You have catering and cleaning experience, certificates in basic/advanced cooking, Food Hygiene and Health & Safety, plus knowledge of food standards and FSA requirements. All you need is the perfect environment to put your skills to great use. Welcome to Richmond Fellowship as a Housekeeper.
Right now, our registered care home at Meridan House in Colindale needs a Housekeeper to join them. They encourage and support people aged over 18 with complex mental health problems to re-learn or develop independent living skills, whilst supporting and challenging them to develop their own aspirations. But, they need your help. Your challenge? To provide, manage and develop a high quality catering and cleaning service for our residents. Having quickly made yourself familiar with the planned menu, you’ll prepare and cook nutritional set dishes and other requested meals, including catering for vegetarian/vegan and other dietary requirements.
Discussing meal arrangements and encouraging feedback will be important too, as will ensuring a high standard of cleanliness within the kitchen. And, when it comes to cleaning, vacuuming and dusting the other areas of the care home and replenishing soaps, hand towels, bin liners and toilet rolls, again, we'll count on you.
To succeed, you’ll need an understanding of the difficulties faced by people with mental ill health problem, a kind, caring nature and sensitivity to the needs of our residents. Previous experience of cleaning work is essential, as is the ability to maintain stock records of cleaning materials and complete relevant reports and legal records. Comfortable working with minimal supervision, you're well-organised and great at communicating with people at all levels and from a range of backgrounds.
