When you work for Care UK, you join UK’s leading care providers. Whatever the role, no two days will be the same and full training will be provided in a welcoming environment.
You’re a hard-working individual with experience working in a busy kitchen. Ideally, you’ve already got some experience in a care home setting. You’re also a caring person who understands how important mealtimes are to older, vulnerable people. You’re a good team player who takes pride in your job and is happy to go the extra mile. You know the importance of food hygiene and health and safety rules. Above all, you want to be a valued member of a friendly team. You’re keen to progress in your catering career and do your bit to improve the nutrition of older people.
Reporting to the Head Chef, you’ll make sure all kitchen equipment and areas are properly cleaned. As part of our hard-working team, you’ll also help prepare tasty, nutritious meals that our residents and guests will enjoy. For example, you’ll take pressure off the chefs by cooking breakfast in the mornings. At main mealtimes, you’ll add those much-loved finishing touches like custard or gravy. You’ll be responsible for safe, hygienic food storage and for making sure kitchen equipment and cleaning materials are kept in their correct places. In return, we’ll give you lots of support, training and opportunities to progress in your career.
As a Kitchen Assistant at Care UK, you can look forward to:
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.
At Pinetum we'll lay on a warm welcome for residents, friends and family.
Pinetum is a modern and comfortable purpose-built home located within the grounds of the Countess of Chester Hospital. We provide nursing, residential, respite and day care for older people, including individuals who are living with early stages of Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia. We also offer specialist care for adults with complex care needs such as brain and spinal injury.
Our team enjoys getting to know each person as an individual and creating personalised care plans that encourage people to live as independently and actively as possible. In our complex care suite, our highly skilled nursing, therapy and care teams provide around-the-clock intensive care and support patients to lead fulfilling lives.
As well as residential care, we provide flexible care for older people who need some additional support during the daytime. We treat residents and day guests as family members and always aim to go that extra mile, for example by arranging special experiences and outings. And the home has a very friendly and sociable atmosphere – we always have a big welcome waiting for families, friends and any other visitors.
