We are looking for passionate Cooks who want to work in a chalet-hotel environment providing high quality food for 25-40 guests each week.  This is a full-time position for the winter season, working alongside a Resort Manager and Hosts with support from a qualified Chef.

Our holidays include a continental breakfast, afternoon tea and a 3-course evening meal, with canapés before and a cheese course afterwards.  We have our own Cookbook with menus pre-planned for the week, and our Cooks are responsible for ensuring the food is prepared and served to the set standard.

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


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.  Today we are a state-of-the-art cottage industry and we're proud of it.  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!

Principal Tasks

The following is an outline of the principal tasks that are expected of our Cooks over the course of a week working independently and also sometimes alongside a Chef:

  • Assist with breakfast cooking a hot dish to order (usually eggs or pancakes)
  • Bake cakes and biscuits for afternoon tea
  • Prepare pre-dinner canapés
  • Provide a 3-course evening meal using the recipes in the Ski Miquel Cookbook
  • Some weeks there may be children present who will have a simplified meal before the adults sit down to eat.

Our most efficient Cooks ensure as much as possible is prepped during the morning and then return to the kitchen late afternoon to finish off in time for dinner service.  We do not offer lunch to our guests in our chalet-hotels, so after you finish your preparation work then your day will be free until you need to return to prepare for the evening meal service.

Our staff all work as a team, and with your guidance the Hosts will help with plating up meals and cleaning the dishes.  Cleaning the kitchen and cookware is the responsibility of the Cook, so that you should all finish work around the same time.

Other responsibilities will include maintaining a clean and hygienic kitchen and ordering stock to ensure you maintain the pre-set budget in conjunction with the Chef, who will report to the Resort Manager with any issues.
