More about the job:
Under the supervision of the Chef, the role of Kitchen Assistant is to prepare cold meals, such as sandwiches and salads for the enjoyment of residents and to ensure that all kitchen areas are clean and hygienic. You will also assist the Chef with general kitchen duties; carry out deep-cleaning of surfaces and equipment; and ensure that all regulations for food health and hygiene are adhered to at all times.
More about you:
Able to read and understand English, you are friendly, kind, honest, reassuring and an effective communicator. Ideally, you already have experience of working in a similar environment. As well as being a good team worker, you can prioritise and work on your own initiative. We especially want to recruit people who share our goal of delivering the expert care and attention to detail that our residents deserve. That means cherishing the individual needs of residents and their families and putting those needs at the centre of everything we do each day.
More about us:
Colten Care is an expanding family-owned business with 20 beautifully appointed care homes across Dorset, Hampshire, Wiltshire and West Sussex. Our services include residential, general nursing, dementia and short-stay care. We are a prestigious, award-winning healthcare provider that champions the latest approaches to person-centred care. Each of our homes has a distinct character while retaining that all-important sense of 'home.' We play an active role in furthering dementia friendly communities as part of our work.
Our aims are simple: to be recognised as both the care home 'provider of choice' and 'employer of choice.'
