We’re looking for chefs at all levels across our resorts in Minehead, Skegness and Bognor Regis.

Whether you have bags of experience or have a passion for all things food and are looking for your first shot in the world of professional kitchens, we could have the perfect opportunity for you here at Butlins.

We have programmes dedicated to your development, ensuring that regardless of the level you join us, we can offer you fantastic training opportunities allowing you to progress from Commis Chef all the way through to Head Chef level. We have development courses running from as early as January 2023!

Butlin’s has a range of fantastic food venues, all with unique offerings focused on delighting our guests so if you love variety, the buzz of a busy kitchen and a chance to get stuck in, we would love to hear from you!

About the Roles

We have opportunities for Commis/ Trainee Chefs, Chef De Parties, Sous Chefs and Head Chefs to join us.

Working as a chef at Butlin’s gives you the opportunity to provide an amazing experience to our guests, wherever they choose to dine on our resorts. We offer a wide range of eateries including Italian and American restaurants with menus designed to excite our guests.

We truly believe that variety is the spice of life and in these roles, you’ll have the opportunity to develop and perfect your skills in a selection of kitchens with a variety of cooking styles. You’ll work alongside other talented chefs and industry experts with access to beautiful ingredients and varied menus.

About You

We have opportunities for chefs with varied levels of experience. Whether you are an experienced Head Chef or someone wanting to take their first step into a career in cookery, we have a role that will be a great fit. The one thing we look for consistently is a passion for delighting our guests and a fantastic ‘get stuck in’ attitude.

We are looking for candidates who are energetic and enthusiastic, high spirited and fun loving and who will understand their role and the value they can add to the guest and the team experience.

If you are interested in our Chef De Partie, Sous Chef and Head Chef roles, we are looking for solid experience in a similar role. You may also be looking to take the next step in your career, and some of our Head Chef roles would be suitable for an experienced Sous Chef looking for their first Head Chef appointment.

For our Commis/ Trainee Chef positions, no experience is necessary!

We think our chefs at Butlin’s are something special and we know our guests love to keep returning to our restaurants as part of their holiday experience.


If one of these opportunities sounds perfect for you, we would love to hear from you! To apply, we will ask you to submit your CV and tell us about which role you’re interested in. One of our team will then give you a call to find out a bit more about you. Should you have any general questions about these roles, you can email careersatbutlins@butlins.com
