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. When you join Care UK, you’ll get excellent support, quality training and fast-track career opportunities from one of the UK’s leading care home providers.
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
- Flexible hours, including a choice of day, night or weekend shifts
- Bank holiday enhancements

- Where you'll work
We offer high quality care and an attractive location in a lovely village.
Stanecroft care home is set in the attractive village of North Holmwood near Dorking in Surrey. We offer residential and respite care to older people who are living with Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia.
Our friendly, highly skilled team is very experienced in caring for older people with a range of needs. We get to know each resident extremely well, so that we can create personalised care plans that take into account their individual experiences, interests and aspirations. Our aim is for each person to lead a happy and fulfilling life that’s as active and independent as possible. As well as planning regular activities for residents, we encourage and support them to take part in the day-to-day life of the home in any way they wish, which might mean laying tables for dinner, baking cakes for everyone to enjoy or watering plants.
Stanecroft has a warm, friendly atmosphere and relatives’ families and friends are always welcome. The home is tastefully decorated, with light and airy rooms and living areas, and our gardens are fully accessible and secure, so that residents who are living with dementia can explore them independently.

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.
