This is a great opportunity for a Breakfast chef to join our kitchen brigade on board Fingal. Fingal is a luxury floating hotel permanently berthed on Edinburgh’s vibrant waterfront. This historic ship started life as a lighthouse tender, helping maintain lighthouses and transporting their keepers, equipment and supplies to some of the most treacherous locations in Scotland. Launched in January 2019, she has been transformed into an exquisite 23 cabin boutique hotel and exclusive use venue by the award winning team at The Royal Yacht Britannia.

A hotel with all the glamour and style of a superyacht but with an old-world elegance that is completely unique. Curves and tilts, deck spaces and beautiful lines that tell the story of Fingal’s rich seafaring history, offering a totally unique experience, far removed from your everyday world.

When it comes to produce we use only the best aboard Fingal. We are passionate about creating dishes using fresh local produce taking inspiration from what’s in season and the ingredients presented to us by our local forager.

This role would suit someone with a great work ethic, an enthusiasm & passion for cooking and a proven track record of delivering excellence.
