We’re looking for passionate people to join our team at Canopy for the 2020-21 Winter Season and beyond.

  • Be caring and empathetic to your guests and team members.

Chef

You’ll work alongside another chef to produce a set menu, changing daily and rotating on a weekly basis. The menu will incorporate both Western and Japanese techniques and ingredients. You’ll spend most of the time in the kitchen, but will also interact with the guests and present dishes directly to their table.

You’ll help to stocktake and order, and shop for the kitchen.

You may be asked to take on additional work during busy times, such as the occasional breakfast shift, driving and room changes.

  • 35-45 hours per week.
  • 6 nights per week, plus 2 prep days.
  • Approx: 3:00-9:00pm

Driver

Daily responsibility will be to run the morning and afternoon ski resort shuttle, and collect guests that are checking into the lodge.
Occasionally a dinner pick up/drop off may be required for outside guests eating in at the Canopy restaurant, also a shopping trip and/or other errands to be done in Hakuba Village.
