Are you a highly motivated person who enjoys cooking and would you like to be part of a kitchen team that offers healthy and balanced meals to guests in a Learning Disability service? Do you enjoy creating menus and adapting meals to suit guests' dietary requirements?
In part of this role you will be required to follow Summer and Winter menus and adhere to cleaning regimes to an excellent standard to maintain our 5 Star food hygiene rating.

Grangemead is a countywide respite and emergency service for adults with Learning Disabilities in Hailsham, which was refurbished to a high standard offering a hotel style service. All 12 bedrooms have ensuite facilities. We have interactive sensory equipment and the latest in assistive technology to enhance the experience of clients staying with us.
The service provides a fun holiday experience for long and short respite stays where we promote life skills, independence, community presence and opportunities to meet new friends.
The emergency service provides accommodation to individuals who are experiencing a difficult time in their lives e.g. safeguarding, homelessness, illness, death or end of placement with carers.
Coronavirus has been a key learning experience for all services. Cooks would need to have a positive and flexible attitude to working in Adult Social Care. All staff would be required to work across Learning Disability Services when required.
