About Dig In:
Our primary goal at Dig In is to ensure every disadvantaged person in Brisbane has access to a filling, nutritious and wholesome meal.
Dig In was established by a group of like-minded entrepreneurs in 2017 with a view to creating the most inclusive and accessible charity in Brisbane. We value working together as a community and aim to achieve this by engaging people from all walks of life to help those in need. Different groups bring different skills, ideas, and values and by working together we can find the best possible solutions for helping others. United behind this common purpose, we aim to develop a platform to do some good and make a difference in our community.
Our organization is structured to limit unnecessary costs and extract the maximum value from our funding to benefit the most people. We work tirelessly to ensure every dollar donated is spent as efficiently as possible, while constantly seeking innovative solutions to fund and expand our mission.
Our founders have taken part in charitable work both in the Brisbane area and overseas. Our experience ranges from volunteering in the local Brisbane area, to helping construct schools in the remote parts of the Borneo jungle. In establishing our own charitable organization, we hope to cultivate a sense of community as well as make a real difference to the lives of those in need.
What will you do?
We are seeking a kitchen manager to help us organise and direct volunteers in our cooking and meal preparation. You will be working in a group of 4 kitchen managers overseeing 10-20 volunteers. You will be required to delegate jobs to volunteers based on the tasks of the day, including meal preparation, fruit salad, garlic bread, reheating and packaging meals.
It is a face-paced but highly rewarding experience intended for someone who is willing to give back to those in need.
