You’re a hard-working individual with experience working in a busy kitchen. Ideally, you’ve already got some experience in a care home setting. You’re also a caring person who understands how important mealtimes are to older, vulnerable people. You’re a good team player who takes pride in your job and is happy to go the extra mile. You know the importance of food hygiene and health and safety rules. Above all, you want to be a valued member of a friendly team. You’re keen to progress in your catering career and do your bit to improve the nutrition of older people.
Reporting to the Head Chef, you’ll make sure all kitchen equipment and areas are properly cleaned. As part of our hard-working team, you’ll also help prepare tasty, nutritious meals that our residents and guests will enjoy. For example, you’ll take pressure off the chefs by cooking breakfast in the mornings. At main mealtimes, you’ll add those much-loved finishing touches like custard or gravy. You’ll be responsible for safe, hygienic food storage and for making sure kitchen equipment and cleaning materials are kept in their correct places. In return, we’ll give you lots of support, training and opportunities to progress in your career.
As a Kitchen Assistant at Care UK, you can look forward to:
- Competitive pay – we pay more than the average
- Flexible hours, including a choice of day, night or weekend shifts
- Bank holiday enhancements
- Fast-track career options, e.g. to chef
- Quality training to develop your skills
- Stakeholder pension
- Childcare vouchers
- Free uniform
- Thousands of online and in-store discounts
About Care UK
We run over 120 homes and day clubs across the UK. We provide residential, nursing, dementia and end-of-life care for older people. As one of the UK’s leading care home providers, our goal is to help every employee fulfil his or her potential – with first-class training and support.
- Where you'll work
Our new care home in Chichester opens in the autumn of 2021. We’ll provide quality
care for older people in a luxurious setting.
Our new Chichester Grange care home is taking shape on Grosvenor Road. Here,
our experienced and committed team will deliver the best in permanent and short-
term residential, nursing and specialist dementia care.
Like in all Care UK homes, the care we provide will be fully tailored to the individual
needs, interests and preferences of each person we care for. We call this person-
centred care. We are also passionate about ensuring that residents and their families
are fully involved in decisions around their care. That way, residents feel in control,
and receive the care they need in the way they wish.
When you first set foot inside our Chichester Grange care home – with its hair and
beauty salon, cinema room, welcoming café and inviting dining rooms – you’ll be
forgiven for thinking you’ve entered a five-star hotel. We believe that moving into a
care home is just another part of life, and one that should be enjoyed to the full. So
everything from the design of the home, to the meals we provide, and the activities
we organise are all focused on supporting residents to feel like royalty.
Care UK is committed to ensuring that it employs people with the right mix of talent, skills and potential and will assess every applicant fairly regardless of race, gender, religion, sexual orientation, responsibilities for dependents, age, physical/mental disability or offending background. Having a criminal record will not necessarily prevent you from working with us, it will depend on the nature of the role and background of any offence.
