Work For Us – Seasonal Positions


Recruitment is now open for our seasonal winter team for winter 2024-25.  If you are considering a winter season in one of the best (in our humble opinion!) resorts in the world and have experience in the hospitality sector as a chef, driver, manager or front of house then we would love to hear from you.

We are currently accepting applicants with both UK and EU passports but for those applying from the UK any offers or applications will be conditional on obtaining the relevant work permits and visas – the sooner you apply the more likely that these permits will be granted.

If you are interested in working a ski season for a small, fun, environmentally conscious business please send your CV, menu plan (for chefs only) and covering letter to Clare at [email protected]. Before applying, we highly recommend that you give our blog a read about what makes a successful application and interview with us HERE.

F&P is a small and personable chalet company based exclusively in Méribel – part of the Three Valleys ski resort. We pride ourselves on our exceptional food, friendly, professional service and superb chalet locations.Moving into our 18th winter we are looking ahead to next season and putting together a winning team once again for the 2024-2025 season. Our teams are hand-picked each year with all successful candidates demonstrating extensive experience in their various fields giving us the essential tools to deliver our fabulous holidays to F&P guests.

Many years of experience has proved to us that teamwork is key to the success not only of F&P 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: generous staff accommodation, a competitive package, 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. Many of our team have gone on to work in the luxury villa, super yacht and private household industries. We are continuing with our ambitious project to evaluate all aspects of our business with a view to minimising our impact on the environment and the natural world that forms our winter home.  We are looking to build a team who share this passion and who are keen to work with us to achieve our goals in this area as well.


Chalet Host
Your responsibilities will include the day to day cleaning of the chalet, helping in the kitchen and other chalets if necessary, serving breakfast and dinner 5 days a week and generally hosting the guests.
Chalet Chef
We cater to a high level and strive to wow guests with chalet food that knocks the socks off most. Only employing chefs with restaurant or fine cuisine experience or those with solid training at a reputable cookery school we feel it’s important to give you free rein to design your own menu which can change as little or often as you like
Your responsibilities will include providing a shuttle service to guests working on a rota basis with the other drivers. You will have a great deal of guest interaction so must have excellent client facing skills

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. F&P strive for some of the best food in the Alps so do bear this in mind when designing your menu. We have a generous budget in our chalets and we are looking for some interesting, creative, current menus to take our chalet holidays to the next level. 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! Clare & Holly x      

"Having worked for other companies out in the alps, I have to say F&P are easily one of the best employers out there! They care about each employee and what they want to get out of their season too. You’re not just a staff member with F&P, you are part of a close team. F&P go above and beyond to make sure you get the very best out of the season in all aspects - not just in the chalet, but also on the slopes and in resort, with team days and nights out organised, and our very own festival at the end of the season, it’s clear to see why so many of us go back for another season with F&P!!"
- Carla Smith - Chalet Host 2018/19
"Choosing to work for F&P was one of the best choices I have ever made. Working for such a personable and successful company run by a small group of really quite inspiring women, was extremely rewarding. The job itself is very enjoyable, you meet lots of new people, and are able to develop skills in confidence, teamwork (and of course, skiing!). I can honestly say that F&P are the best company I have ever had the pleasure to work for; their dedication to ensuring staff are happy and well looked after goes hand in hand with a great work ethic and high morale for the entirety of the season. I will certainly be returning for another winter with F&P and cannot recommend them enough if you are looking for a new adventure, where you can work hard, play hard, and make some truly brilliant friends. They make Meribel feel like home."
- Tilly Thompson - Chalet Host, 2018-2023
"This season with F&P I worked with the best team I’ve ever worked with in any of my seasons. Everyone worked so well together, willing to help each other out where needed and I know this was driven by Clare and Holly’s drive for teamwork. I’ve never felt more supported in a management role on seasons than my last one with F&P. It was hard work but well worth it when you work alongside such great people. I’ve always enjoyed working seasons for smaller companies, feeling more part of the ‘family’. The great thing I found about F&P was they were also so well organised, which made my job less stressful and more enjoyable along the way."
- Judy Smart - Assistant Resort Manager, 2018/19
"I have now completed two winters with F&P and I haven’t ruled out more in the future. Not just as an employee but as a proud chef I can safely say they do their best to help you deliver to the highest standard. Here you can be proud of the work you do. They provide a friendly work environment where there is still space for plenty of piste time. I have been a chef for over 15 years and having the freedom to create your own dishes and serve them under the F&P seal is very rewarding."
- Kim Munch - Chef, 2017-2019
