You’re a caring, positive person. You’ve got experience as a cleaner or domestic assistant and ideally, you’ve already worked in a care home. You’ve got a good basic education. This should include GCSE English and Maths (or the equivalent). You also know about health and safety regulations. You’re a good team player – polite, presentable and mindful of older people’s privacy. When you join Care UK, you’ll get excellent support, quality training and fast-track career opportunities from one of the UK’s leading care home providers.
Residents are at the heart of everything we do. And the care home is their home. So your role in keeping it clean and tidy is vital. As part of a friendly team led by the Head Housekeeper, you’ll be responsible for carrying out all cleaning duties. You’ll make sure daily and deep cleaning tasks are carried out to a high standard, complying with infection control guidelines. It’s important that you respect the privacy and individual needs of the residents. You’ll also need to be comfortable doing some paperwork and re-stocking cleaning supplies as required. It’s a rewarding role and a supportive workplace where we all pull together.
As a Domestic 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
- Quality training to develop your skills
- Fast-track career options
- Stakeholder pension
- Childcare vouchers
- Free uniform
- Thousands of online and in-store discounts

- Where you'll work
Our aim is to help older people to live happier, healthier and more fulfilling lives
We have been providing high quality care for older people for 30 years. Today our 100-plus residential care homes enable more than 7,000 people to continue living active and independent lives in warm, safe and comfortable surroundings. Personalised care is at the heart of what we do. Many of our homes deliver a comprehensive range of care under one roof, including nursing, respite and dementia care. We appreciate that no two residents are the same, so our compassionate and experienced nurses and carers ensure that each person receives care that’s tailored to their unique needs, personality and wishes.
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.
