Procurement & Sustainability Chef - Necker Island

Sir Richard Branson's private island paradise, and home, Necker Island, in the British Virgin Islands is unquestionably the most idyllic place in the Caribbean. At 74 acres, Necker sits in turquoise waters surrounded by coral reefs and fringed with white sandy beaches. The island can be hired exclusively for up to 30 people and is the perfect destination for special occasions and events! It can also be shared with others ‘house-party’ style during Celebration Weeks, which are held several times each year, when guests can book individual rooms. Accommodation comes in the form of 11 rooms in the Great House and 4 individual Bali Houses dotted around the island. The property can also be rented for large events and weddings of over 200 people.

The style of Necker is “barefoot luxury”, but the feeling we aim to create for our guests when they arrive on island is of coming home. Unless our guests feel completely at ease from the moment they step onto the island we haven’t done our jobs properly.

The island provides extensive water sports activities as well as tennis courts with a resident coach, gym and outstanding spa treatments. There’s also a wonderful array of rare wildlife on the island, which we are helping to flourish!

If that wasn’t enough Virgin Limited Edition also operates on Moskito Island, another beautiful island where Sir Richard Branson has a home, along with another number of other homeowners. It’s just two miles South of Necker Island and staff may find themselves working closely with the Moskito Island team.
