Job Description

With a stunning new lakefront venue almost complete, 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!

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.

We are looking for a hands on chef that wants to come on this journey. You might be an experienced Head Chef or ambitious Sous Chef... but you will need to lead from the front and build a brigade. You will be able to select your entire kitchen team, get them trained up and ready to launch the venue in the coming months. 

On offer is an amazing salary ranging between $75,000 - $85,000 p/a, relocation assistance including initial accommodation 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.

All enquiries to Ben Crossen on 03 351 0441 or

Sponsorship will be considered should you already have a valid visa.
