We are looking for a passionate cook who can support our Teachers, environment and cook our children healthy meals. The successful applicant will join the team on a permanent basis working 25 hours per week Monday - Friday.

ABC Blenheim Central consists of two beautiful converted villas - one for infants 0-3 years old known as Tahi and one for children 3-5 years old known as Rua. We provide healthy meals for the children which our Cook makes fresh every day, ensuring that cultural, developmental, parental preferences and allergy needs are met.

As our Cook you’ll have sole responsibility for the planning and preparation of appetising, nutritious and culturally varied meals and snacks for our active children. You’ll have an excellent knowledge of foods that promote good nutrition and healthy eating and will be providing all meals for our active children each day - so you’ll need to be organised and energetic.

In return you will be part of a fun and friendly team, working with and alongside children.

Our successful applicant will have the following attributes…

Cooking/Food preparation experience
Flexible and reliable
Passionate about promoting healthy eating and cooking/baking with children
Previous experience preparing food for a large number of people
Good sense of humor
Team player/good communicator

Other daily responsibilities may include domestic duties such as cleaning, laundry, washing, restocking, ordering food and providing cover in the classrooms as required. Experience in a similar role would be a bonus as would a current food handling/safety certificate – but training and ongoing support will be provided.

Empathy with young children and their whanau is essential.

As part of BestStart team you’ll enjoy a uniform, childcare discount and much more! If the above sound like you then please submit a CV along with a cover letter that highlights why you feel you are the right fit for us.
