Working for the Trust

Freda Gunton Lodge


Khalid and Daniel work as Kitchen Assistants in Freda Gunton Lodge and said their first impressions of the Home were how welcoming and friendly the staff and residents were and being impressed with our up to date kitchen equipment. They both feel like they are working with family and thoroughly enjoy coming to work.

The pandemic has been particularly challenging for both of them as they are currently studying their level 2, Food Production course at Colchester Institute. Unfortunately, due to COVID restrictions, they have not been able to attend college to complete their course but have received excellent support from their senior colleagues, therefore, being able to complete their courses and be signed off by their tutor.

“The opportunities are endless, you work with a good team and are encouraged to develop yourself further” – Daniel

“It is like working with your family everyone is kind and friendly. The manager of the home encourages you to develop yourself” – Khalid
