You

You’re a hard-working individual with experience working in a busy kitchen. Ideally, you’ve already got some experience in a care home setting. You’re also a caring person who understands how important mealtimes are to older, vulnerable people. You’re a good team player who takes pride in your job and is happy to go the extra mile. You know the importance of food hygiene and health and safety rules. Above all, you want to be a valued member of a friendly team. You’re keen to progress in your catering career and do your bit to improve the nutrition of older people.





Your role

Reporting to the Head Chef, you’ll make sure all kitchen equipment and areas are properly cleaned. As part of our hard-working team, you’ll also help prepare tasty, nutritious meals that our residents and guests will enjoy. For example, you’ll take pressure off the chefs by cooking breakfast in the mornings. At main mealtimes, you’ll add those much-loved finishing touches like custard or gravy. You’ll be responsible for safe, hygienic food storage and for making sure kitchen equipment and cleaning materials are kept in their correct places. In return, we’ll give you lots of support, training and opportunities to progress in your career.

    Competitive pay – we pay more than the average
    Flexible hours, including a choice of day, night or weekend shifts
    Bank holiday enhancements
    Fast-track career options, e.g. to chef

    About Care UK

    We run over 120 homes and day clubs across the UK. We provide residential, nursing, dementia and end-of-life care for older people. As one of the UK’s leading care home providers, our goal is to help every employee fulfil his or her potential – with first-class training and support.

    At Oak House, we offer a warm welcome together with high quality care for older people.



    Set in a peaceful residential area of Slough, Oak House is a modern, purpose-built care home that opened in 2009. We provide personalised nursing, residential, and care to older people, including individuals with Alzheimer's and other types of dementia. We also offer sensitive and supportive end of life care.



    We place great importance on supporting residents to be as active and independent as possible. So we spend lots of time getting to know each person, so that we can offer engaging and fulfilling activities based on their interests. We love to see residents getting involved in our different clubs, keeping up with their old hobbies and trying out new things.



    Our friendly team also enjoys building good relationships with residents' loved ones, who often come to think of us as part of their extended family. Everyone shares the same goal of making sure residents are happy, comfortable and settled.
