Full time Catering Assistant required to join the team!
£8.91 per hour
8am - 7.30pm including alternate weekends
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.
Our Knebworth care home is all about enjoying a superb lifestyle and quality care in beautiful surroundings.
Our experienced team provides permanent nursing and residential care, including care for people who are living with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia.
We work closely with you and your loved one to understand their life history, skills and the people and places that are important to them. And, because we believe that life doesn’t stop when a person moves into a care home, we also find out their wishes and aims for the future. Then we create care and lifestyle plans that reflect your loved ones needs, wishes and preferences, that enable them to live each day in the way they want.
At our Knebworth care home we’re dedicated to enabling residents to enjoy rewarding activities and meaningful experiences every day. Some residents find meaning and purpose from helping out around the home, folding laundry, laying the tables for lunch, or helping out in the garden.
Our lifestyle coordinators also plan fun group and one-to-one activities tailored to residents’ hobbies and interests. We also get out and about whenever we can, to the shops, a local pub for lunch, or a stately home. However, there’s lots to keep us occupied in our beautiful home, including a pub and café, a cinema lounge and a hair and beauty salon
