Hailsham, East Sussex
Creating spotless, hospitable and comfortable care homes where residents love to live is vital to what we do at Care UK.
Care UK is one of the UK’s leading providers of health and social care services. As our Head Housekeeper you’ll be central to making our home a palace for residents, their guests and visitors alike.
You’ll lead and supervise the hostess, housekeeping and laundry teams to ensure the home meets the highest standards of hospitality and cleanliness at all times. Daily tasks might include updating the team rota to ensure we’re fully staffed, liaising with residents about the best times to clean their rooms. Above all, you’ll ensure residents and their guests don’t want for anything and that everything runs smoothly 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Are you an experienced head housekeeper - you could be from any sector – and keen to take on a role with more meaning? Are you a great supervisor with a positive ‘can do’ attitude and superb people skills? Do you have a warm personality and great sense of humour that makes you popular with everyone? If so, we’ll treat you to flexible hours and a competitive rate of pay that will add sparkle to your career.

I have 20 years of experience in health and social care, starting with six years of operational management in the NHS. After that, I had the opportunity to work for a provider of dialysis services, and I went from managing one brand new clinic to managing 10 clinics as a Regional Director across London. After six years in this sector, I had the opportunity to work in older people’s services.
After completing my last project, I wanted to work within an organisation that puts the wellbeing of its teams and the care and support of residents at the heart of everything they do.
A good leader supports the team to deliver on the promise we make to care for people’s loved ones. The role requires energy and tenacity, and you must be approachable and lead with a smile and integrity.
Delivering great care and keeping my team happy and motivated is my priority. I’m proud when I see team members develop in their careers and see the great outcomes for people we support at Bowes House.
I live by the coast, so outside of work walking and swimming are a must! I love to watch movies, cook, go camping and socialise too.Jonathan Johnson Home Manager
