Cook

It is fairly obvious what the job of a cook will entail, but if you have skills in this area would you consider working on an oil rig to put them to the test?

It certainly provides an altogether different environment from where many other cooks work, and yet it is this that makes the job so attractive if you are suitably qualified. Make no mistake though - this is an exceptionally challenging environment to work in, so be sure you have what it takes to do it.

One thing to bear in mind is that an oil rig will be working twenty four hours a day, seven days a week. As such all those workers will need feeding at various times. There are far more than just three meals a day to be served! You need to think about the kind of people you will be feeding too, and what they will expect from a meal. If you like cooking fancy food then a job as a cook on an oil rig will not be for you.

Of course the food should always be of the best quality possible within the budget constraints you have available to you. But while you want to make the most of whatever budget you have, you will also have to feed some hungry people as efficiently as possible. As such the role of a cook is a challenging one - you will need to provide filling and nutritious meals that are tasty for all the crew on the oil rig. Food is their fuel and it is your job to provide it.

You will probably also find yourself taking on other tasks in the kitchen as well. These could include cleaning up the kitchen and making sure you have everything you need. As such the role is perhaps more expansive than it would be if you were a cook in a restaurant or another location. But this is part of the unique challenge that working on an oil rig presents. You simply have to ask yourself whether you can enjoy cooking in this environment. If you think you would, why not apply for a job as a cook on an oil rig now?
