Creative Support is a national, fast-growing not-for-profit organisation providing support to individuals with a wide range of care needs. We are currently seeking a highly organised and meticulous Laundry Assistant to work part time at our service in Stanwix, Carlisle.
You will provide a high standard of tidiness within the laundry area of our Extra Care Service in Carlisle. This is a service of 44 self-contained flats.
To keep our residents' clothing looking and feeling great, you will be responsible for washing, drying and ironing as required. You will also give service users' flats a 30-minute clean once per week. Through your brilliant eye for detail and sense of pride in your work, you will ensure the laundry room is clean, tidy and welcoming, and report any faults to the onsite housing team. When you're folding/separating linen/clothes and returning them to the correct rooms, you will do so with kindness, above all else. You will take real pride in ensuring your work is always completed to the highest standard, and ensure our residents clothing and bedding is well maintained. Not all residents in the Extra Care scheme have their laundry done by Creative Support, so residents have access to the laundry area after 1:30pm.
You'll need excellent time management and organisational skills. Beyond that, it's all about your positive energy and natural ability to get along with people. So you'll be a positive communicator with both residents and co-workers. We are looking for someone who is both considerate and kind.
Whether you have experience in working as a Domestic Assistant, Laundry Assistant or Housekeeper, or if you are new to this field but know that you have 'what it takes' to make a difference to our residents, then we want to hear from you.
Benefits of working with Creative Support:
- Free 24/7 counselling and employee support programme,
- Competitive pay and a pension with company contribution and 28 days annual leave,
- Company paid enhanced DBS for all staff.
