Work life balance...Three words that do not often come up in a chef’s vocabulary, yet this is exactly what Care UK is offering. With shifts including every other weekend off this is a great way for a chef to continue working with fresh food, cooked to the highest standards and still have time for family life outside work.

NVQ level 2 and 3 cookery levels would be preferred but experience in similar roles in the care, hotel /restaurant industry or event catering but certainly working with fresh food.

Greville House in Richmond is a welcoming care home which provides personalised nursing, residential and respite care for older people. We also provide intermediate care for individuals who require additional support before returning home after a stay in hospital.
We have a dementia suite with ten rooms where we provide specialist care for residents who are living with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia. Our teams working in this suite have had specific dementia training so they’re able to meet the unique needs of these residents.
Our experienced and friendly team respects residents’ individuality and dignity at all times. We work with residents and family members to create individual care plans and we involve everyone in decision making about important aspects of life at the home, like what we have on our menus. We also encourage residents to decorate their rooms to their own tastes.
We have a great location, close to good public transport links and just a few minutes’ walk away from Richmond Park and the River Thames. The shops and facilities of Richmond town centre are nearby too.
