    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.

    Your role

    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
    • Bank holiday enhancements
    • Quality training to develop your skills
    • Fast-track career options
    • Stakeholder pension
    • Childcare vouchers

    About Care UK

    We run over 120 homes and day clubs across the UK. We provide residential, nursing, dementia and end-of-life care for older people. As one of the UK’s leading care home providers, our goal is to help every employee fulfil his or her potential – with first-class training and support.

  • Where you'll work
  • Britten Court, Lowestoft, opened its doors in late 2014 to provide personalised residential and nursing care for older people.

    Britten Court provides specialist nursing and dementia care for up to 80 residents. A day club adjacent to the home also offers day care and respite facilities for local people who live independently in their own homes.

    Everything the dedicated team at Britten Court do is focused on supporting residents to enjoy a fulfilling life, whatever their needs and abilities. We work with each resident and their family to find out all we can about their life stories, interests and preferences.  We then create care and activity plans that will meet and exceed their needs.

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.
