Queenscourt Hospice, a local charity providing specialist and supportive palliative care services for people of Southport, Formby and West Lancashire.  Our philosophy of care is ‘life is for living’ and that quality of life is paramount for those whose life may be shorter than otherwise expected.

An opportunity has arisen for an experienced, professional Cook to join our Catering Team. The emphasis at Queenscourt is on ‘nourishing the whole person’.

Ideally you will have previous experience of preparing, cooking and serving nutritional meals of a high standard to patients and staff. The ability to speak with patients about their individual requirements and working with the Clinical teams to ensure that patient’s nutritional requirements are provided for is essential.

Bank positions also available

With experience of working within a catering team, you will be working alongside our Cooks mainly covering for periods of holiday and sickness and will involve both weekday and weekend working.  There are no minimum weekly hours, but we are also looking to recruit Cooks who can be called on, sometimes at short notice, to help maintain our high quality catering service.

Full induction and training will be given for both positions.
