Offshore Baker Jobs


Being an offshore baker is different than being a baker on land, as you will often find the baking job includes being the night cook as well. Not only will you be baking bread and desserts, but you'll be cooking meals for the crew as well.  For the night shift, this means preparing two hot meals as well as doing all the baking for the day shift as well. That's a lot of baking.

The offshore baker - night cook is where cooks and bakers start off at on an offshore oil platform.  This is a great place to start, and is where all bakers and cooks begin, as you won't need to have any previous offshore experience.  You should, however, have some land-based experience either as a cook, a baker, or both. There are many catering companies that service the offshore rigs, and if you have some experience, you'll have no problem getting on.

The offshore baker - night cook has a really important job. You see, he's not only a cook and a baker, he's also an important moral guy. Good food makes a huge difference in the morale levels of the crew, so your work will go a long way in making the crew happy. 

If you would like to work in the galley on an offshore rig, but don't have sufficient cooking or baking experience, then consider hiring on as a galley hand or utility hand. You'll be cleaning and doing dishes, but you'll also be working closely with the cooks and the bakers. If you ask questions and play your cards right, they will gladly teach you everything you know, and you'll be able to work up the ladder to a cooks position and even a Chef's position once you have some experience under your belt.
