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
  • At Haven Lodge we offer a warm, friendly welcome by the sea.

    Located just metres from the seafront, Haven Lodge is a welcoming care home at the end of a quiet residential cul-de-sac in Clacton-on-Sea, Essex. We provide nursing, respite and end of life care for older people, including individuals with Alzheimer's and other sorts of dementia.

    Our warm, supportive approach involves really getting to know each resident and making sure they're settled and happy. We develop personal care programmes for each individual, including activities based around their interests.

    Every month, we meet with residents and their families for an informal chat. It's another chance to listen to any feedback or suggestions they might have for us. We also compile a monthly newsletter, which we hand out at the meetings.

    We extend our care to residents' loved ones too. Our experienced, friendly team is always there with a listening ear and a cup of tea - we make the time to sit, talk and, if we're asked, offer helpful advice. Relatives find this very comforting and appreciate knowing that we're there for them as well.
