You

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.




Your role


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:

  • Competitive pay - we pay more than the average
  • Flexible hours, including a choice of day, night or weekend shifts
  • 25 days' annual leave
  • Bank holiday enhancements
  • Fast-track career options, e.g. to chef
  • Quality training to develop your skills
  • Stakeholder pension
  • Childcare vouchers
  • Free uniform
  • Thousands of online and in-store discounts



About Care UK


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.

  • Where you'll work
  • Grangewood is a light and airy care home where you'll discover a strong community atmosphere and gold standard care.

    Grangewood is a purpose-built care home in the village of Shiney Row, close to Houghton-le-Spring in Tyne and Wear. We provide high quality residential and respite care for older people, including people living with Alzheimer's and other types of dementia.

    We're very proud of having been awarded Sunderland City Council's gold standard for quality care. The awards cover a range of criteria, including offering residents a healthy, nutritious diet, delivering high standards of hygiene and health and safety, and providing a range of activities to promote residents' all-round health and wellbeing.

    When you first visit Grangewood you'll notice the strong feeling of community presence. The majority of our residents were born in the local area and have lived here all their lives. Most of our team members, some of whom have been here since we opened in 2005, are also local. So often a new resident will move in and immediately be among old friends and familiar faces.
