CHIEF STEWARDESS required on 50m+ sail yacht currently in New Zealand.

This is a full time role on this world travelling yacht.

This is a fantastic opportunity for an experienced Chief Stewardess to join a great team on a fun yacht.

This job is a multifaceted role, incorporating accounting, service, housekeeping, laundry, as well as working closely with the Captains on board.

They are currently completing a yard period in Auckland before heading to Tahiti for their first boss trip in a long time. The plan is to return to NZ for the AC events and then continue their exciting worldwide itinerary.

The yacht is set up well for guests to enjoy a luxury experience as well as have a yacht which can sail at high performance.

As the chief stewardess you will need to work closely with the second stew and maintain a harmonious feel on board.

We are looking for an outgoing & smart chief stew with past chief stew experience or a strong second stew with a sailing background. High standards are expected on board, an eye for detail and also initiative is needed in this role.

Dining on board is formal service, and having a creative flair for table setting, cocktail hour and floral arrangements a bonus.

Candidates with previous charter experience is preferred. They like to create a unique experience for guests on board and ensure a warm, friendly atmosphere onboard while maintaining a luxurious and professional standard.

Accounts are done monthly by the Chief Stewardess, using Quicken. This is an important part of the chief stew role and must be done on time, to a high standard for the boss’s office.

They are proud of having a tight knit crew and a family feel on board. If you are looking for a long term job with a great team - this is it!

Great package on offer.

** We are ONLY considering candidates who are already in NZ or are already en route to the country. The borders are still closed to foreigners and the yacht can not assist with exemptions. Candidates applying through YOA are being interviewed first.
