Abstract/Summary Embracing a social constructionist approach to the analysis of a (costly) hospitality, and hence tourism problem, labour mobility, this paper reports on a study of Australian chefs. This article’s purpose is twofold. Predominantly, it aims to legitimate the adoption of investigating occupational and career phenomena from within a social constructionist framework. Secondarily, it aims to summarily report the findings of a qualitative study, using semi-structured interviews, designed to reveal violations of the occupational culture of chefs which might precipitate labour mobility. The paper concludes with theoretical implications for future research, for hospitality and tourism industry practitioners, professional bodies, vocational educators and for policy makers.
