Abbeyfield is a charity for elderly people, providing housing to more than 7,000 residents across the UK and internationally. It is our mission to enhance our residents’ quality of life through high quality accommodation in a stimulating environment, maintaining a socially active life.
We’re committed to providing the highest standards of care to our residents, and we believe that great care starts with great people. The interests of our valued staff and residents sit at the heart of what we do.
Abbeyfield is more than a home; it’s a neighbourhood, a community, a family. Are you ready to be a part of it?
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.
