We are looking for a Cook to join the crew and contribute to a safe, relaxed and fun atmosphere aboard for our summer season. The cook has responsibility for provisioning and catering for up to 18 people on board. The food is of a high standard with a set menu for each meal. At dinner, an alternative main course is always offered, often vegetarian or suitable for special dietary needs. The cook is also considered to be the ‘domestic manager’ and plays a crucial role in the smooth running of the boat. He or she is sometimes assisted by a voluntary crew member who can join us for a week and help the cook for just half of each day. Our voluntary assistants come on a working holiday basis, so friendly and helpful management by the cook is essential. We have gained a good reputation for excellent food and the guests often remark on this in feedback and thank you letters, so we need someone to continue this tradition.


Professional experience of this sort of cooking is an advantage and the successful applicant will have a friendly outgoing manner with guests and crew as well as excellent cooking skills. They will also be dedicated, hardworking and have an organised approach to the job. All crew are required to live aboard and food and accommodation is provided. Please contact us for the full job specification and details of how to apply.
