Chefs - Furneaux Lodge & Punga Cove


Punga Cove Resort and Furneaux Lodge in the beautiful Marlborough Sounds are on the look out for experienced chefs to assist in our busy kitchens for the upcoming summer season. 

Punga Cove Resort and Furneaux Lodge are located in the outer Queen Charlotte Sound. Punga Cove is accessible by both road and boat and Furneaux Lodge is only accessible via boat. If you love the outdoors and enjoy being part of a hard-working, professional team then this role is for you.

At both venues our kitchens pride themselves on cooking exceptional food, focusing on local and seasonal produce. 

We require chefs that are experienced in fast-paced, busy environments. We are looking for candidates who are calm under pressure and are able to thrive cooking for large numbers.

The positions we are looking to fill are:

  • Sous chef for Furneaux Lodge
  • Junior chefs across both venues

Working closely with the venues Head Chef and the Executive Chef you will be part of a small brigade, catering to both in-house guests and casual diners alike.

In return for your hard work we can offer a very competitive wage along with on-site accommodation for a small charge. We also provide free transport to and from both venues and being a part of the Marlborough Tour Company entitles you to a range of benefits within the company.

We are only hiring candidates who have at least 6 months remaining on their work visas. If your visa expires on or after February of 2021 then we would love to hear from you.

Couples are welcome to apply, if your partner has front of house, reception or housekeeping experience we would love to hear from them also.

Please send your CV along with a covering letter to Sam by email or call us on (03) 577 9997.
