Blind Veterans UK – Housekeeper


Rustington BN16, UK

Most of us grow up with 5 senses and can’t imagine what it’s like to lose any one of those.

For some ex-service people, this is their reality. Suddenly their whole way of life is changed, even walking to the shops becomes a huge task.

Fortunately, Blind Veterans are here to help rebuild their lives. But they can’t do it alone.

This is where you come in.

You’ll take on a daily cleaning routine, getting involved in deep cleaning tasks in all rooms and public areas within the centre. You’ll manage laundry, clean and set up function rooms and dispose of waste and recycling. You’ll need to understand COSHH, infection control and manual handling practices.

You’ll have a shared responsibility with your colleagues to ensure the Centre of Wellbeing remains safe, secure and clean. You’ll also need to keep up with some paperwork to help everyone stay on the same page.

It will be an added bonus if you have any emergency first aid skills.
