Dream bigger on benefits

At SilverChef we recognise that benefits mean different things to different people, depending on their lifestyle, circumstances and preferred ways of working.

Have a look at the stories below about how our people use their benefits for everything from work-life balance to personal growth.

Our people build SilverChef’s financial wellbeing; so we go beyond a salary payment to invest in theirs. 

  • competitive remuneration
  • performance incentive payments
  • annual remuneration review and benchmarking
  • financial wellbeing education program
  • Paraplegic Benefit Fund
  • annual Amplify Awards that financially reward high performers
