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
  • Flexible hours
  • Quality training to develop your skills
  • Career progression
  • Bank holiday enhancements
  • Stakeholder pension
  • Childcare vouchers
  • Free uniform
  • Thousands of online and in-store discounts

About Care UK
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.
Where you'll work Our Knebworth care home is all about enjoying a superb lifestyle and quality care in beautiful surroundings.

Our experienced team provides permanent nursing and residential care, including care for people who are living with Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia.

We work closely with you and your loved one to understand their life history, skills and the people and places that are important to them. And, because we believe that life doesn't stop when a person moves into a care home, we also find out their wishes and aims for the future. Then we create care and lifestyle plans that reflect your loved ones needs, wishes and preferences, that enable them to live each day in the way they want.

At our Knebworth care home we're dedicated to enabling residents to enjoy rewarding activities and meaningful experiences every day. Some residents find meaning and purpose from helping out around the home, folding laundry, laying the tables for lunch, or helping out in the garden.

Our lifestyle coordinators also plan fun group and one-to-one activities tailored to residents' hobbies and interests. We also get out and about whenever we can, to the shops, a local pub for lunch, or a stately home. However, there's lots to keep us occupied in our beautiful home, including a pub and café, a cinema lounge and a hair and beauty salon

Care UK is committed to ensuring that it employs people with the right mix of talent, skills and potential and will assess every applicant fairly regardless of race, gender, religion, sexual orientation, responsibilities for dependents, age, physical/mental disability or offending background. Having a criminal record will not necessarily prevent you from working with us, it will depend on the nature of the role and background of any offence.
