Job Introduction

We want to keep our Houses as welcoming as possible.  Every resident should enjoy a clean and well maintained environment that is presented to the highest standard.  Your role is key to this.

Role Responsibility

You’ll work with the cleaning and housekeeping schedules as set by the Housekeeper.  These duties may cover cleaning of the residents’ flats and rooms, the communal areas and offices. You’ll respect residents’ wishes and preferences.  And you work well as part of a team to ensure all residents’ needs are met in relation to cleaning, housekeeping and infection control.

You will be responsible for the use of housekeeping equipment and cleaning products, and use these in line with agreed budgets and COSHH requirements.  You aim to reduce wastage and report any defects in a timely manner.

Finally, you’ll also ensure that store areas and equipment are kept clean, hygienic and tidy at all times.

The Ideal Candidate

First and foremost, you will be a caring person who is compassionate, and understands the needs of older people.  Additionally, you will be able to communicate and interact well with a wide range of people in varied situations.  Naturally, as you might expect in a modern workplace, you must be able to read, write and work with numbers to a good standard.  And it is essential that you are a strong and supportive team player.

To be highly suited to the role, you should be passionate about standards of cleanliness and hygiene, and will be keen to ensure that things are always neat and tidy.  Better still, if you’re already experienced working in a similar role, may be within services for older people, then this is definitely the job for you.

Package Description

In line with your casual (bank) worker assignment agreement, we offer competitive pay that is in line with those of our employed staff in similar roles.  And depending on how many hours you work, you will accrue leave at an equivalent rate of 31 days paid leave in a full calendar year, inclusive of bank/public holidays (pro rata). And in order to carry out this role, you will be provided with mandatory training to get you started, as part of a comprehensive induction.  To be eligible to work for us in future assignments, you will be expected to keep your mandatory training up to date.

About the Company

Abbeyfield House is situated in the charming market town of Beccles which lies on the River Waveney on the edge of the stunning Norfolk Broads and a five minute walk away from the quay.  Purpose built in 1987, our house is home to 11 residents who have the privacy of their own accommodation with the bonus of companionship from other residents and support from our dedicated team of staff.

Most of our rooms come with a newly fitted kitchen area for our residents to retain their independence should they wish.  We have a bright and airy conservatory where our residents and their loved ones or families can sit and chat looking out into our beautiful garden. Our residents enjoy regular coffee mornings and visits from local schoolchildren who come to entertain them.

An honest and open culture is encouraged by our home manager and her team, who are supported with regular team meetings and ongoing up-to-date training.  Our team is made up of committed, caring and professional people who are dedicated to ensuring that our residents are supported to do the things that they want to do, including the little things that matter.

As part of our team, you will have excellent opportunities to work with some amazing, caring people and give something back to our wonderful residents by enriching their lives.  If this sounds like somewhere where you would like to work, please do contact us.
