Point Vernon Aged Care Residence, a 57 bed facility on the scenic Esplanade of Hervey Bay, is seeking an experienced, casual Catering Team Member to assist in the preparation and service of our quality, fresh cook meals.
The right person has the capacity to be flexible around working hours as we have the occasional need to fill shifts on short notice. We have varied shifts on offer (but not outside the range of 6 am to 7.30 pm), and you can work weekend shifts which attract penalty rates. You will receive 25% casual loading on top of your base hourly rate.
Working alongside the Chef Manager, you will not only help produce our meals according to our fresh cook meal recipes, but also ensure that the residents receive their meals at the right temperature and on time.
To succeed, you will possess experience, knowledge and skills in the following areas:-
• Experience working in a bulk catering role in an aged/health care environment (mandatory)
• Competent in food preparation, plating and serving
• Ability to step up to undertake the cooking function in the absence of your manager
• Safe food handling practices and knowledge of HACCP
• Post-meal time cleaning kitchen / dining room
• Ability to work autonomously and within a team environment
• Strong customer service ethos and empathy for the elderly
• Adherence to Work Health and Safety guidelines.
Although you have already trained as a member of a catering team, you are an enthusiastic participant in formal training and career development opportunities.
Join the team, working alongside a qualified Chef in a role that allows for career progression. Apply promptly, submitting your cover letter and resume to Lisa Boase, Facility Manager.
