You

You’re a caring, can-do person with experience working in building maintenance. Ideally, some of that has been gained in a care home setting. You’ve got a good basic education with GCSEs (or the equivalent) including English and Maths. As well as being very practical, you like dealing with people. You’re happy building good relationships with residents, colleagues and contractors. You’re a multi-tasker who can work well under pressure and use your initiative to solve problems. Above all, you’re a team player who takes pride in your work and is committed to maintaining a safe, comfortable environment for our residents.


Your role

The safety of our care home residents and staff is really important. So your role will be to make sure the premises and grounds are maintained to a high standard. You’ll perform regular checks, carry out repairs and, when needed, contact engineers or service agents. You’ll be confident doing fire, basic electrical and appliance checks. Faults must be reported and actioned promptly. We’ll also expect you to keep the grounds looking tidy and carry out general redecoration work. As our Maintenance Person, you’ll be a valuable member of our friendly, close-knit team, promoting the well-being of our residents and the successful running of our care home.

As Maintenance Person at Care UK, you can look forward to:

  • Competitive pay – we pay more than the average

Trusted to care

A closely-knit team of managers, carers, nurses and support colleagues – and each of us is dedicated to your loved one’s care, health and wellbeing.

I have 20 years of experience in health and social care, starting with six years of operational management in the NHS. After that, I had the opportunity to work for a provider of dialysis services, and I went from managing one brand new clinic to managing 10 clinics as a Regional Director across London. After six years in this sector, I had the opportunity to work in older people’s services.

After completing my last project, I wanted to work within an organisation that puts the wellbeing of its teams and the care and support of residents at the heart of everything they do.

A good leader supports the team to deliver on the promise we make to care for people’s loved ones. The role requires energy and tenacity, and you must be approachable and lead with a smile and integrity.

Delivering great care and keeping my team happy and motivated is my priority. I’m proud when I see team members develop in their careers and see the great outcomes for people we support at Bowes House.

I live by the coast, so outside of work walking and swimming are a must! I love to watch movies, cook, go camping and socialise too.
