Livability is a national Christian disability and community engagement charity that delivers a variety of community projects, disability care services and training resources across the UK. We also share our expertise internationally. Our vision is of a transformed society where disabled and disadvantaged people can live life to the full. That’s why, since 1844, we’ve been campaigning, training and pioneering projects - services to help improve the wellbeing and social inclusion of disabled adults and children.
Right now, we’re looking for a dedicated individual who’s happy to work as part of a rota system, to join us at New Court Place - Opened in 2000, New Court Place is home for up to 24 adults with disabilities.
Your Challenge? Help maintain the highest standards of cleanliness and hygiene. Day-to-day, you’ll undertake cleaning tasks and laundry duties according to work schedules and, if you spot any repairs or maintenance that’s needed to fabric, furniture or fittings, we’ll rely on you to report them.
You’ll also be responsible for ensuring an adequate stock of cleaning materials is maintained, safely stored, logged and risk assessed in line with health - safety requirements.
To succeed, you’ll need proven relevant experience, knowledge of Health - Safety requirements and a good understanding of how to operate domestic equipment. Experience of infection control practices and completing work schedules is important too, as is the ability to communicate clearly both verbally and in writing with people with a range of needs. Happy working on your own initiative, you're a good team player who is thoroughly reliable too. In return, we’ll give you plenty of support, a friendly working environment and a wide range of benefits.
If your cleaning/laundry service experience has been gained in a hospitality or registered care home environment, this challenging role as a Domestic Assistant could be your ideal next move.
