Role Responsibility

Meal times are really important to our residents, and your role is crucial to making them as enjoyable as possible.  If you’re passionate about high standards of cleanliness and love to serve good food, then we’d like to hear from you.  You’ll serve nicely prepared meals made by our Chef to our lovely residents.

You’ll be great at making new friends and building relationships, and that way, you’ll know our residents’ dietary requirements and know how to cater for them, so that every meal time is an enjoyable one.

And under instruction of our trained Chef, you’ll learn how to undertake some food and drink preparation.

The Ideal Candidate

Are you a naturally caring person?  Do you make friends easily and interact with a wide range of people in varied situations?  And can you also read, write and work with numbers to a good standard?

Are you also a strong and supportive team player, and willing to learn more about food hygiene and preparation?  If so, we will provide you with all the training and support you need.

Better still, if you are already QCF qualified to Level 2 in Food Hygiene, this is definitely the job for you.

Package Description

In return for your commitment, we offer a great pay and benefits package. This includes:

●          31 days paid leave, including bank/public holidays (pro rata)

●          Opportunity to learn new skills and develop

●          Occupational sick pay scheme

●          Company pension scheme

●          Shop and save discounts
