What your typical day involves

Whilst there's unlikely to be a typical day for a Home Assistant, you may be asked to.

  • Maintain high standards of cleanliness within the home, working closely with our other domestic teams.
  • Physical assistance with meal times
  • Ensure our residents are kept happy, by carrying out hospitality and activity related duties
  • Organise and maintain housekeeping stocks for day to day use and raise any issues to the Housekeeping Supervisor as you go.

Who we're looking for

You're friendly and caring, someone who wants to make a difference to people's lives - no matter how big or small that difference may be. A great communicator, you're happy rolling your sleeves up and getting involved, always completing your work to a high standard in an organised way. Working in a close-knit team, multi-tasking and taking on different roles, you'll wear many hats, but importantly, you'll laugh, have fun and make lasting memories with our residents.

What's in it for you?

  • Comprehensive induction, on-going training and development
  • Your DBS Check (£40) paid for
  • NEST work place pension
  • Hot meal provided on a 12-hour shift
