleys is my winter home now, and the 3V should be everyone’s winter home for at least one winter! Whether you’re fortunate enough to work for the Fish&Pips family is entirely up to you, but I suggest you take the chance and get ready for a full on winter of friends, new family, lots of skiing and more fun than you knew could be had in those temperatures!

Hope to see you there!"
- Nicky Clode - Resort Manager and Chalet Host, 2012 - 2016
Honestly it was an absolute pleasure to work for Fish&Pips. You all do such an amazing job juggling everything, I really don’t know how you do it! You are three incredibly inspiring women and I’m grateful to have had the opportunity to learn from you.
- Jodie - Resort Assistant 2017-18
I had an absolutely fantastic time working for you and I think the team as a whole was an exceptional group of people, which helped make the whole experience a hugely enjoyable one.
