If you’re a creative Cook, with a flair for healthy menu choices, and can prepare meals children will love, you’ll fit right into the friendly team at our Tower Junction centre. 

We are looking for an experienced Cook to cover maternity leave from October 2021 to April 2022. This busy daytime role is 35 hours per week, Monday to Friday, so you’ll appreciate having your evenings and weekends free to spend time with family and friends.  

We’ll offer you a fun, warm environment, where supportive, connected relationships are a priority. You’ll be preparing and cooking vegetarian meals for approximately 100 children each day, using the guidance and support offered through our Nourished Beginnings affiliation.

  • Competent in preparing, cooking and serving food that follows our recipes 
  • Committed to the highest standards of cleanliness, and adhering to our policies and procedures 
  • A cheerful multi-tasker, with excellent time-management skills 
  • Willing to take care of some cleaning and laundry tasks as required
