  • 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:

    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
  • Everything we do at Woodland Hall is designed to make residents feel completely at home.

    Our modern purpose-built care home in Stanmore is set in a leafy residential area and provides tailored care and support for older people with a range of needs. We provide short respite stays through to full time residential dementia and nursing care. Our care home in Stanmore also has an intermediate rehabilitation suite for individuals who have recently come out of hospital and need some extra help and support before they return home.

    We’re highly experienced in caring for people with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia and our carers undertake specific dementia training, developed by Care UK’s own in-house experts. This provides our carers with a thorough insight into the challenges faced by people living with this condition and allows them to offer supportive and sensitive care.
