Job Description

We have been BUZZed & looking for a talented Executive Chef to drive the culinary team and lead the kitchen operations at Distinction Hotel & Conference Centre, Palmerston North. If you have hotel experience with conference, events & a la carte and looking for a BUZZing new position..time to sharpen those knives!
With 85 rooms, the hotel cater for an array of conference and events, not to mention a la carte. The General Manager is looking for a talented "hands on" chef, with an array of flavours and techniques to raise the profile of the food operation. We are looking for a leader to take control of the kitchen operations and drive success. Healthy, innovative and tasty food is what the consumers want. We are looking for someone to create a team, with a culture of pride in the kitchen.

Writing menus, costings (including using a computer), training and creating company manuals will all be part of the job. I can't stress enough that this is a "HANDS ON" position.
