Full- or part-time job as kitchen employee on a unique location (Ameland), including board and lodging!

Are you ready for a new adventure as a cook? Do you have no plans for the upcoming time and do you want to make money? Besides that, are you hospitable, motivated, and enthusiastic? Then start working for us on the Wadden islands as a cook!

We are looking for nice people whom are willing to work hard, while having fun. Grinding in your vacation, weekend, or fulltime on Vlieland where it’s never boring!

Are you creative, a hard worker, and a king (or queen) in the kitchen? Do you know how to create the tastiest dishes or do want to help create these? Are you the type of person that gets satisfaction from happy guests and someone who sees unhappy guests as a challenge? Someone who is able to work hard, but simultaneously able to maintain a pleasant working environment? Then we are looking for you! From washing lettuce to grilling steaks and from cutting cucumber to a stunning creation on a plate, you feel at home in the kitchen and you can show your skills in there or you want to learn these skills!

Once you enter the work area you’ll be noticing the fun chaos already. You greet your colleagues in the kitchen and you wave to the busy barkeepers and waiting staff. You discuss with your chef what needs to be done still for the preparation. Are there any particulars and will we have big groups? The tasks are divided. Together with your colleagues you make sure the lunch dishes are sent to the restaurant rapidly while you make sure the preparations for the busy evening are ready. In the meantime you joke around with the dishwasher, you compliment a colleague on a nice dish, and you ask the waitress whether all guests are satisfied. Your shift flies by. After your shift you take a cold drink while overlooking the sea. Being a cook on an island isn’t so bad!

Working on Ameland 

You will work in Hotel Noordsee, located in the pleasant village of Nes. Ameland is a tourist island with beautiful beaches, fine forests and heathlands, plenty of beautiful nature and outdoor opportunities! In addition, there are a number of cozy villages, with the necessary bars and of course you will find several beach pavilions on the beach!

But… working at WestCord doesn't just mean running and sweating during your shift. Because, in addition to a hard worker, we are also looking for someone who will sit with us on a terrace, someone who likes to get to know new people, who likes to spend free hours on the beach. Because in addition to being colleagues, we are also a close family at WestCord.
