Job Description

Are you a resourceful chef, with exposure to ala carte and bespoke function? Do you still get a thrill from service and mentoring the next generation of chefs? Looking for a stable employer with an award winning salary? Well, we might just be able to get you BUZZing!

We are looking for a leader to take control of the central city kitchen operations and drive success. Healthy, innovative and tasty food is what the consumers want, using fresh and local produce whilst taking dietary requirements and cost control into consideration.  We are looking for someone to create a team, with a culture of pride in the kitchen. 

The foundations are already in place, and you have a great brigade of chefs to deliver your vision. You will need to be a driven, committed and a resourceful chef who has fantastic leadership skills to inspire and motivate your team. 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.

Returning kiwis from outside of New Zealand, with international exposure are encouraged to apply, however we cannot accept application from those without the legal right to work in New Zealand - no exceptions.

For a confidential discussion, please call Ben Crossen on 03 351 0441.

We're BUZZing....are you?
