ESS provides a home away from home for people working in remote mining villages and offshore on oil rigs. We provide the hospitality solutions to ensure all guests are getting the comforts of home even in isolated locations.


Do you have cooking experience, but find yourself limited because you don’t have the qualifications? We get it. At Compass, we know people’s career paths look different. That’s why we’re on the hunt for experienced cooks – we see you for your talent, not your qualifications. As a cook, you will work alongside qualified chefs in our busy remote kitchens producing great food for the mining professionals on site. We have several avenues for progression through Compass, including RPL (Recognition of Prior Learning) courses.


Key Duties

  • Prepare, cook, and serve meals across breakfast, lunch, and dinner for residents and guests
  • Provide, encourage, and promote exceptional customer service in all tasks
  • Ensure all OH&S compliance is achieved – including adherence to our food safety handling and storage procedures
  • Provide culinary support for site events including theme days, BBQs, and occasional cooking classes

The Person

You do not need a qualification to become a Compass Cook. However, you will need to be passionate about both food and people. In addition, the ideal candidate will have:

  • Great personal presentation and strong interpersonal skills
  • Experience working in a ‘buffet service’ environment with exposure to international cuisines
  • Ability to work under pressure while maintaining a professional manner
  • The ability to pass a Drug and Alcohol screening, company medical test, and National Police Clearance

The Benefits

We place great importance on being an employer of choice and offer excellent career opportunities including internal transfers; ongoing training and development; a competitive salary; recognition programs including awards, long services, and team events days; site based benefits; and company discounts

So, if you are a 'get in and get it done' person, who thrives in fast-paced environments with new challenges and consistently delivers to the highest quality, then we'd like to hear from you.
