Our day centre is in the heart of Whangārei, providing anyone in-need with space to rest, have a kai and seek support. We are looking for people to support our busy cooks in the kitchen. 

We provide breakfast and lunch services to our visitors and this role will include activities such as:

  • Clearing/pack up/down of services
  • Cleaning - helping make sure the space is clean and ready for the next shift

We are open Monday to Saturday and are looking for support on each of these days.

The shift would be from 10am - 2pm. 

We are ideally looking for people who can commit to one shift on a weekly basis, who want to be part of our team and care about providing real support to our community.


Orientation and in-house training will be provided.
