An alpine cheffing role in a brand new kitchen with modern equipment? Doesn’t exist. It does!!
Black Diamond is a progressive chalet concept by Guerlain Chicherit, four times word free ski champion. Six unique private residences catered for from a central kitchen by our professional team. Why not do something completely different this season?
You will work alongside a kitchen team, lead by a Senior Chef, to deliver our unique ‘rolling’ catering package, including breakfast, snacks and dinner. Over the course of the season there is the potential to be influential in the evolution and delivery of our product, and to work alongside the Black Diamond team to create and support additional pop up events, as well as helping the wider chalet team.
The role is hard work but highly rewarding. Whilst we have extremely high expectations of our team, we also strive to create a positive environment for our staff. We structure our roles into realistic shifts so you can be sure you will enjoy a good balance between working and exploring everything the mountains have to offer.
