Part Time

Closing Date: 01/10/21

Job Ref: DPSS601
Salary: £9.37 p/h
Seeking a Personal Cook, in NR2

Covid Safety:

As I’m a vulnerable person, you are part of keeping me safe from the pandemic. Therefore, you will still be taking precautions in your daily life, to avoid contracting and passing on the virus. If you feel you’re too exposed to this in your daily life, it will be impossible to keep both of us safe.

The Position:

This would suit someone who has a genuine passion for food and cooking from scratch. You will be preparing a range of healthy dishes, smoothies and snacks, with particular dietary needs in mind. You’ll mostly be given instructions as to what to create, but I’m open to new ideas and trying different dishes, that may cater to my needs better.

You’ll be creating and serving fresh meals and batch cooking, for me to reheat later. Food safety and hygiene is an absolute must, keeping an inventory and updating me when items are running low and need to be added to the list. You’ll also be responsible for cleaning the kitchen, maintaining appliances and doing a deep clean on occasions, including the fridge/freezers.

You’ll also value supporting someone in their home, to enjoy great nutrition and have meals set-up ready, for when I’m surviving alone.

The Hours 4.5hrs p/w









Some flexibility is required at times for changing life needs. You’ll be required to cover sickness, holidays and staff shortages, where possible.

£9.37p/h, holiday pay, beverages and biscuits!

Would most likely suit someone in the local area of NR2.
