Please meet Nozuko Klaas, our very capable and cheerful Kitchen Assistant, who has been with us for four years.
Nozuko gives her current job the thumbs-up for a variety of reasons: the other staff members are friendly and helpful, the hours are very manageable and a five-day week beats working in a restaurant, like she used to. She says “Working with homeless people has opened my eyes to their problems, and I can see they didn’t choose this life. We can be proud to be a place where we can help a bit with their circumstances.”
Nozuko has two children who live with her mother so they can be close to school, and she also looks after her niece’s 2-year old daughter while employment opportunities are scarce.
Filleting some fresh hake – maybe not her most favourite chore? “I don’t mind, I like working with food and learning new things, filleting fish is all part of a normal day!”
Thank you, Nozuko, for your steady performance, adaptability and energy. We are lucky to have you on our team.
