Second Chef

Resorts: Val d'Isère (France), St Anton (Austria)

This is a fantastic opportunity to work in a leading ski resort as a Second Chef based in one of our luxury ski chalets. At Scott Dunn we are renowned for our high quality cuisine and the development of our chefs is important in order to develop our future chef talent.

If you are a passionate chef and looking to further your skills this winter then we would love to hear from you. Working in one of our luxury ski chalets in the premier ski resort of St Anton, this is a fantastic chance to create and design new dishes in an exciting environment and really develop your craft whilst working with a Scott Dunn experienced chef.

Within this role, you will hone the cooking skills that you currently have from working in a previous chef or cookery role and will also be responsible for delivering elements of daily service such as breakfast to a high and professional standard. This role will also allow regular feedback from both your head chef and your guests, which will provide instant insight into the service that you deliver and enable you to review and develop your chef skills within a private dining environment.

If you have a passion for cooking, enthusiasm to develop these skills and are driven by offering excellent customer service then a role as a second chef within our winter programme will be perfect for you.
