Catering Assistant - St Joseph’s Home of Compassion, Upper Hutt

We have an exciting opportunity for a motivated and reliable catering assistant who has a real passion for food and cooking and is keen to take the next step in their career by joining our team based at St Joseph’s Home of Compassion in Upper Hutt. This would suit someone with experience working in a commercial kitchen, that enjoys cooking for family and friends, who would love the opportunity to make the day of residents by serving amazing meals!

St Joseph’s is a Catholic home catering for residents from all religious faiths and those with no affiliation. The successful candidate will need to be compassionate and warm, and able to work with respect for and in support of the home’s unique mission and values.

Working on a rotating roster over 7 days there are two shifts (9am – 1.30pm and 3.30pm – 6.30pm). The roster may require you to work one or both of these shifts on any given day. The afternoon/evening shift works unsupervised to serve the evening meal after the chef has finished for the day so requires someone who can take initiative, problem solve, and keep on top of the different quantities and dietary requirements of residents.
