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

- Where you'll work
Set next to Regent's Canal, we offer high quality care and a great location.
Muriel Street Resource Centre is a modern, purpose-built care home set in a leafy residential area next to the Regent's Canal in Islington, north London. We provide residential, nursing and respite care for older people, including individuals living with Alzheimer's, other forms of dementia or mental health issues. We also offer supportive and compassionate end of life care.
Our highly skilled and experienced team spends time getting to know residents individually, so that we can create personalised care plans that take into account each person’s unique needs, lifetime experiences, choices and interests. We involve residents and family members at every step of the care planning journey.
Muriel Street care home has an attractive, contemporary look and every aspect of the home and gardens has been designed specifically to meet residents’ needs. All of our team members share the goal of providing the highest possible standards of care – but we’re also very welcoming and approachable, and always available for a friendly chat.
