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
Henleaze Gardens care home is a brand new, state-of-the-art care home being built in Southmead, Bristol. Here, quality care will be delivered in luxury hotel-style surroundings. We will be opening its doors later in 2019, when our experienced team will provide full time nursing and residential care, short term respite care and specialist dementia care. At Henleaze Gardens, we will support residents to live life the way they want. We will get to know them well so that we can create care and lifestyle plans – even menus – that are tailored to their needs and tastes. Keeping busy is the best way to maintain independence and physical and mental wellbeing as we get older. That’s why we will support your loved one to do the things that bring them meaning and fulfilment. The home will have its own coffee shop, comfy cinema room and hair and beauty salon, so your loved one will be free to enjoy a fulfilling lifestyle.
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.
