Hours: 24 hours per week
Pay: £10 per hour
Sairam Villa is a very special place, a state-of-the-art, purpose-built care home in Harrow. Focusing mainly, but not exclusively, on the Asian community, our residents require nursing care, suffer from mental health issues such as dementia, or need end-of-life care. The home has strong links with the local community and is a vegetarian home, catering from the morning cup of chai, to the daal and roti in the evening.
To keep our friendly home a happy and bright place to be, we are seeking a cook to work Saturdays, Sundays and one other day during the week. We need warm-hearted, enthusiastic and committed individuals to help us deliver the type of caring and stimulating environment you’d want your own relatives to have.
When you join us as a cook, you’ll play a crucial role in the success of our lovely care home. You will be making sure the home is a nice place for our residents to be.
With experience of vegetarian cooking, you will already hold a minimum Level 2 Food Hygiene Certificate and understand the importance of nutritious, varied and well-balanced meals, for our residents’ physical and mental well-being.
You will be reliable with good communication and time management skills, to help our home run smoothly. You will assist in ensuring a quality food service is provided by managing kitchen stocks and maintaining a clean and safe work environment to comply with Health and Safety and Food Hygiene regulations.
Successful applicants are required to provide an enhanced DBS disclosure. All appointments are subject to safer recruitment requirements to ensure the safeguarding of adults. All positions will involve appropriate checks and clearances.
