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

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.

This is a full time role, working 37.5 hours per week across 5 out of 7 days with staggered shift patterns. Part time hours could be considered.
