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.
The Willows care home offers quality care in a warm, relaxed and homely atmosphere.
The Willows is a modern, purpose-built care home set in a quiet residential area of Middlesbrough and is sometimes known locally as Woodside Resource Centre. We offer specialist nursing, residential, respite and day care for older people who have Alzheimer's or other forms of dementia.
We also offer a flexible day care service to older people living in the area who have dementia, as well as compassionate and supportive end of life care.
We work hard to make sure residents feel comfortable, settled and happy. Our team at The Willows spend time getting to know residents so that we can provide personalised care and offer the food and activities they like most.
We encourage residents to stay active and there’s something for everyone with regular outings, visits from professional entertainers and activities such as painting, memory games and card making. We even have a ‘wandering pathway’ within the home, so that residents with dementia are able to explore freely. You can learn more about daily life at The Willows here.
