Could you help us make a difference to the life of an older or disabled person who live in one of our care homes? Derbyshire County Council is urgently looking for people to join our valued teams working with some of our vulnerable Derbyshire residents during these unprecedented circumstances.

As a relief catering assistant in one of our care homes or community care centres you will be working in a kitchen assisting with the preparation, cooking and service of the residents meals. Your role will include assisting the Catering Supervisor with the preparation of meals, preparing basic meals and cleaning duties within the kitchen.

If you’re looking for either a short or longer term rewarding role that offers good rates of pay, free uniform and high quality training, then please apply for this role. It’s your chance to make a difference to local people’s lives. The job may require unsocial hours working including weekends and Bank Holidays. Shifts may include mornings and afternoons. Payment arrangements will be detailed in any contract offer made.

Saturday and Sunday hours will be paid at plain time where it is part of your normal working pattern unless it is between 7pm and 7am, where enhanced rates of pay apply. Enhanced pay rates are paid for Bank Holiday working.

We will pay for a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check, as well as provide full Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) you may need.

Please help us support vulnerable people in your community at this time by considering this role.

Please note that if you already work in another health and social care setting (e.g another care home, home care provider or hospital ward) and intend to remain in that job, we will be unable to offer you a post with us at the moment. This is due to Public Health England guidance that advises care staff should not move between facilities due to the risk of transferring coronavirus.

Due to this post having access to children and/or vulnerable adults, the successful candidate will be required to undertake a Disclosure and Barring Service check. The possession of a criminal record will not necessarily prevent an applicant from obtaining this post, as all cases are judged individually according to the nature of the role and information provided.
