IHG Chef de Cuisine - Crowne Plaza Hunter Valley in Hunter Valley, Australia


At Crowne Plaza ® Hotels & Resorts our goal is to

make business travel work. That’s where you come in. When you’re part of the

Crowne Plaza Hotels & Resorts brand you’re more than just a job title.

At Crowne Plaza we look for people who are dynamic, confident and

ambitious; people who excel in their role and help our guests succeed too.

Join us as the Chef deCuisine for Conference & Events at the Crowne Plaza Hunter Valley. You’ll

have ambition, talent and obviously, some key skills. Because, for this vital

role, we’re looking for someone who can motivate a very passionate kitchen

brigade of up to 15 chefs and lead the largest regional and Award Winning

Conference Venue in NSW.

Given the scope of the Crowne Plaza Hunter Valley, you will have an

opportunity to work in various culinary areas, but most importantly you

will be responsible for the daily operation and running of our large-scale

Conference & Events business that generates over $5 million in food revenue

per annum.

Supported by our Executive Sous and Executive Chef, you will have the

opportunity to showcase your organisational and logistical skills by managing

events across more than 20 conference spaces, including:


1,000 seat Conference and Events Centre


450 seat Grand Ballroom


450 seat Countryside Marquee

This rare opportunity will see the successful candidate unleash their

creative flair through research and new menu development, and the creation of

new conference and events products using state of the art kitchen facilities.


Ideally you will have proven experience as a Chef de Cuisine or at a

Senior Chef level within a reputable establishment, who can apply a small

restaurant approach to a large scale event. You will be able to manage a large

kitchen brigade, and be successful at creating a positive culture, effectively

delegating, and mentoring and inspiring the team to perform at their best.

You will possess solid business acumen to monitor financial budgets,

food and labour costs and you will have the ability to maintain exceptionally

high and consistent food quality standards at all time. You will have previous

experience in HACCP accreditation and be knowledgeable in food safety and WHS


In return for your hard work, you can look forward to a highly competitive salary and benefits package – including a fantastic career with IHG, discounted accommodation and food & beverage discounts worldwide. What’s more, because your career will be as unique as you are, we’ll give you all the tailored support you need to make a great start, be involved and grow.

And because the Crowne Plaza Hotels & Resorts brand belongs to the IHG ® family of brands, you’ll also benefit from all of the opportunities that come from being part of a successful, global hospitality company with over 5000 hotels in nearly 100 countries around the world.

So whoever you are, whatever you love doing, bring your passion to Crowne Plaza and IHG and we’ll make sure you’ll have room to be yourself. Find out more about joining us today by going to careers.ihg.com at http://www.ihg.jobs/
