Job Description

With a new building, customer experience restaurant and bar currently under development, we've been BUZZed to find a Head Chef, to lead and inspire the kitchen team at Earth & Sky, Tekapo! We are looking for an experienced kitchen leader, who is energetic, motivated and thrives in a fast paced, dynamic environment. If you are looking for a new  start up challenge for 2019....why not give us BUZZ!

Ngāi Tahu Tourism hosts more than one million manuhiri (visitors) a year across our thirteen iconic businesses, with a fourteenth, the All Blacks Experience, due to open in 2020.  Earth & Sky has an exciting new build on the way which will include a historic 125-year-old telescope, retail store, impressive restaurant and bar, plus an experience zone there couldn't be a better time to join!

With a spectacular site currently under development, it's now time to get culinary creations underway. As a key member of the management team, will you be starting with a blank canvas, applying a concept to implementing the overall menu, including key "signature " cuisine. Budgeting, menu costing, inventory management, staff recruitment, supplier arrangements, FCP,  training and management - it's pretty clear you need to be a professional.

On offer is an amazing salary package, relocation assistance and many other benefits. Ngāi Tahu's connection to Māori and Ngāi Tahu culture, history and stories is an important part of the experience for our customers so an openness to learning basic te reo and tikanga is a must.
