Abbeyfield is more than a home; it’s a neighbourhood, a community, a family. Our core behaviours are to be welcoming to everyone, celebrate the positives, work collaboratively, take responsibility, and be adaptable to changing circumstances.
Your role at Abbeyfield
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.
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.
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.
This position is part time for 14 hours per week every Saturday and Sunday from 08:00 - 15:30
