If you are an experienced chef or waiter/waitress - look no further :-)

If you are planning to go abroad for your next career step, if you want to acquire new experience and spend a shorter or longer working period in another country – Welcome to Sweden! 

For the upcoming winter season there are a lot of job openings at the ski resorts in the north. Most hotels and restaurants are located in the middle and southern part of Sweden and the demand for qualified chefs and waiters/waitresses is high. For the seasonal jobs in winter and summer, employment is usually offered between 3 and 6 months and could be a good start to see if you would like to stay in Sweden. Of course, there are also a lot of possibilities to get permanent positions. 

To be considered an interesting candidate you will have to meet the following requirements:

  • 3+ years of experience
  • Vocational training in your field of culinary occupation 
  • English communication skills

For chefs, you need to be willing to share your knowledge and be open to new influences in cooking techniques and different cuisines, as well as being a team player. You have to be prepared to take on various tasks in the kitchen. It is important that you have a genuine interest in service and have a true passion for food.

For waiters/waitresses, you have to be experienced and completely comfortable in all techniques in your profession since­ you need to keep all focus on the service. You will be serving in a language that might not be your or the guests mother tongue.

The working conditions are beneficial, wage and monetary benefits are determined by Swedish collective agreements. You work 40 hours per week. Employers will, in some, offer accommodation at your own cost, often low.
