Do you need flexibility in the days you work? Our bank roles (sometimes referred to as “relief roles” in other companies) mean that you will be able to choose from available shifts and have the benefits of a consistent workplace combined with opportunity to build positive relationships with the individuals we support. However you aren’t guaranteed shifts every week as hours are worked as and when required.

 

We are seeking an enthusiastic and committed Bank Chef to assist with meal preparation within our dining hall at Poplar House.  Set in a quiet, residential area of Basildon, Poplar House is a purpose-built development providing high-quality homes for the over 55’s, with a range of on-site services and facilities.

 

If you want to create restaurant style food without the restaurant style hours, this is a great opportunity to hone your skill set whilst helping to create innovative menus for our residents in a relaxed environment.

 

Strong interpersonal skills and a friendly open manner is essential for success in this role.
