Famous in Western Australia and Queensland, ESS (a division of Compass Group) might just be the best employer you’ve never heard of!  ESS manages all aspects of large-scale accommodation facilities, or “villages” for remote workers, providing the essential comforts from a hot meal, a clean bed, freshly laundered workwear, to health and wellness facilities for those working away from home.

Roxby Downs is a mining town in outback South Australia and is often referred to as the most ‘modern town of the outback’!  About 15km north is the mine site of Olympic Dam.  Olympic Dam is one of the world’s most significant deposits of copper, gold, silver and uranium.  BHP operate underground and surface operations including a fully integrated processing facility from ore to metal.

What is a Casual Swing?

As a Casual Chef or Cook, you will be rostered to work a full 14-day swing, for 10-12-hour days. After your 14-day swing, you will always get at least 1 week off before potentially being rostered again.  You have the control to work as many swings that suit your lifestyle.

The Position

We are looking for experienced chefs and cooks accustomed to high volume buffet-style kitchens, to feed the mining professionals breakfast, lunch and dinner, and keep them happy, healthy, and working hard.

Key Duties

  • Prepare, cook, and serve meals across breakfast, lunch, and dinner for residents and guests
  • Provide exceptional service when interacting with our staff, residents, and guests
  • Maintain food safety standards in line with company policies
  • Collaborate with the Head Chef to create “special food offers” outside the regular menu cycle
  • Manage the expectations of both clients and diners

The Person

The successful candidate will have experience working in a high volume, buffet style kitchen. In addition, you will possess:

  • Chefs will have their Certificate III in Commercial Cookery
  • Cooks will have the experience but not the qualification
  • Passion for providing exceptional customer service
  • Ability to maintain professional standards in a high-pressure kitchen
  • Ability to pass a Drug and Alcohol Screening, company medical test, and National Police Clearance

The Benefits

With onsite facilities such as tennis courts, gyms, swimming pools, golf, squash, cinemas and more you will enjoy your down time on site! We also have an attractive benefits program including a competitive salary and incentive scheme, recognition programs including service and safety awards, team event days, site-based benefits and company discounts.

So, if you are up for the challenge and would like to find out more, please apply and we’ll be in touch.
