The NHS is changing. More emphasis on community-based care means there’s never been a better time to join us.

The CQC has rated us ‘outstanding’ and says that our colleagues feel supported, valued and respected, with high levels of staff and patient satisfaction.

Our vision is to deliver excellent local services which improve the health of our communities. To do this we need outstanding people who share our values (CARE). CARE stands for:

  • Compassionate
  • Aspirational
  • Responsive
  • Excellent

Could you help deliver the biggest immunisation programme that Kent has ever seen?

As a Pharmacy Manager you’ll be leading a dedicated and professional team preparing covid-19 vaccinations in our large-scale vaccination centres. You’ll be responsible for the clinical oversight of our vaccine preparation, heading up a team working to safely store, dilute and draw up vaccine and deliver it safely and effectively to our on-site vaccinators to make sure everyone gets the protection they need against COVID-19.

You’ll need to work as flexibly as possible, including evenings and weekends. You’ll also need to be adaptable and responsive as our temporary centres include an ex- department store, a sports centre and even an empty theatre. But you’ll be ready to hit the ground running and play your part in our vaccination success, providing specialist clinical advice and direction, following protocols, overseeing and supporting staff to prepare the vaccine, and identifying any clinical concerns.

It's an ambitious programme. We have a mountain to climb. But if we work together now we can get back to a normal way of life much sooner. And that’s good for all of us.

Cook

Abbeyfield

Tunbridge Wells, HC

Tunbridge Wells, HC
17 days ago

Your mission is to provide a healthy, nutritious, varied and reliable meals service to our elderly residents. 

 

Job Description

At Abbeyfield, we believe that great care starts with great people. We’re committed to providing the highest standards of accommodation to our residents and we’re always keen to hear from people who share our commitment to enhancing the lives of older people in the UK.

In return for your commitment, we offer a great pay and benefits package.  This includes 31 days paid leave, (pro rata), including bank/public holidays, an occupational sick pay scheme, a pension scheme, plus shop and save discounts.  We also offer great career prospects, from a comprehensive induction and a ‘buddy’ to get you started, to further opportunities to progress your career as a cook, through development, to gain more experience in your role.  And there may be opportunities in some of our Homes to develop into Sous Chefs/Second Chefs, all the way up to a Head Chef/Catering Manager role.

Best of all, we’re a charity, meaning that the interests of our valued staff and residents sit at the heart of what we do, not shareholders.

Description of the role

It starts with developing, in consultation with residents and staff, healthy balanced menus, with choices which reflect the needs and preferences of residents.  You’ll therefore plan, prepare and cook residents’ meals from the agreed menu, taking into account personal preferences or recognised dietary requirement (e.g. diabetes). All residents are to be offered at least three meals per day.  And by regularly seeking feedback, you’ll monitor their satisfaction with the menu and quality of the food provided. 

You’ll also ensure a safe and sufficient supply of catering products, by developing a system of ordering supplies in a timely manner.  And to ensure good stock control, you’ll make sure catering orders and deliveries are recorded using documentation supplied, to enable all orders to be checked and audited.   Maintenance of a system of effective stock rotation and control is paramount, and by doing so, you will manage catering costs within the agreed catering budget.

You will also ensure safe and proper use of catering equipment, and report any defects to management. It is also important that you adhere to kitchen cleaning procedures and schedules in accordance with Environmental Health standards, and keep the kitchen and store areas in a clean and hygienic condition.  Correct use of all equipment and products in line with COSHH requirements is key, as is the need to keep all COSHH assessments under review.  You will also participate in and supervise the completion of all relevant records in relation to food safety.

Our Ideal Candidate

You’ll have a relevant Certificate in Food Hygiene, or be prepared to obtain one within the first three months in the role.  Equally, you will have demonstrable experience of cooking varied, healthy and safe meals to large groups (twelve or more, and sometimes up to 20), on a regular basis.

You’ll also have the ability to communicate and interact well with people, and work productively as part of a team.  And in a modern working environment, naturally you need to be able to read and write to a good standard.

You’ll be methodical and highly organised; your kitchen and equipment will be kept clean and tidy, with an effective method of stock rotation.

Finally, you should be able to demonstrate an empathy and understanding of the nutritional needs of older people.

About the House or Home you’ll be working in

Located in a quiet residential area of Tunbridge Wells , Hale Court’s high quality Independent Living retirement apartments offer a home from home providing comfort, space and privacy, with staff on duty 24 hours a day to deal with emergencies.

We have 19 apartments of which 14 with one-bedroom are rental. All apartments have private entrances, a fully fitted kitchen with generous storage and a wet room which allow you to live as independently as you wish. We provide a two course meal daily for all residents.

HERITAGE

Alsford Timberstarted out as a family-owned business in 1882 selling firewood in North London. Demand for quality timber grew, and by 1891 we had developed into a fully-fledged timber merchant with 6 yards on the outskirts of London. With the expansion of our company and the services we offered came an increase in business, and most importantly, valued customers.

GROWTH

The business grew over the next 100 years, with new branches opening up across the South-East of England. As our estate grew, so did our product offering, which extended to reflect our customer needs. Despite the vast changes in our size, locations and product offering, we have always retained our superior market knowledge, timber expertise and customer service excellence that everyone who deals with Alsford has come to expect - and still associates with us today.

With 19 branches across the South-East, our plans to expand further continue each year. Regardless of how many branches we have, the one constant we will always have is the quality of our staff.

Beaver Lane is a detached building situated not far from the town centre and close to amenities. It's a spacious house, specially designed for individuals with complex needs. The house has a lovely size garden to the rear where we have our lovely chickens, which is a great attraction for the people we support to use the garden.

We support 6 individuals at Beaver lane. Three have their own flats within the service, due to their complex needs. We support individuals who can become anxious and display behaviours that may challenge others.

Staff are supported by a good core team of staff who have built up good working relationships with the individuals we support and are welcoming of new staff to join our team.

The service likes to make use of the garden area, which has been great this year with the added restrictions placed on everyone.

Department:
Pharmacy

Various - Kent wide, Various - Kent wide
Salary:
£23.40 +12.07% WTD per hour

The NHS is changing. More emphasis on community-based care means there’s never been a better time to join us.

The CQC has rated us ‘outstanding’ and says that our colleagues feel supported, valued and respected, with high levels of staff and patient satisfaction.

Our vision is to deliver excellent local services which improve the health of our communities. To do this we need outstanding people who share our values (CARE). CARE stands for:

  • Compassionate
  • Aspirational
  • Responsive
  • Excellent

Could you help deliver the biggest immunisation programme that Kent has ever seen?

As a Pharmacy Manager you’ll be leading a dedicated and professional team preparing covid-19 vaccinations in our large-scale vaccination centres. You’ll be responsible for the clinical oversight of our vaccine preparation, heading up a team working to safely store, dilute and draw up vaccine and deliver it safely and effectively to our on-site vaccinators to make sure everyone gets the protection they need against COVID-19.

You’ll need to work as flexibly as possible, including evenings and weekends. You’ll also need to be adaptable and responsive as our temporary centres include an ex- department store, a sports centre and even an empty theatre. But you’ll be ready to hit the ground running and play your part in our vaccination success, providing specialist clinical advice and direction, following protocols, overseeing and supporting staff to prepare the vaccine, and identifying any clinical concerns.

It's an ambitious programme. We have a mountain to climb. But if we work together now we can get back to a normal way of life much sooner. And that’s good for all of us.
