Courteney Shipp
Ski & Chef Consultant

Courteney joined Crew and Concierge Yacht Recruitment agency in 2021 where she took over and heads up our Yacht Chef division. She now has joined up with P.S. to develop and head up our Ski Chalet and Chef division.

She started a few years ago recruiting for the healthcare sector and her previous experience shone through. We are delighted she has been able to adapt some of those skills and bring them to her new role.

She is enjoying the personal approach we take when recruiting Chefs and Ski Chalet staff. She said "learning about the Chef's and their backgrounds is fascinating, each and every one of them has come to be a Chef from starting out in such varied pathways. Listening to them about the different types of training, whether that is 4 years in culinary college or on-the-job training from working at the local pub as a young person to being self-taught is very interesting". She also loves to hear about their favourite things to cook as well as listen to some of the other repertoires they have had to adapt to over the years.

She is now getting to grips with all the staffing roles required to ensure the smooth running of a high-end chalet and has gone on to place her first lot of winter staff in Verbier for winter 2022.

In her spare time, she loves socialising with her friends and family, staying active in the gym, and taking time to travel. She is a keen cook herself and is often in the kitchen cooking for everyone.
