Job Description

Moveable Feasts is a Christchurch-based company with a passion for catering and events. Operating for over 30 years, their name is synonymous with pride in what they do, to always go the extra mile for their clients. Now incorporating Moveable Feasts, Continental, Pemberton & BBQ Cartel, not to mention an array of venues throughout the South Island, they now seek a culinary professional to drive food offering and oversee multiple sites....BUZZIng?

Anyone. Anytime. Anywhere, that's Moveable Feasts! They have the knowledge and experience to provide quality on-site catering for events of all sizes, in any location - no matter how unusual, intimate or remote. Ranging from weddings, corporate events, cocktail functions, and gala dinners, they are the people to get the job done, from their Christchurch base and fleet of mobile kitchens. 

The Director of Kitchens is a newly created position, with the sights clearly set on the future of this fast moving business. We are looking for someone that has vast exposure to catering, managed multiple sites, can bring an array of flavours, techniques and new age global food trends.

As a culinary professional, you will excel meeting clients, offering bespoke menu expertise and assisting with closing the deal. This is not your average chef position and there is plenty of variety and travel involved. Based at the Christchurch centralised kitchen, part of your day will be meeting clients, menu development and planning, events, procurement and event delivery. We are not just looking for just a chef, we are looking for a culinary innovator.

A market leading salary, branded company vehicle, health insurance (after qualifying period) and KPI bonus to be discussed with the lucky candidate. You will need a full drivers license and the ability to get further endorsements, to drive the mobile kitchen trucks. 

Overseas applications will be considered if you have the legal right to live and work in New Zealand and will be available to start employment November 2020.
