About The Role
In your role as a Kitchen Assistant at Oakland, you’ll value one thing above all. Kindness. It carries across every aspect of our Dementia, Nursing, Residential and Specialist care homes. Every single person who works here understands that our Residents are people just like them with their own stories to tell. By joining HC-One you’ll have a wonderful opportunity to give something back to those people.
Hourly rate is subject to experience and qualifications.
As a Kitchen Assistant that will mean helping to prepare and serve nutritious, healthy meals that our residents will love. You’ll demonstrate the highest standards in cleanliness, food safety and hygiene. And, whether you’re maintaining food supplies and fridge/freezer temperatures, showing new starters how to use the equipment or scrubbing that last bit of spilled food from inside the oven, you’ll always have Resident wellbeing in mind above anything else.
HC-One are looking for a Kitchen Assistant with some kitchen experience, but what’s for certain is that you’ll have either an NVQ2 in Catering or Food Preparation or the willingness to study for one. Great record keeping and organisational skills will be essential, as will the ability to follow recipes. And, whenever you communicate with a Resident or co-worker, you’ll be truly considerate and kind.
Well, after all, it’s just in your nature.
