Kitchen Porter

East Grinstead

Joining one of key teams within The McIndoe Centre, we are on the lookout for a motivated and team-orientated Kitchen Porter. Playing an integral role within the catering team, you will be on hand to ensure that the catering area remains clean and hygienic for the wider team, as well assisting with the delivery of staff meals throughout the hospital.

Responsibilities will include washing pots and pans, keeping floors clean, sanitizing food preparation areas and occasionally helping with food prep work. You will be invaluable in making sure our catering areas remain sanitised and tidy.

This is a permanent position (37.5 hours per week) based on a rota pattern, which will include weekend work. Shift times are from 7am to 3pm.

About you:

  • Fantastic attention to detail and cleanliness
  • Basic knowledge of food safety and hygiene practices is desirable, but not essential
  • Prior experience within a kitchen / catering environment
  • A team player, with enthusiasm to support in other areas of the catering department as and when required.
  • A working ethic aligned to our core values as a group: Caring, Friendly, Quality, Integrity and Pride.


In accordance with Home Office guidance successful candidates will be required to evidence their right to work in the UK before commencement of employment. We have assessed this role and do not consider that we would be able to sponsor a successful candidate under the Skilled Worker route as the role does not meet the relevant Home Office criteria; the successful candidate therefore must be able to demonstrate their own right to work during the recruitment process without Horder Healthcare sponsorship.

At Horder Healthcare, we are proud to champion and celebrate diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging in all areas of our business. We are committed to creating an environment of mutual respect where equal employment opportunities are available to all applicants without regard to protected characteristics by applicable law.

As a disability confident employer, we are pleased to offer our full support should you require an alternative method of applying or any reasonable adjustments to be made during the recruitment process. 

In order to streamline our recruitment process, we reserve the right to expire vacancies prior to the advertised closing date once we have received a sufficient number of applications.

Due to the nature of work here at Horder Healthcare, and to ensure that we remain committed to our Safeguarding policy, all successful applicants will be subject to pre-employment checks, including an Enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS check). References and Occupational Health checks will also be taken up before appointment.
