Your strengths

You like to work behind the scenes, getting involved in activities that are core to an organisation's effective service delivery. Without you, new recipes wouldn’t be created, customers wouldn’t have an exciting new daily special, and the food prep, pots and pans wouldn’t be ready for the next service.

You'll likely be happy to be on your feet, working in a fairly physical role and seeing the impact of your work in the form of a final product for a customer - a meal plated up and ready to be enjoyed by a customer.

Your strengths are likely:

  • A love of food!
  • Ability to work in a team or independently
  • Good attention to detail
  • Willingness to learn and take instruction
  • Basic (right up to advanced) English skills to be able to read product labels, ingredients, and communicate with your team

You’ll want to convey these skills in your CV and interview process.
