Algeria-born Rachid joined Jewish Care as a minibus driver over 20 years ago. After a two year stint behind the wheel, he turned to his love of cooking, becoming a chef. Today he’s a Chef Manager, leading a team of 18 people -- chefs, housekeeping staff, and general assistants -- handling everything from payroll to meal planning, and of course, cooking, at a 48 resident home.
“Jewish Care is a fantastic place to work, I’ve been here more than 20 years, I wouldn’t have been here as long as that if it wasn’t! Everyone takes care of each other and management offer lots of help and support to staff. Without them, I couldn’t have become a Chef Manager. Thanks to Jewish Care, I now have both food safety and management training under my belt"
