When you work for Care UK, you join UK’s leading care providers. Whatever the role, no two days will be the same and full training will be provided in a welcoming environment.
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.
Honeysuckle House is a welcoming care homeset in a leafy residential area of Palmers Green in north London.
Our friendly team provides specialist residential and nursing care for older people with Alzheimer's and other types of dementia. We offer personalised care and engaging activities based on residents' individual needs, interests and preferences. Our homely atmosphere helps everyone to feel settled and happy. Residents' comfort and health is our top priority and we treat each person with dignity and respect.
At Honeysuckle House, we value residents’ ideas and encourage everyone to take part in making decisions about the home. So when we redecorate, we find out what residents would like and we keep them up to date with progress. We also offer lots of support to residents' loved ones and we've got a wonderful network of families and friends who contribute to the daily life of the home, for example by helping to plant hanging baskets and containers to keep our garden looking fresh and bright.
