Lady Wigram Village is Christchurch’s newest Aged Care facility, built in the heart of Wigram Skies new subdivision, and next door to The Landing retail and commercial center.

Golden Healthcare’s expansion into Wigram has seen the development of 101 Villas. The new apartment block housing the first 16 serviced apartments is now operational. In keeping with this upmarket concept, we are now looking for an exceptional cook to provide high quality meals and catering for our residents. As our development grows, so too will the demand on catering staff, with a 2nd kitchen to be built.

The hours for this role will be Saturday and Sunday, 7.30am to 1.30pm. Some flexibility will be preferable to cover for the week day cook as required. You will be cooking lunch for apartment residents and on order for the Villa residents. You will also be providing morning and afternoon teas and catering for functions from time to time. As the apartments begin to fill, the demands for meals and catering will increase. You will have the opportunity to work in our state of the art kitchen to deliver excellent service to our residents. You will be creating healthy, appetizing and nutritious meals, taking into account dietary requirements for our residents. We also have a café operating on site, selling freshly baked cabinet food such as muffins and sandwiches.

Ideally you will have:
- exceptional cooking skills, preferably with commercial kitchen experience
- experience in catering for special functions and events
- food safety knowledge, with a minimum Level 3 in Catering Services
- great time management and organization skills
- reliable transport
- NZ Citizen, permanent resident or current work visa with a minimum 2 years

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