Kitchen Staff

We are hiring several positions to work in our Galley on Hurricane Island this summer.

  • Kitchen Manager/Head Cook: We are hiring staff to lead and manage our Galley team! The Kitchen Manager/Head Cook position would live and work on Hurricane Island, and would be the primary person in charge of the “Galley” (our commercial kitchen, complete with a beautiful ocean front view) to plan and prepare meals for the island community.  This is a fun and dynamic environment and requires someone who can help create a welcoming and open environment, and is well organized, efficient and reflect HICSL’s core mission of education, leadership and sustainability.  Applications will be accepted through our online portal and review will begin January 15th and continue until the positions are filled. Click here to Learn More.
  • Cook: We are hiring a Cook as a part of our Galley team. The Cook would live and work on Hurricane and, along with the rest of the galley team, would be responsible for organizing and preparing three meals a day for our island community, ranging from 20-60 people depending the programs on the island.  The Cook would report directly to the Kitchen Manager and would work closely with HICSL’s Director of Operations. Applications will be accepted through our online portal and review will begin January 15th and continue until the positions are filled. Click here to Learn More.

  • Kitchen Assistant: We are seeking to hire two (2) Kitchen Assistants as essential members of our Galley team.  These positions run through the peak of our summer season and are essential positions in the operation of our commercial kitchen.  Previous experience in a kitchen is not an essential requirement, but rather a person that is motivated, reliable, hard working, willing to learn, can work well with others.  This is a fun and dynamic environment and both a great learning opportunity and a chance to engage in a educational community on an off-shore island environment.  Applications will be accepted through our online portal and review will begin January 15th and continue until the positions are filled. Click here to Learn More.
