It takes a special kind of caring to do what we do and to do it well.

They deserve our best and at Medirest we are committed to making sure we give them nothing less.

Your caring and respectful nature, can-do attitude, safety focus and passion for great food and service will be rewarded with flexible working hours, training and other benefits. A variety of work locations and rosters are just the beginning. Talented and motivated team members can expect their careers to flourish with Medirest, one of the world's most recognised healthcare brands.

  • Ability to prepare and serve food items in accordance with strict food safety guidelines
  • Demonstrated knowledge of hygiene standards and Workplace Health and Safety
  • Commitment to respond to customer requests in a timely and friendly manner
  • Well developed interpersonal and communication skills
  • A discreet and respectful manner
