About the role
The role of Chef at Harbour Hospice is really special. You get to talk with patients then design and cook meals from scratch to suit their appetite. As part of a team who share a passion for serving home cooked, nutritious meals and baking, you’ll learn to design and cook three main meals a day plus morning and afternoon teas. We’ll expect you to get stuck into everything from food prep to dishes, to serving meals and making teas and coffees.
We have two casual positions available. One to be based at the Hibiscus Hospice in Red Beach and the other, at the North Shore Hospice in Takapuna. We are looking for people with the flexibility to work over the Christmas period and for the right person, this could lead to a permanent role.
You might be qualified or not. The key thing we’re looking for is someone who loves to cook for the benefit of others. You should share our love of baking and have the potential to create a wide variety of meals to suit different appetites.
What you’ll bring:
- Experience in a commercial kitchen (preferred but not essential)
- Knowledge of food safety procedures
- Enthusiasm to learn and take direction
- A flexible and compassionate attitude
- Ability to work as part of a team, get stuck in, and take initiative
Harbour Hospice is one of the largest hospices in New Zealand, caring for patients and their whānau for almost 40 years. Every day we care for more than 350 people across the North Shore, Hibiscus Coast and Warkworth/Wellsford regions, supporting them at home (or in one of our three sites) to live every moment in whatever way is most important to them.
Our bespoke services, given free of charge, include medical care, spiritual support, physiotherapy, social activities and more.
What’s in it for you?
When you become part of our team you’ll get:
- In-depth induction
- Ongoing training and development including support to get your Food Safety & Hygiene Certificate
- A great team environment where we really do look after each other
- Work/life balance
We won’t push you to see patients unless you’re comfortable and feel ready to. The best thing about this job is that you’ll make a real difference for patients and whānau.
