Do you enjoy cooking and supporting older people? Abbeyfield is seeking a warm, caring, well-organised person to work as weekend housekeeper/cook for 12 older residents at our Abbeyfield House in Palmerston North from early November.

About us:
The focus of Abbeyfield Palmerston North is to maintain the independence and dignity of older people who are able to look after themselves but who no longer wish to live on their own. We provide affordable living, meals and general support to our 12 residents, but no nursing or personal cares.

The position
The part-time cook/housekeeper will have fixed hours of 9am to 3pm Saturdays and alternate Sundays.
This role is autonomous; your key duties will be the preparation and serving of a nutritious home-style main meal and dessert for lunch and preparation of a smaller light meal to be left for tea, as well as maintaining a tidy kitchen/dining to a high standard, basic record keeping and offering general support to residents if needed.
Lunch is included and the residents like the cook to dine with them.
The perfect candidate will:
  • Be an experienced, confident and capable home-style cook.
  • Have some basic food safety/hygiene knowledge.
  • Be able to multi task, plan and time manage effectively.
  • Have compassion and patience, as well as the ability to relate to a broad cross section of older people.
  • Be reliable and dedicated to the role.
  • Have a sense of humour!

We are also looking for someone on-call covering Stats and annual leave as required. Can be rolled into the same position.
For the right person there may be the opportunity to pick up further fixed hours moving forward.
If this sounds like you, we’d love to hear from you.

Applicants for this position should have NZ residency or a valid NZ work visa.
