For our Food and Beverage department, we are now seeking both a Sous Chef and a Pizza Chef for our restaurant Matbaren. Matbaren is an exciting concept under development at Norefjell Ski and Spa.

Why Should You Apply for a Job with Us?

If you dream of a unique work environment where experiences await just outside your door and with challenges you won’t find elsewhere, Norefjell Ski & Spa is the place for you. We host a highly diverse mix of guests, have significant seasonal variations, and hold exciting events. Cultures from all over the world come together among both guests and staff. We aim to give our guests unforgettable experiences, believing that memorable moments and breaks from everyday life are essential parts of living.

We are a workplace that values diversity and inclusion, where you can learn and grow both professionally and personally. Working at Norefjell Ski & Spa is not just a job – it’s an invitation to be part of something unique. With panoramic views of majestic mountains, each day is an opportunity to shape unforgettable guest experiences.

As part of the Food and Beverage team, you will have the opportunity to contribute to its development and see the results of your work.
