Domestic Assistant
Competitive Pay

You’re a caring, positive person. You’ve got experience as a cleaner or domestic assistant and ideally, you’ve already worked in a care home. You’ve got a good basic education. This should include GCSE English and Maths (or the equivalent). You also know about health and safety regulations. You’re a good team player – polite, presentable and mindful of older people’s privacy. When you join Care UK, you’ll get excellent support, quality training and fast-track career opportunities from one of the UK’s leading care home providers.

Your role
Residents are at the heart of everything we do. And the care home is their home. So your role in keeping it clean and tidy is vital. As part of a friendly team led by the Head Housekeeper, you’ll be responsible for carrying out all cleaning duties. You’ll make sure daily and deep cleaning tasks are carried out to a high standard, complying with infection control guidelines. It’s important that you respect the privacy and individual needs of the residents. You’ll also need to be comfortable doing some paperwork and re-stocking cleaning supplies as required. It’s a rewarding role and a supportive workplace where we all pull together.

As a Domestic Assistant at Care UK, you can look forward to:

  • Competitive pay – we pay more than the average
  • Flexible hours, including a choice of day, night or weekend shifts
  • 25 days’ annual leave
  • Bank holiday enhancements
  • Quality training to develop your skills
  • Fast-track career options
  • Stakeholder pension
  • Childcare vouchers
  • Free uniform
  • Thousands of online and in-store discounts

There will even be an in-house cinema and spacious balcony on the second floor. The team will have the skills and experience to deliver the very best in nursing, dementia, residential and short-term respite care.
