Life at Compass

Culinary Careers

As one of our chefs, you could work, quite literally, anywhere! In corporate workplaces, cafes and retail outlets, in remote mine camps, offshore on oil rigs, leisure venues, universities, schools, hospitals or senior living residences, defence establishments, prisons and a whole host of other workplaces across Australia.

We recognise that every meal is an experience, that everyone’s tastes are different and that needs vary between individuals. Our culinary team is supported by our own in-house team of nutritionists and dietitians, talented Executive Chefs and a team of ‘Operational Excellence’ experts.

We may serve around 4 billion meals a year worldwide, but everyone has to meet individual tastes. The recipes and menus our award-winning chefs create, combined with the best ingredients sourced direct fresh from the growers and the skills of our service teams, all come together on that lunch plate, in that sandwich, in that cup of coffee or on that tray of canapés.
