Welcome to the first in a new series of blog entries where you get to know a little bit more about Planet Cake Staff. We’re starting off with Emma, our lovely Kitchen Operations Manager.
How long have you been with Planet Cake?
I started off in February last year, in an admin role before moving into the Kitchen Operations Manager role in August last year.
What does being the Kitchen Operations Manager involve?
Hard work! Organisation, managing the staff and the day to day running of the production kitchen, including deliveries, orders, client liaison, whatever the day throws at me!
What’s the best thing about your job?
Seeing amazing things happening in the kitchen – watching cakes become fantastic creations before my eyes!
How did you come to Planet Cake?
I was a chef for five years, then I worked in Sales and Events for a few years. I then did a retail baking course at TAFE where I did 18 weeks of cake decorating, and I enjoyed it so much I decided to pursue it further. I saw a part time admin role advertised at PC, and wanted so much to be part of the Planet Cake world that I applied straight away. Paris saw my resume and offered me the full time job of Ops & Events Manager. How could I say no? My love for cakes grew and grew! I eagerly wanted to be part of the kitchen and Paris saw how keen I was, and as the business was growing a Kitchen Ops Manager was needed.
I love what I do! I’m so happy that I have my dream job!!
