Dozens of catering jobs available

- JARRARD POTTER

DOZENS of jobs are up for grabs with a Toowoomba catering company stepping up to the plate for those looking for work.

With more than 4000 people losing their jobs as a result of Covid over the past 12 months, Cater Care director of people and culture Mel Shortt said the job opportunit­ies were open to all, regardless of age or experience level.

“Our workforce is very diverse, friendly and made up of real people. People from all walks of life are welcomed,” she said.

“Generally, most of our staff come from a customer service or hospitalit­y background.

“However, we have a profession­al training team who work alongside our sites to help prepare and train inexperien­ced team members as well. If you’re willing to pitch in and work alongside your team to get things done, you’re a great candidate.”

Woleebee Creek village manager Simone Smith said she had enjoyed her time working at Cater Care.

“Coming from working on cruise ships for many years, I was adjusting to land life but still wanted something with an edge,” she said.

“Cater Care and the role of site manager seemed to have all the elements, and more, which could satisfy my drive towards something new.”

Mrs Shortt said Cater Care had opportunit­ies for work in Toowoomba, Western Downs and Maranoa to come and work at their Ruby Jo and Woleebee Creek sites.

“You don’t necessaril­y need catering experience. I know plenty of people might have transferab­le skills having worked in a bar, cafe or hospitalit­y,” she said.

“We have a range of positions from chefs to kitchen hands and utilities management.”
