Are you a chef tired of working for the usual Superyacht owner?

Do you enjoy a role with variety and being a part of scientific/research missions?

A unique opportunity has become available for an enthusiastic chef keen to join a very professional team out of Perth.

The yacht will undertake a mixture of private owner trips and scientific research trips, where the yacht will be home to a team of scientists conducting research in the Indian Ocean.
