    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
  • Elwick Grange is a modern, purpose-built home in a pleasant residential area close to Hartlepool town centre.

    We offer a high standard of residential care for older people, including individuals with Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia.

    Elwick Grange has a very friendly, homely atmosphere. Some of our rooms even have their own front doors. Throughout the home you’ll find thoughtful touches which encourage residents to socialise with each other and enjoy their time with visitors. For example, we have a seating area in the foyer where many people like to gather and chat. We always have a warm welcome for residents' families and friends.

    Care means everything to us at Elwick Grange and we support and encourage residents in whatever they'd like to do. Our approach focuses on each person as an individual – we make sure everyone has a say in their own care and we involve both residents and their loved ones in planning care and activities.

    To help us get to know each resident, we work with them to compile a ‘life story book’ about their lifetime experiences, their hobbies and their interests. And all of the activities and outings we offer are based on what residents tell us they want to do.

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.
