join the team
Unique opportunities to join a small, award winning team and realise your dreams of living in paradise!
We are busier than we expected to be this fall/winter so are looking to grow the Pluvio family in various different roles.
Our restaurant is a small, intimate space with an open kitchen, serving exceptional quality food, outstanding wines and creative cocktails in a fun and unique manner. Our four boutique hotel rooms are located behind the restaurant beside our rooftop kitchen garden, which allows us to provide our guests with a complete hospitality experience. Newly opened in April 2019, our contemporary West Coast fine dining restaurant was awarded 4th Best New Restaurant in Canada by Air Canada’s enRoute Magazine and owners Warren + Lily were recently chosen as some of Canada’s ‘Foodies of the Year’ by Western Living.
After closing for three months this spring, we reopened our restaurant at the end of May to offer a three or five course menu to a limited number of guests, ensuring physical distancing is in place between tables and putting our open kitchen and bar behind plexiglass. Our rooms are perfectly set up for a safe and comfortable guest experience which has been enhanced by very thorough cleaning protocols. We have taken every step to keep our team, our community and our guests safe and are happy to report that we have been fully booked almost every night since we reopened.
Now more than ever we aim to charm and delight our guests, and each other, through kindness, generosity, creativity and fun. We work with an exceptional group of passionate and driven hospitality professionals who work closely as a team to support each other and our guests.
full time, year round
We are a small kitchen team, cooks work directly with Chef Warren Barr making everything from scratch and foraging local ingredients to use on our menu. We serve dinner only and have an ambitious culinary program. We are always looking for inspiration, ways to improve and grow our offering, and expect our whole team to participate in menu development and guest experience. This is a great opportunity to work with some of the best Canadian ingredients in a unique setting, learn from a passionate and driven Chef and make an impact on a nationally recognized culinary program.
Cooks can expect to work between 45-50 hours per week over 4 days. This makes for long days but gives our kitchen team the opportunity to explore and enjoy the West Coast, whether that means fishing, foraging, surfing or camping. With the current covid-19 health requirements, cooks should expect to periodically work 5 days a week to cover sick leaves and will be compensated for this accordingly.
Benefits of joining the Pluvio kitchen team:
4 days per week (with the current covid-19 health requirements, extra days may be required if a team member has to isolate but additional compensation would be provided)
dinner service only
extended medical/dental benefits after 3 months
daily family meal
great team + positive workplace
training + safe working environment
restaurant + rooms discounts
