    A seachange location with 12 months accommodation package on offer

    Create food that makes a difference.

    If you long for a more rewarding career in food services, then our innovative aged caring community in Bargara is the right time and place to make a difference. Positioned on Queensland’s Southern Great Barrier Reef, Bargara is a beautiful beachside location with an enviable lifestyle for that seachange you’ve always dreamt of.

    Gone are the nursing homes of yesteryear, and thankfully so are their food menus. This is a modern, bright, vibrant 5-star luxury community with a strong focus on the dining experience.

    Our dining rooms, kitchens and services are based on restaurant standards. Kitchens are fitted out with the best brands of equipment to make your job easier and efficient, including Rational ovens, Vario cooking centres and Robot coupe.

    The position will place you at the forefront of change, and give you the chance to help reinvent the way our elders dine, blending nutrition, flavours and presentation to restaurant quality.

    Be a superstar where it matters. To our families.

    At Palm Lake Care, you will find an organisation with a passion to do things differently for the elders of our community, who have helped build the country and lifestyle we enjoy. These are not just residents, or customers. They are family.

    If you gain satisfaction from a rewarding job, then our Chef Manager role provides the opportunity to lead a team and serve people who really enjoy food, and see the difference it makes in their lives and health.

    Work/life balance and a real team

    Food services and hospitality is often about late nights, keeping people away from their families, but meal structures at our communities mean most meals are during the day, leaving the evenings free for you.
