SSAFA – Part-time Housekeeper 

***THIS JOB VACANCY HAS NOW CLOSED***

£17, 422.28 per annum pro-rata 

20 Hours

Norton House Stanford Hall (NHSH), Stanford on Soar 

A fantastic opportunity has arisen for a part-time Housekeeper to join the Norton House staff team at SSAFA, the Armed Forces charity.

SSAFA, the Armed Forces charity, has been providing practical, emotional, and financial support to our Forces and their families since 1885. Last year our teams of volunteers and employees helped more than 79,000 people in need, from Second World War veterans to those who have served in more recent conflicts or are still currently serving, and their families.

SSAFA understands that behind every uniform is a person. We are here for that person – any time they need us, in any way they need us, for as long as they need us.

About the role

Norton House Stanford Hall is a large 8-bedroom home for families visiting injured servicemen and women undergoing rehabilitation at the Defence Medical Rehabilitation Centre (DMRC) Stanford Hall, near Loughborough. The home operates 24/7 and is open 365 days of the year.

The residents are the next of kin or main support network of their loved one receiving treatment at the Defence Medical Rehabilitation Centre. The staff members work individually and as part of a team to provide the necessary support to the families in residence.

Norton House is in the same village as the DMRC but not on the same site.  The house is served by the No1 Bus route.

It may be possible to arrange working hours around existing caring responsibilities.

About the team 

The team is made up of the Housing Manager, a Deputy Housing Manager, a Family Support Worker and 2 part-time Housekeepers.  It is a very close-knit team that works well together and provides a great service for our guests.  Everyone is involved in helping to make Norton House the best it can be. 

About you

The Housekeepers ensure that Norton House is kept in good order providing a clean and hygienic environment for patients and their families.

To carry out this role successfully you will have previous experience of housekeeping or cleaning and have knowledge of safe working practices. Having a First Aid qualification is a bonus, or you will need to undertake training.  As part of a small team, you will need to be flexible, including occasional out of hours working.  DBS clearance is necessary, and this will be paid for by SSAFA.

SSAFA is an employer that values the diversity of its workforce and welcomes applications from all sections of the community. 

No agencies please. Any unsolicited submissions from agencies will be accepted as a direct application from the candidate and no fees will be payable.
