Care UK is one of the largest care providers in the UK with over 120 homes. Residents are at the heart of everything we do and so we are offering Cleaners and Housekeeping Assistants the opportunity to make a difference to our resident’s lives whilst undertaking a very important role. This is a chance to work for an industry leader with a holistic and person centred approach to care, and working as part of a close team there is real opportunity to grow and develop your career.

Cavell Court, located in the heart of Cringleford, is a new purpose-built care home that opened in July 2015.
Cavell Court is an 80-bed care home in Cringleford, just a few miles from Norwich. The home provides a range of round-the-clock care services and every aspect of the home is designed to ensure that residents continue to enjoy a fulfilling life.
Residents keep busy and active, whether that means continuing to do lifelong hobbies, or discovering new interests. Our specialist lifestyle team gets to know each resident, their passions and pet-hates, hobbies and life stories before designing an activity plan tailored to your loved one’s unique needs.
All of the Cavell Court care home team understand that the process of choosing residential care for a loved one is an emotional process. We’re here to make things as easy as possible, supporting you from the first time you look around Cavell Court through to your loved one moving in, and throughout the time they’re with us.
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.
