Our Lunch Ladies and Lunch Guys look for hardworking, skilled and dedicated people to help them deliver our outstanding and trusted service. Working at the Lunch Lady is a rewarding experience and accommodates a nice work life balance. Many of the staff in our kitchens are parents themselves and love that they can make a difference in the community and do something special with their time during the day.
Although different jobs in our kitchens will have their own requirements, if hired a full background and police check will be necessary considering we work with children in schools.
