SKYCITY Auckland is the perfect environment for a future chef to hone their culinary skills and we're now taking applications for our Chef Apprenticeship Programme to start in February 2019.

With over 20 restaurants, the largest production kitchen and a vast out catering and conventions facility we offer training that's second to none, learning experiences and a range of career opportunities.

What you need to know:

  • It's a 3 year programme that will see you become a City and Guilds fully qualified chef
  • You get to learn from the best Chefs in the industry across a broad range of cuisines, techniques and styles who will support you every step of the way
  • We pay you - whilst you work and study towards your qualification, you'll also earn some money too!
  • It's hard work - forget the glitz and glamour of what you see on TV. Expect to spend long hours on your feet and to get your hands dirty
  • You'll get really good at organising your life to fit everything in - work, study, friends and family. That's a lot!
  • We offer great staff benefits like discounts at our hotels, cheap parking and cheap meals in our staff cafeteria. We even launder your uniform for you so you don't have to stress about keeping those whites crisp and clean

What we look for in you:

  • Patience to master the basics first
  • Perseverance to get through the long hours and demands of balancing work, study and your social life
  • Determination and drive to finish the 3 year programme
  • Attention to detail and a commitment to quality
