About The Role
*Please be advised this is a part time position, 20 hours per week*
HC-One, the kind care company is on the hunt for Britain’s kindest citizens to join its ‘caring army’. Whether you have been furloughed, lost your job due to coronavirus or are looking for a career change, join us to help support older people in your community.
As a Laundry Assistant at HC One, Kindness will be at the core of everything you do. It touches upon 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. And, by joining us, you’ll have a wonderful opportunity to give something back to those people.
For you, that will mean maintaining a high standard of order/tidiness within the laundry area. Keeping our residents’ clothing looking and feeling great, you will be responsible for washing, drying, ironing and repairing items as needed. You will maintain linen stocks for day to day use and raise any issues to the Senior Housekeeper as you go. Safe, comfortable and welcoming, the environment you maintain will be testament to your brilliant eye for detail. And, whether you’re folding/separating of linen/clothes ready to be returned to rooms or re-distribution of clothing to correct rooms, you’ll do so with a sense of kindness above anything else. You will take real pride in ensuring your work is always completed to the highest standard. You will enjoy creating and environment that’s well maintained, making sure our residents lives are longer, happier and healthier.
Become a Key worker and make difference.
We are committed to providing the quickest possible turnaround from the point of making you a job offer to you starting with us on day one.
We’re looking for someone with experience, ideally, although we’ll provide great training. You’ll also need excellent time management and organisational skills. Beyond that, it’s all about your brilliant, positive energy and natural ability to get along with people. So you’ll be a brilliant communicator who’s as skilled at listening as giving instruction. 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.
