John Oliver, Chef Manager

Meet John Oliver, Chef Manager for our Offshore, Northern Endeavour FPSO in the Northern Territory. He’s been with Compass Group for 7.5 years, holding previous roles like catering manager, camp boss, and chief cook. John moved to Australia from the UK eight years ago to follow his dream of working in the country, doing what he loves to do: cooking.

Ever since starting with Compass I have had nothing but support in my career. My time with Compass has been working at many different sites in various positions which keeps you fresh. You are constantly learning every day in the challenging and diverse sites we have.”

John says he likes working for Compass Group not only because he loves a challenge but also because of the option to change roles and progress at your own pace. He has also made friends in the industry. His work colleagues have become more than just colleagues. They’ve become a part of the Compass family.

“For me it’s not just a job, it’s a way of life. Working with Compass gives you the opportunity to progress at your own pace, safe in the knowledge that you will get the support you need. Thanks Compass for giving me the opportunity to create a new life not just for me but for my family too.”
