Join the I Hate Cooking Team

Working with us. 

  • Would you love flexible and fulfilling work where you set your own hours? 
  • Do you love cooking and lose yourself in recipes? 
  • Are you ready to make a difference in your local community?

As a valued cook, you will prepare meals from our extensive menu in our clients’ homes. 

Run your own patch but with unlimited support. A tried and tested recipe for success!

Our cooks love how their work fits in with their families and other activities. We have built an incredibly supportive and collaborative community and get rave reviews from our clients.

What We Do

I Hate Cooking is an in-home cooking service. Clients select their meals from an extensive menu, and our cooks prepare meals over a 2-3 hour period and fill their clients’ fridges. 

Our clients range from time-poor people to people with special dietary requirements. Our Cook, Eat, Repeat program also provides in-home cooking lessons for NDIS clients. 



Jackie hated cooking. She had all of the gadgets and even had her own Thermomix, but still needed help in the kitchen. It only made sense for her to book with us to help on the days she was late home from work. She is a Coeliac so toasties for dinner don’t work for her family. She has a cook once a month, which gives her family enough meals to get by when they are busy with after school activities or work commitments.


Luke has worked as a Chef for many years. He wanted to get out of the full time commercial kitchen, while continuing with his passion of cooking for people. He loves the flexibility that I Hate Cooking has given him.


Kate is a mum of 3 kids. She started cooking for I Hate Cooking in Mackay, when she had 2 children. Since she has had a 3rd baby, she is now working on our admin team, helping with the day to day processes in the business. Her knowledge of how the business worked, provided a perfect opportunity to stay involved in the business but work remotely, when it suited her.

Rene - NDIS Client

Rene found the service invaluable, and could not have progressed to being independent in the kitchen again without I Hate Cooking’s support and guidance. The time has come for her life to be less about support workers and more about living for herself. She says she would highly recommend I Hate Cooking to anyone interested in improving their independence or skills in relation to food and cooking.  She is thankful that we adapted our program to her needs, Rene was  deeply grateful that our service could be so flexible and agile to allow her to embrace and enjoy cooking at home again.

How We Do It


We make it easy to get up and running; just ask our team members! You will be provided with training, infrastructure, and support to be set up for success. 

By joining the IH8 Cooking team, you become the licensed representative in your area. Still, you have your own ABN and run your business as your own – with all the flexibility and opportunity this structure offers. 

You are your own boss, but you are heavily supported; we take care of marketing, booking, and invoicing.

Our cooks rave about the support they receive and the incredible team. 

And infrastructure, leaving you to look after your customers and build your client base within your local community.

Aw 💖💖💖 Have I mentioned how much I love my job? Not because of the gifts but the gratitude 🙏


I’ve been on career break from my corporate job for the past 11 months. Today I put in my resignation.  Bek Daley you are stuck with me now. Thank you for this life changing experience to be part of your team


So lucky to work with such amazing, lovely people!


I’m so lucky and proud to have a job that I still truly love.. thanks to my good friend for introducing me to this…. Bek Daley and crew, we always talk about what we give to our customers and what we receive from them but what this job has given to me….moving to a country town and being isolated it gave me freedom and independence and courage. 


I left my very stressful job of 15 years last year. This opportunity has been so life changing for our family and my wellbeing.


I took a redundancy late year from my corporate slog. Always wanting more and no balance at all. I LOVE my career change to IH8 and won’t be looking back at all.
