A General Assistant’s role consists of cleaning the communal areas of the house, assisting the Housekeeper with meal service and supporting the residents whilst working as part of a small team. Duty sheets will be provided and GA’s are expected to complete the tasks allocated and sign them off. GA’s may also be asked to assist with event planning, resident outings and other special occasions. They must have the ability to communicate well with others, show an understanding of others needs and be willing to travel for training as required. Shift patterns will include working every other weekend.
We are a charity organisation who provide high quality housing for over 55’s. We pride ourselves on offering a service which assists in alleviating loneliness and providing two freshly cooked meals a day for our residents. We engage with our residents and encourage interaction through activities and outings.
We all share the same values of being caring, honest, open and respectful, putting the needs of our residents first.
I like to ensure that staff have the support and trained needed to carry out their role to a high standard. When recruiting new staff members I look for people who are caring, respectful and eager to learn as well as thrive and shine within their working environment and also show a high level of commitment to the job. If you are successful you will join a small team who all support each other and share our values. You will receive a full induction carried out by a competent member of staff and have regular 121’s with me. Once your induction is complete we will focus on developing your knowledge and skills further, offering additional support, guidance and training to allow you to develop to the best of your ability within the team.
