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.
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:
We run over 120 homes and day clubs across the UK. We provide residential, nursing, dementia and end-of-life care for older people. As one of the UK’s leading care home providers, our goal is to help every employee fulfil his or her potential – with first-class training and support.
Hinton Grange is a homely and very friendly purpose-built care home set in a quiet residential area of Cambridge.
We provide specialist residential, nursing and respite care for older people, including individuals living with Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia.
We go out of our way to make residents happy and to give them fulfilling experiences every day. We get to know each resident as well as we do the members of our own family. It’s the only way to deliver personalised care that fits their needs, goals and preferences – and that makes them feel special.
Everything from the care we provide to the activities we organise and the food we serve is tailored to residents. We listen to their feedback, and that of their families, and we change and improve every aspect of home life.
