Chef - Overnight (Doubtful Sound)

Date: 12 June 2019

Are you looking for a Chef role with a difference where you can leave the kitchen behind and work in a galley onboard a vessel in Doubtful Sound? 

We are looking for a passionate foodie into quality food, presentation and service to join our Doubtful Sound Overnight Crew!

As the sole chef onboard, each day you will have up to 72 customers who you will be preparing and serving exceptional buffet dinner and breakfast meals for.  This means that you need to be a great all-rounder creating everything from bread to desserts! As the only chef on the vessel during your week on you would be in charge of stocktakes as well as ordering and storing all food.

This is a demanding role! As one of 10 people in the crew it is constantly go go go and everyone in the team relies on each other for encouragement and support. We are looking for someone with a positive, can do attitude who has a high attention to detail and can successfully stocktake and order sufficient food to a high standard.

This is a fixed term, full-time position where you are lucky enough to be on a 7 days on, 7 days off roster, providing you with an unique opportunity to work and play hard in this beautiful part of Southern New Zealand.  You'll be based on board the vessel for your days on; with your own accommodation and all meals provided.

As part of your role you will have the opportunity to gain a NZ Certificate in Domestic Maritime Crewing - a NZQA approved qualification. Working for Real Journeys gives you the chance to get out and about experiencing our products in Queenstown, Fiordland and Stewart Island. This also includes staff benefits and discounts across the Wayfare Group (Go Orange, Cardona and the International Antarctic Centre). These are just some of the great staff benefits on offer!

If you are excited by the opportunity to call the Fiordland National Park your home for 7 days a fortnight and you think you have what it takes to be part of the overnight crew then we would love to hear from you!
