We require you to have had both doses of the COVID-19 vaccine to work in our care homes.
You’re a caring, can-do person, experienced in garden maintenance and upkeep. 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 grounds are maintained to a high standard and are also appealing spaces to be in. As our Gardener, 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 a Gardener at Care UK, you can look forward to:
Competitive pay – we pay more than the average
Quality training to develop your skills
Bank holiday enhancements
Thousands of online and in-store discounts

At our brand new care home for older people in Bracknell, our skilled and experienced team provides a wide range of quality round-the-clock care services in stunning hotel-style surroundings. At Bickerton House, we treat every person we care for with dignity and respect. We create life story books full of information about their life and family, their hobbies and preferences – no detail will be too small. When we understand their likes and dislikes and how they like to spend their day, we will create care and lifestyle plans unique to them.

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.
