You’re a caring, positive person. You’ve got experience as a cleaner or domestic assistant and ideally, you’ve already worked in a care home. You’ve got a good basic education. This should include GCSE English and Maths (or the equivalent). You also know about health and safety regulations. You’re a good team player – polite, presentable and mindful of older people’s privacy. When you join Care UK, you’ll get excellent support, quality training and fast-track career opportunities from one of the UK’s leading care home providers.
Residents are at the heart of everything we do. And the care home is their home. So your role in keeping it clean and tidy is vital. As part of a friendly team led by the Head Housekeeper, you’ll be responsible for carrying out all cleaning duties. You’ll make sure daily and deep cleaning tasks are carried out to a high standard, complying with infection control guidelines. It’s important that you respect the privacy and individual needs of the residents. You’ll also need to be comfortable doing some paperwork and re-stocking cleaning supplies as required. It’s a rewarding role and a supportive workplace where we all pull together.
As a Domestic Assistant at Care UK, you can look forward to:
- Competitive pay – we pay more than the average
- Flexible hours, including a choice of day, night or weekend shifts
- Bank holiday enhancements
- Quality training to develop your skills

We run over 120 homes and day clubs across the UK. We provide residential, nursing, dementia and end-of-life care for older people. As one of the UK’s leading care home providers, our goal is to help every employee fulfil his or her potential – with first-class training and support.
Jubilee House is a welcoming care home located just off Godalming High Street in Surrey.
We provide personalised residential, nursing and respite care for older people, and our team has specialist expertise in supporting individuals who have Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia.
When a new resident joins us, we find out as much as we can about their lifetime experiences, interests, likes and dislikes. We use what we learn to create individual ‘life history boxes’, which help to trigger memories and provide comfort for residents who have dementia.
Everyone in the Jubilee House team is very open and approachable. We all share the aim of helping residents to stay as independent as possible and we offer choices at all times. Many residents play an important part in the day-to-day life of the home, for example by helping out with housework, maintaining the garden or by looking after our pets.
