Are you looking for a Housekeeping Assistant/Domestic role that makes a real difference?
Do you pride yourself with creating and maintaining a clean, relaxing, homely environment for others?
Yes? Here is what makes Care UK different.
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.
Led by the Head Housekeeper, you’ll be responsible for carrying out all cleaning duties including communal areas, resident’s rooms and en-suites. You’ll make sure on a daily basis that 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.
You may or may not have worked in a care home before but it is important to us that you are a caring, positive person with a strong attention to detail whilst taking pride in ensuring a clean and welcoming environment for our residents as well as families and visitors.
We value our colleagues, rewarding them with a great benefits package. This includes, but is not limited to; competitive hourly rates with paid overtime, bank holiday enhancements, free uniform, childcare vouchers, cycle to work scheme, a wide range of retail discounts and access to a calendar of free training to help enhance your skills.
- Where you'll work
We provide residential and respite care for older people, including individuals with dementia.
Broadwater Lodge is an attractive, purpose-built care home located in the small town of Farncombe, close to Godalming in Surrey. We provide residential and respite care for older people, including individuals with Alzheimer's and other types of dementia, and we have our own day club. We also offer compassionate and supportive end of life care.
At Broadwater Lodge, we provide person-centred care that promotes an independent and active lifestyle. To help us create individualised care plans, we work with residents and family members to complete 'life story' books, all about each person’s experiences and interests. Offering the very highest standards of care is very important to us and we're currently implementing the Gold Standards Framework to demonstrate the quality of our end of life care.
Our dedicated, specialist team has created a very warm, homely atmosphere where residents feel settled and their loved ones are always welcome. Our reception areas feature large digital photo frames that show changing images of our activities, so that visitors can get a good insight into daily life at the home.
We have a day club for older people who live in the local area. It’s in the same building as the care home and we encourage day club members and residents to socialise, to take part in activities in either setting and to dine together.
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.
