About you

Are you a friendly and approachable person? Do you have a passion for food and impeccable standards? If this sounds like you, and you’re seeking a rewarding job role, we are currently recruiting for a Cook to join our Adult Residential Services team, working within one of our residential homes in Sunderland.

As part of our catering team, you will provide a high-quality food provision service, ensuring that the autistic and neurodivergent residents have access to a healthy and balanced diet, which accounts for their individual dietary requirements

Whilst we value catering experience, it is not essential for candidates to have previously worked in the health and social care sector, or with autistic individuals – all we ask is that you are hard-working, willing to learn and committed to helping those we support to live as safely and independently as possible, in a nurturing home environment.
