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

- Where you'll work
Farm Lane is a modern and very welcoming purpose-designed care home in Fulham, south west London.
Our experienced team provides person-centred residential, nursing, respite care for older people. We also offer sensitive and supportive end of life care.
We involve residents and families at every step of the care planning journey, from creating individualised programmes to discussing any decisions that need to be made. The home has a calm and friendly atmosphere which helps people to feel settled very quickly. Many residents have lived in Fulham for a long time and we support each person to maintain their links with the community. And we always celebrate the diverse cultural occasions that are important to residents.
Farm Lane also includes an intermediate care rehabilitation suite for individuals who've had a stay in hospital and need some extra help before they return to their own home, and we work closely with the NHS in Fulham to provide this service. We also run stroke rehabilitation sessions. These are run much like a day centre for local people who have had a stroke.
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.
