    Are you a food production guru looking for a change from the ordinary?


    From the Gulf of Mexico to the Arctic Ocean and from the Pacific Coast to the Atlantic, Sodexo provides Quality of Life Services that support the needs of our clients in the Energy & Resources market segments, reinforcing client operations in both onshore and offshore environments.


    Sodexo Energy & Resources, in partnership with Ballard Hospitalityis seeking a talented Food Production Manager 2 for its Sulphur, Louisiana location to lead the food production operations at an 800-1000-person, remote construction camp.  Reporting directly to the Executive Chef, this manager will have oversight of 35 Ballard Hospitality employees and eight non-union, hourly Sodexo employees and will have full responsibility to lead, implement and drive all cost controls related to food production including inventory, ordering, adherence to standardized recipes and controlling and minimizing food waste.
