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:
- 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

Welcome to our beautiful East Sussex care home, close to Crowborough town centre and the stunning South Downs.
Heather View is a purpose-built, modern care home, with a dedicated and experienced team providing the best in residential, nursing, dementia and respite care for older people.
We help each resident, whatever their needs, to lead an active, independent and fulfilling life. Our care teams are experts in caring for older people with all kinds of needs, and enjoy working with families to get to understand each resident very well. Once we know residents’ life stories, interests, likes and dislikes we create a care plan for them that’s entirely personalised to their needs, interests and abilities.
Our ability to provide a full range of care services enables us to adapt to a resident’s changing care needs so that they can continue to enjoy genuine quality of life throughout their time with us.

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.
