Current opportunities

The Committee oversees the day to day running of the house by the 6 members of staff that are employed in catering or cleaning. We are looking for someone who will enjoy dealing with any aspects of ensuring this can be carried out in a caring and safe way. Each member of the Committee brings different life skills such as social care, technology, catering. maintenance, training and general business experience. Working together we ensure that tenants are happy with their accommodation and meals we are providing. We make initial visits to tenants in their own homes and assess their suitability and if financial assistant is needed, we can assist with their application for local authority Housing Benefit. We invite them along with a family member or friend to see round the house and stay for lunch to get a feel for the house. We also complete biannual support plans for each tenant which is a requirement of the Care Inspectorate. Pre:Covid, various entertainment evenings were organised which we would hope to restart once we are allowed.
