Would you like to make a difference to the quality of living for our residents?

Are you a great cook with lots of hands-on kitchen experience?

If the answer is yes than we would love to hear from you.

 At Abbeyfield we pride ourselves on the quality of our food and we need an experienced cook to provide two fresh, home-cooked and nutritionally balanced meals each day for 35 elderly residents.

We are looking for an organised and pro-active person to provide day to day management of the kitchen, ensuring an efficient handover process is in place and adopted by all staff.
You will be responsible for ordering catering supplies making sure fresh, delicious and nutritionally balanced meals are produced every day of the week.  You will also be responsible for recording petty cash and keeping all records up to date and accurate at all times.

The successful candidate will have an understanding of the needs of older people, experience of working with the public and the ability to work on their own initiative.

 It is essential that you are a competent cook (a Food Hygiene Certificate qualification is desirable) but above all, that you care about older people as much as we do and are committed to making a positive difference to their lives.

Closing date for applications: 21 February 2018. This post is subject to a DBS check.
