Join our team and be part of a unique sailing adventure! We are looking for a 2nd Cook to sail the world’s largest wooden sailing ship Götheborg on her expedition to Asia!

The ship Götheborg is a unique replica of an 18th century trade ship with the same name. To work and sail on the ship is a once in a lifetime opportunity to be part of an exciting project and adventure, in an environment full of passion, creativity and drive. 

During 2022 and 2023 Götheborg is embarking on a great expedition to Europe and Asia – a truly unique expedition. The ship left Gothenburg in the beginning of June 2022 and will sail in Europe during the summer and autumn 2022. She will stay in the Mediterranean during the winter and continue her voyage and arrive in Asia in 2023.

Who are we looking for?

We are looking for a 2nd Cook with a passion for cooking in exceptional surroundings, who is available from 19 or 20 August – 17 September.

We are looking for an experienced cook, preferably with a ship’s cook certificate. Furthermore, your certificates of proficiency, seaman’s discharge book and medical certificate must be up to date.

Besides the above we are looking for a passionate and positive minded cook with a flexible personality and good communication skills. You must be able to communicate in English. Additional language knowledge is an advantage!

What do we offer?

A positive and unique working environment in which good team spirit and collaboration with your colleagues are important values. During the expedition you will get the possibility to work in an international setting, serving food to a very broad scale of deckhands, high ranked guests, and visitors.

Salary will be paid monthly, and sailing will be in a 1:1 rotational schedule of approximately 6 weeks on and off. With proven ability there are options for a long-term employment.
