• YSE Chalet Thomily
YSE cook


We are now recruiting for 2017-18

The cooks who work in our smaller chalets (for 4-6 guests) may be less experienced than our qualified chefs, but must still be enthusiastic.

We give you the full YSE training – up to one month’s cooking tuition – completely free of charge. It is beneficial to have done some kind of course before, but this isn’t necessarily a requirement for the position. What you do need is an appreciation of good food, a love of cooking and you must be a “people person”.

You will be responsible for cooking breakfast, afternoon tea and three-course evening meals with canapés to a high standard six days a week. Chalet work is hard, with early starts and not much sitting down, but it is a great opportunity for cooks to gain more experience, working in a supportive environment while cooking to a very high standard.

Our small-chalet cooks are responsible for the entire running of their chalet, so this also includes menu planning, budgeting, shopping, cooking, cleaning and generally ensuring your guests are having a great holiday.

In addition to a reasonable wage, you will be able to ski for up to six hours on six days of the week. We provide travel to and from the UK to Val d’Isère, accommodation, food and medical insurance and the loan of skis or snowboard and boots.
