Cranbrook Care is looking for a Kitchenhand to join the team at our multi-award-winning architecturally designed aged care residence, Lansdowne Gardens, in Neutral Bay (Sydney lower North Shore).


Lansdowne Gardens, with the luxury and warmth of a stately home overlooking Sydney Harbour, sets a new standard in residential aged care. It is an Extra Service facility and thereby provides additional ‘hotel’ type services or lifestyle extras, including higher standards of accommodation and increased activities, entertainment, and food choices.



As a Kitchenhand, you will be a part of a cohesive, dynamic team, dedicated to providing the best level of service and care to our residents. You will be part of a team that is effective, capable, and thriving in their work.

Regular shifts across 7.00am to 8.00pm. The facility operates 7 days a week, 365 days a year with shifts including mornings, evenings, weekends, and public holidays. 


Casual roles may lead to permanent part-time opportunities for the right people.

You have a kind and compassionate nature with the ability to deal with sensitive issues in a professional, respectful and caring manner.
