Southern Cross Auckland Surgical Centre is a private short-stay surgical hospital based in Remuera that is committed to providing restaurant quality meals and catering for special dietary requirements on request.

This role is responsible for providing meals for 17 patients and morning tea and lunches for up to 90 staff per day. You will be a hands-on leader actively involved in the cooking and service of all meals, the day-to-day running of the kitchen, and making our client smile!

The role involves:
• Culinary knowledge and relevant industry and supervisory experience
• Menu design and creation
• Preparing, cooking, and serving a-la-carte restaurant quality food for patients and staff
• Extensive knowledge of dietary requirements and food control regulations
• Achieving legislative and budgetary guidelines
• Managing product quality standards and service delivery
• Being an exceptional team player
• Great communication skills and moderate computer literacy
• A flexible, can-do, committed attitude

The ideal candidate will:
• Have excellent communication skills and a flexible/can-do, committed attitude
• Be friendly and engaging, with a desire to provide an outstanding service to our customers
• Be passionate about good food and great service
• Have good time management and problem-solving skills.
