Food forms an important part of each day at Lifeview.  Residents love to try new cuisines as much as they love the old favourites.  They also love to grow fresh produce for our creative chefs to turn into amazing meals - it is a partnership that rewards all involved.

To be considered for this role, you must hold the necessary qualifications, commercial cookery and food handlers certificates, a current police check, together with the experience to lead a dynamic team to deliver beautifully presented and nutritional meals to residents.

You will also ideally:

  • Have aged care experience
  • Have an understanding of dietary requirements and texture modified meals
  • Cert 4 in Commercial Cookery (essential)
