A local care home just outside Northallerton is looking for a Domestic Assistant to join the team.

The home cares for older people who need residential and dementia-related support in a luxury environment, with a range of cosy, memory-friendly private and entertainment areas, chef-prepared meals with fresh seasonal ingredients, and beautiful landscaped gardens to enjoy.

As a Domestic Assistant, you’ll be helping to keep the home clean, tidy, and in an overall pleasant state, such as through housekeeping, laundry, and catering-related duties. You’ll help create a warm atmosphere throughout the home and your work will be vital in giving residents the best possible home-living experience.

Previous domestics experience is desirable but not essential – it is more important to us that you’re up for pitching in where needed and can be a regular friendly face for the residents. Full training will be provided and you’ll have opportunities later on to earn qualifications and further develop your skills.

The home is part of one of the UK’s Top 20 Care Home Groups and as a member of the team, you’ll also be eligible to receive one of the sector’s best employee benefits packages for a fulfilling and rewarding career.

This is a permanent, full-time Domestic Assistant position (38.5h), either days or nights.

Please note that public transport in the area is limited — if commuting from outside Northallerton, you will need a car to reliably get to and from the home.
