It takes a special kind of caring to do what we do…. and to do it well. It’s the sort of caring which comes from the understanding that we’re not just producing nutritious meals, we’re an important part of the home life for residents (and their families). They deserve our best and at Medirest (part of Compass Group New Zealand) , we’re committed to making sure we give them nothing less.
We have a fantastic part time (16 hours per week) opportunity for a Chef to work weekends at our Senior Living Site in Paraparaumu, Kapiti Coast .
In this position, you will be responsible for cooking and serving meals for 90 residents according to dietitian specifications and ensuring the quality of every dish we serve. This position requires a person with leadership skills and a person who takes pride in their personal presentation.
A friendly, empathetic and helpful nature is important to us, the customer, and the client.
If you’re our perfect candidate, you will be a team player, have a high standard of presentation, with a friendly outgoing personality, and a ‘can do’ attitude. Ideally, you will already have experience working in a commercial kitchen in an aged care environment and hold food safety certificates (Unit Standard 167 & 168). Excellent English skills are must.
You will need to have the ability to work independently and confidently, but most importantly you will demonstrate a passion for great food, customer service and quality.
Our business is diverse and so are our people. That’s what makes us great. We want our workplace to reflect the community at large and encourage people of all backgrounds, ages, abilities and sexual orientation to apply for roles with us. We actively promote inclusion and seek to create a workplace where everyone has access to resources, opportunities and rewards.
