Offshore Baker Jobs

Offshore baker jobs usually include the role of night cook as well, so you will often see this position referred to as 'night cook \ baker'. In this role, you will be serving the night shift two hot meals, and baking bread, snacks and desserts for all 4 hot meals typically served in a 24 hour period on the offshore oil rigs. 

Offshore baker \ night cook jobs are the entry level cooking position on an oil rig. This is a great job to get offshore with; it doesn't require any previous offshore experience, and if you have worked as a cook or baker for any length of time, you should have no problems getting on with one of the many catering contractors that service the oil platforms offshore. 

The offshore baker plays an important role on an offshore rig - the crew is far away from home and land, and having a good roll or loaf of homemade bread is a real morale booster and crowd pleaser as well. Desserts are important too, as is preparing good meals for the hungry night crew. You'll find that offshore bakers enjoy their job very much; getting that much love from the people you are feeding - and you are really appreciated by hungry workers after a long shift -  is a great bonus.  

One should have some cooking and baking experience to qualify for this position. Those who would like to work in the kitchen, but don't have any cooking or baking experience will be considered for galley hand or utility hand positions.
