  • The Role

    10 hours per month : Saturday 5 hours / Sunday 5 hours - 1st full weekend in the month

    This is a really interesting and varied role, providing a number of important services to our valued residents. For instance, you will provide the catering service, to include ordering and preparation of ingredients, cooking and meal preparation.

    But you'll also supervise a small team of General Assistants, and through them, you will ensure that the House is maintained in a clean and tidy condition, and is safe for our residents.

    You will also undertake administrative duties, such as record keeping, maintaining tenancy agreements and keeping an eye on expenditure.

    And you’ll go out of your way to ensure that all residents feel welcome, included and involved in the house(s), and matters affecting the house are communicated to them as required.

    You may also organise social activities, consulting with residents and volunteer groups, so that all residents remain involved in the community in line with their individual needs, aspirations and abilities.

    Finally, you’ll also take responsibility for ensuring all staff, volunteers, trades persons and other visitors are managed effectively when on site.

    About You

    Are you a naturally caring person, who is compassionate, and understands the needs of older people? Can you interact well with and build strong working relationships a wide range of people in varied situations?

    And in a modern workplace, as you would expect, you should be able to use computers and IT applications, and be able to read, write and work with numbers to a good standard.

    A strong and supportive team player, you’ll also need to be a competent cook, who can keep to a budget. You’ll also be skilled in supervising and supporting your team of General Assistants, and will know how to get the best from them.

    If you are already experienced in working in a similar role within services for older people, and have knowledge of tenancy management and tenant participation, then even better.

    It would also be beneficial if you held a current driving licence. You will also need to have a First Aid Certificate and Food Hygiene Certificate.

    However, if you do not possess these, full training will be provided to ensure you obtain these within the first few months.

    And because we take the wellbeing of our residents and staff very seriously, ideally you'll also be fully vaccinated against COVID-19.
