Head of Service

About The Role

In your role as Head of Service at HC-One, you’ll value one thing above all. Kindness. It carries across every aspect of our Dementia, Nursing, Residential and Specialist Care homes. Every single person who works here understands that our Residents are people just like them with their own stories to tell. By joining HC-One you’ll have a wonderful opportunity to give something back to those people.

About You

As Head of Service that will mean helping to prepare and serve nutritious, healthy meals that our residents will love. Assisting and preparing the cakes for the morning tea trolley and the lunch time dessert/cakes. You’ll demonstrate the highest standards in cleanliness, food safety and hygiene. And, whether you’re maintaining food supplies and fridge/freezer temperatures, showing new starters how to use the equipment or scrubbing that last bit of spilled food from inside the oven, you’ll always have resident well-being in mind above anything else.

HC-One are looking for someone with kitchen experience. You must be aware of The Food Safety Act 1990, The Health and Safety at Work Act 1974, RIDDOR and COSHH regulations. Great record keeping and organisational skills will be essential, as will the ability to follow recipes. And, whenever you communicate with a Resident or co-worker, you’ll be truly considerate and kind.

Well, after all, it’s just in your nature.

 

About The Company

We’ll provide full training, so it’s a great opportunity to learn something new. In return, you will enjoy access to a huge variety of benefits and services to support your physical and psychological well-being and throughout your career as Head of Service we will invest in you and you will enjoy additional support and benefits including:

  • Paid Enhanced DBS/PVG
  • Hourly pay is subject to experience

  • GP online - a service providing around the clock GP consultation via an interactive app - available to you and your children under 16
  • An opportunity to learn from experienced colleagues as part of an outstanding and committed team.
  • Colleague discounts – Access to over 1600 high street discounts including carefully selected discount partners.

  • Excellent recognition schemes such as ‘Kindness in Care’ and Long Service Awards
