Job Details

Are you looking for a role that fits in with daily life?
Do you have children at School?
Or maybe you require 16-20 Hours during the week?

If any of these apply, please read on!

We have a great opportunity to join a small residential home as a General Assistant. The home itself houses 10 residents, all of whom live in their own private rooms and are fully capable of looking after themselves. This home is a supported living house where the residents can eat together, socialise or simply sit in the sun in the lovely gardens. Its a friendly environment which operates as a large 'house'. The residents have their own personal carers if needed, but most enjoy the fact they now live in a home of like minded individuals where there is always someone around to have a chat.

They require a General Assistant to become part of the family and assist with general duties within the home.

Your day will compromise of:

  • Cleaning general areas - Dining Room, Living Room and Kitchen
  • Socialise with residents, be a friendly face, and spot check on those residents who are in their own rooms - please note you WILL NOT be responsible for any personal care or manual handling.
  • Lay the table at lunch times and help clear tables after meals
  • Serve tea & coffee
  • Small amount of Laundry - putting the washer on etc.
  • Get involved in any activities as required

We are looking for an individual with a caring nature, someone who is open to working in a small supported housing environment who understands that just being friendly can mean the world to these residents. We are not looking for any kind of experience, your personality and work ethic is what counts here.

If you have cleaned your own home, you can talk to people and are looking for part time working hours to fit around school hours, then this job is for you!

Working Hours: 16-20 hours between 10am - 2pm Monday to Friday.

Pay: Staring at £9.50p/h with reviews

Benefits: Onsite parking and on a bus route, good holiday and pension scheme, full training provided and the opportunity to progress in a variety of areas if desired.
