Are you a dedicated Housekeeper looking for your next role? Could you thrive working in an environment supporting members of the amazing UK Fire and Rescue Service community? If so, read on.

About Us

The Firefighters Charity is the organisation that supports the mental, physical and social needs of the members of the UK Fire and Rescue Service community. We recognise that no two people requesting our support do so for the same reason and we tailor our service to achieve the best results for each of our beneficiaries.

When the rescuers need it the most, we recue them.

As part of our UK-wide range of support services, Harcombe House in the heart of Devon is a rural retreat offering accommodation and services to help our beneficiaries recover from a physically damaging or mentally traumatising experience. Thanks to funding gained from the LIBOR Awards in 2017, we are currently in the process of renovating the property and ensuring it meets the needs of more people for the foreseeable future.

Due to this renewal of the property, we are now seeking a number of Housekeepers to join our team in Chudleigh (just outside Newton Abbot and within easy reach of Exeter) and provide excellent Housekeeping services to our guests.

We have a variety of part time roles available working shifts covering 19.5, 15.4 or 10 hours per week.

The Benefits

- Salary of £8.50 per hour
- Benefits package
- A rewarding role helping the UK’s fire and rescue services

This is a superb opportunity to not only give back to members of our deserving fire and rescue services community, but to also gain valuable working experience with our incredible Charity.
