The Ignatius Jesuit Centre is seeking an enthusiastic and passionate Cook to join our full-time year-round Kitchen team; someone whose knowledge and experience of food includes an understanding of local, organic, vegetarian, sustainable & ethical food production. Our kitchen operates in a holistic manner from food preparation to planning and cleaning.

We provide 3 meals daily to those on silent retreats: from weekend retreats to 40-day training programs to a 3-month live-in program as well as to our conference and business clients.

  • Can you work calmly under pressure with a positive ‘whatever is needed’ attitude;
  • Do you know how to think outside of the box and grasp that big picture;
  • Are you solutions-oriented; adaptable to change such as the needs of an expanding client base;
  • Can you commit to working in a cooperative and kind environment;
  • Are you responsible and able to work with limited supervision and as part of an active team;
  • Do you have solid organization skills, an attention to detail, the ability to prioritize your work, and are you simply wonderful at multitasking;
  • Will you be open and willing to working evenings, holidays and weekends;
  • Do you have experience in high volume kitchens working within a small and dedicated team?

We offer a fully employer paid Extended Health & Benefits Plan and an employer matched Pension Plan. This position offers the full time cook a chance to break away from the hourly job and experience the security of a salaried wage.
