Working for us

At Cater Care, we’re passionate about what we do and about the residents, customers, and students we serve each day. We have a diverse community of people employed in locations across Australia, and you’ll find working with us is a rewarding experience with many opportunities to grow your career.

We work together and ENJOY ourselves

We take our work seriously, but that doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy ourselves. We like to spend time together. Whether it’s a birthday, competition, BBQ, theme day or other event, there’s always a new way to make our workplace a great place to be.


This is more than just a job for us. It’s an opportunity to impact on someone’s life. We care about our customers and take pride in the excellent service we deliver. We love putting smiles on their faces and building lasting connections with them. In addition to our food, we enjoy contributing to the community through fundraising, sponsoring scholarships and partnering with different communities such as Indigenous Australians.

We work as ONE TEAM

We’re dedicated and passionate about our food and our diverse team has one thing in common: we care about one another. Everyone – from front-line through to senior management – is approachable and happy to lend a hand. New starters are paired up with a friend and given on-the-job training from day one. We make sure that everybody feels comfortable and can enjoy their work.


We hire people who share our values and fit with our culture. That’s what matters most. Skills and experience are also important but they can always be learnt. Our Academy of Learning creates clear development pathways for all our employees and equips them with the skills and experience they need to move into their next role. We invest in our people so they are the best they can be.


Because we value our employees, we have many programs and initiatives that recognise their efforts. Find out more about the benefits associated with being part of the Cater Care team.

Flexible Working Arrangements and Attractive Rosters

We understand the importance of work/life balance and are committed to ensuring you can manage your personal obligations. We encourage flexible working arrangements to accommodate your work, life, and family commitments, with consideration for our business requirements.

Employee Assistance Program

Our Employee Assistance Program is a confidential coaching, counselling and wellbeing service for all our employees and their eligible family members, at no cost to you. It’s a completely independent and confidential counselling service provided by qualified, experienced professionals. The service supports you across a broad range of work and life issues such as stress, anxiety and depression, drug and alcohol, relationship difficulties, grief and loss, health, gambling and addictions, money, self-esteem, and confidence.

Recognition of Service Awards

At Cater Care, we create development opportunities and provide career progression to employees. We recognise the efforts of our long-serving employees through a recognition ceremony attended by workmates and Cater Care executives. It’s an outstanding achievement to receive a Recognition of Service Award and a gift is presented to recognise that service.

Voluntary Internal Job Transfers

Because of our many locations across Australia, there are opportunities for transfer to another site or location within your current state or interstate. If there is a similar position in another location, we’ll try to accommodate your transfer. Transfers allow you to broaden your experience of different work environments and clients. You may be interested in learning about another sector of our organisation or simply want to move for personal reasons. Transfers are a great opportunity to try something new.
