Our Housekeepers are vital to our care services. You will be in direct contact with our patients and families, making their environment clean and homely.   You will be responsible for the hands-on cleaning of patient and family rooms, as well as our care and administration areas and for moving furniture when necessary whilst cleaning.   We have very strict guidelines around controlling infections and so there is much responsibility attached to this role.

Havens Hospices cares for adults and children diagnosed with serious, life-limiting illnesses. We aim to make their journey – and that of their families – as comfortable as possible, creating special memories along the way. Our care is free of charge but that can only continue happening thanks to our special team. Our patients and families are grateful for the specialist and free care they receive at Havens Hospices but they also expect high standards. After all, they’re turning to us at their time of greatest need.   By making the most of every day you work, you will be helping us to Make Every Day Count for those who need us most.

The ideal candidate will have previous cleaning experience ideally within a care environment and be looking for an opportunity to make a real difference.
