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
Opened in 2008, Tor-Na-Dee has a great location in Milltimber, on the outskirts of Aberdeen.
We provide residential, respite and nursing care for older people, including individuals with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia, physical disabilities or learning disabilities. We also offer supportive and compassionate end of life care.
Our friendly, dedicated team makes sure that each resident feels settled and that their loved ones feel welcome at all times. We support everyone to carry on doing the things that are important to them, so that they can stay as active and independent as possible. We offer residents lots of choices and always involve them in decisions about their care. And all of our activities are based around residents’ own interests and abilities.
Tor-Na-Dee is a very vibrant home – we have a beautiful countryside setting but are still very close to all that the city has to offer. We aim to be innovative in everything we do and are always looking for new ideas to bring into the home. We have an active relatives’ group – the members recently worked with a counsellor to produce the very successful 'Relatives' guide to Tor-Na-Dee’.
Maintaining the highest possible standards of care is very important to us and to help us do this, we work with the Grampian Integrated Care Pathway for Palliative Care.
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.
