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 offer a friendly service tailor made around each resident's unique needs.
Conveniently located close to local amenities, Collingwood Court is a modern, purpose-designed care home in Chirton, North Shields. We provide personalised residential and respite care for older people, including individuals with Alzheimer's and other types of dementia. We also offer supportive and sensitive end of life care.
Our person-centred approach focuses on really getting to know each resident so that we can provide care that's tailored to their needs and interests. We're very family-orientated and meet with relatives regularly to discuss care plans and make decisions together.
Collingwood Court includes a day club for older people living in the local area. Day club members and residents spend time socialising and all of our activities, outings and events are available to day guests. We work hard to maintain residents' links to the community and we're involved with lots of local groups and organisations.
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.
