Housekeeper, Donaldson Lodge, Potters Bar, Hertfordshire

We are looking to recruit a part time Housekeeper in Potters Bar to assist the running of the house on a daily basis.

Located in the idyllic and historic town of Potters Bar, Donaldson Lodge is a supported house with 12 unfurnished en-suite bedrooms. We're in a great location, we have excellent transport links with a bus and train station within walking distance. 

Built in the 1950's, Donaldson Lodge used to belong to the Donaldson family and is conveniently situated in Potters Bar as you get the best of both worlds with stunning countryside on the one hand and the location being a stone's throw away from London.

Our main aim is to make it feel like a home from home for our residents and we have a dedicated, caring and professional team of staff who work together to provide a comfortable, friendly and warm environment. Our residents like to come together and often meet in the bright and airy conservatory most mornings to have tea and coffee and have a chat or take part in an activity with one of our volunteers.

You will report to Kerry Lee the Senior House Manager who will support and guide you through your induction.  On site will also be the General Assistant.

Our residents are provided with 2 cooked meals a day, a Hot Lunch and a light Dinner that will be prepared and cooked by you.  You will also be responsible to report any repairs to the Maintenance Team as well as carrying out Health and Safety Checks.  You will also be expected to deal with all the ordering of food and cleaning products therefore a good knowledge of admin and computer skills is essential.  Training in all areas of your role are provided.

The successful candidate will have an understanding of the needs of older people, experience of working with the public and an ability to work on own initiative. It is essential that you are a competent cook and a Food Hygiene Certificate qualification would be desirable. But above all, you care as much as we do and you’re passionate about making all the difference for older people.
