Job Profile

VistaJet is the first and only global aviation company. On its fleet of over 70 silver and red business jets, VistaJet has flown corporations, governments and private clients to 1,600 airports in 187 countries worldwide.

 

We have pioneered an innovative business model where customers pay only for the hours they fly, free of the responsibilities and asset risks linked to aircraft ownership. Our signature Program service offers customers a bespoke subscription of flight hours on its fleet of super-mid and long-range jets, to fly them anywhere and at any time.

 

Our Catering team is offering a 12-month internship in London to a passionate ‘foodie’ to assist the team with a range of administrative tasks. The London catering team is part of a network of regional teams – in London, Hong Kong and New York – that work around the clock to provide a menu tailored for every VistaJet customer on every VistaJet flight, through established partnerships with some of the world’s leading executive aviation caterers and renowned restaurants.

 

This internship will offer you the opportunity to gain experience and insight into the culinary preferences of an international client group and fine dining in a demanding and fast-paced business.

 

This 12-month internship will start as soon as possible and candidates must be available to work a 40 hour week (full-time).
