Chef - Overnight (Doubtful Sound)

Date: 30 July 2020

Are you looking for a Chef role with a difference? Would you like to 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! You'll be working as part of a small, close-knit team so you'll be constantly on the 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 stock take, order and present food to a high standard.

This is a fixed-term, full-time position starting mid-September and finishing in May 2021. You will 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 also gives you the chance to experience our products in Queenstown, Fiordland and Stewart Island. This includes staff benefits and discounts across the Wayfare Group (Go Orange, Cardona, Treble Cone and the International Antarctic Centre).

 We are looking for strong team players who enjoy getting involved and doing what's required to ensure the best experience for everyone on-board. In this role you will have the privilege of creating some real memories whilst experiencing Doubtful Sound in all its moods!
