Are you a passionate Assistant Cook who thrives on making a real and positive difference to the lives of older people?
If so, Akari Care would love to hear from you! We are looking for a committed Cook to join our Kitchen Team.
At Akari Care, we provide residential and nursing care services to the elderly across the UK. Each care home is an extended family, bringing together residents and their loved ones, our colleagues in care, clinicians, hairdressers, commissioners and CQC regulators, members of the local community – the list goes on. We are focussed on creating a warm and inclusive environment in which our residents feel a sense of security and belonging, while at the same time retaining their dignity and self-respect.
We never compromise on the quality of our services and our extended team includes trusted GPs, Dentists, Chiropodists and Dieticians, who all work hard to improve our residents’ quality of life. Our dementia care homes have qualified, dedicated staff who help people to maintain the identity and dignity of our residents. With a focus on living life to the fullest, our homes offer activities such as hairdressing salons, bars, cinemas, gardening, and cooking courses to name just a few!
The food needs to be right for our residents and we take great pride in ensuring that what we prepare in our kitchens is of good quality, wholesome and nutritious. You will be a key link between the main kitchen and the serving of food to our residents.
This post will give you autonomy from creating menus, plating and arranging food trolleys. Being Cook you will oversee stock rotation, comply to company policies and procedures whilst following all mandatory COSHH and HACCP guidelines. You will also train, coach and manage the kitchen assistants to ensure the kitchen is ran to the highest standards.
At Akari Care, we are always keen to develop people and let them run with ideas. We celebrate birthdays along with all the other events in a year, so if you enjoy making cakes or being the BBQ master, we would love to hear from you.
