Cooking up a storm at Hotel Urban! 

13th May, 2021  

Joel has always had a passion for cooking, and joined Job Centre Australia straight after school, to prepare for and chase his dream job as a chef. Living with autism, Joel received tailored employment pathway support through our youth diversity and disability employment services, and we’re proud to say is thriving!  

After commencing work as a Kitchen Hand at Hotel Urban in St. Leonards, Joel’s incredible work ethic was recognised and he’s secured himself a chef apprenticeship, mentored by the two head chefs and supported by inclusive staff led by General Manager John Dickson.  

Congratulations Joel, and now we can all say “Yes, Chef!”
