Passionate about the power of good food? So are our catering teams right around the UK

Join our team and you'll have the chance to get creative in the kitchen while cooking up nutritious, well-balanced meals that have a direct impact on residents’ health and wellbeing.  

Many catering colleagues join us from restaurants or hotels where they’re used to working long hours late into the night. In a care home, you’ll work more sociable hours, and you’ll also have the opportunity to build relationships by getting to know residents and their tastes and preferences. This is a role where you can really make a difference. 

Looking to progress in your career? Our Chef Academy is designed to support individuals in our hospitality teams to become the future kitchen chefs and leaders within Care UK.


In a catering role at Care UK, you'll be...

  • Building trust with residents and their families 
  • Collaborating with others in the kitchen and beyond 
  • Raising the home’s standards through culinary development 
  • Consulting with residents to ensure their needs and choices are met
