    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

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.

    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
  • We offer comfortable and homely surroundings plus a fun and caring atmosphere.

    Wellmeadow Lodge is an established and welcoming care home in a quiet and leafy part of Newton Mearns, south west of Glasgow. Our experienced and caring team provides round-the-clock residential, nursing and respite care for older people, including those with physical disabilities. We also offer specialist care for older people living with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia, plus supportive and sensitive end of life care.

    Each of our residents receives care that’s personalised to their unique needs, life stories and interests. We meet every resident before they move in, so that we can start getting to know them straight away. They’re also invited to lunch before they make a final decision so they can meet our team and other residents and make sure that they will feel entirely at home here.

Care UK is committed to ensuring that it employs people with the right mix of talent, skills and potential and will assess every applicant fairly regardless of race, gender, religion, sexual orientation, responsibilities for dependents, age, physical/mental disability or offending background. 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.
