Job Description:

Join the Kiawah River family as we launch the much-anticipated Spring House! We are looking to hire creative and enthusiastic individuals who are interested in launching a dining experience that falls in line with our farm-to-table concept. The Grille Chef position has opportunity for growth in line with a expanding community and therefore an evolving dining operation. This individual would be part of our first-ever Spring House crew, a.k.a. the Renaissance Crew. Why Renaissance? This facility is a blossoming operation and requires individuals who are looking for a fun and exciting learning opportunity to develop skills and an understanding of multiple different fields-hospitality, fitness, events, and food and beverage operations.
Kiawah River is a fairly new waterfront community, located on Johns Island, that embraces the Lowcountry sea islands life and is centered on outdoor pursuits with 20 miles of shoreline and 2,000 acres of picturesque land, including multiple working farms, a goat dairy and a Community Support Agriculture (CSA) program. The community vision is to combine residential, retail and hospitality offerings with custom and semi-custom homes featuring high-quality coastal architecture. We are located right off of Betsy Kerrison Parkway, near the River Road intersection and 2.5 miles before you reach the Kiawah-Seabrook roundabout. The commute includes a relaxing and scenic drive past farmland, wildflowers, mossy oaks, and some of our favorite "residents", the Kiawah River Farm's cows, goats, pigs, donkeys, and chickens.
Set to open late summer, the Spring House is the first key amenity in the new Kiawah River community and features two pools, an outdoor spa, pool bar, dining room, event space, and a state-of-the-art fitness facility with locker rooms and saunas- all overlooking the scenic Kiawah River.
The Spring House plan for opening is late August. Shift hours range from 7am-7pm. Full-time applicants with wide-ranging schedule flexibility will be given first consideration but we are open to hiring individuals who are a good fit that may also have scheduling constraints and/or are only available as part-time employees. The ideal candidate will have good schedule flexibility with the willingness to work weekdays, weekends, and occasional holidays.
