Key skills or qualities needed:
Are you a hard-working individual with experience working in a busy kitchen? Do you want to work in an environment where you can help make a difference in the lives of our residents?

Catering assistants within our older people’s homes assist and support catering staff in the day-to-day operation of the service, as directed, to ensure a high standard of food preparation.

Working in a care home environment, you will not only be supporting from a catering point of view but will build relationships with our residents to ensure they are living happy, healthy and supported lives.

  • A basic understanding of written and spoken English
  • A basic understanding of what care is
  • The heart and desire to care for others

If you’re someone who takes pride in your work and happy to go the extra mile, then we’d love to hear from you.
