Cook - ABC St Albans

ABC St Albans is a renovated villa in the heart of Edgeware. Licensed for 50 children with 2 large rooms and outdoor spaces we strive for an environment that lets kids be kids, take risks and be empowered to make decisions that affect their learning.

We are looking for a passionate cook who can support our teachers and environment and cook our children healthy meals. The successful applicant will join the team on a permanent basis working 20 hours per week Monday - Friday.

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…

  • Be able to cook
  • Flexible and reliable
  • Passionate about promoting healthy eating and cooking/baking with children
  • Adaptable
  • 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 paid staff meetings, a uniform, childcare discount and more.
