  • 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:

    • 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


    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
  • Our new care home in Chichester opens in the autumn of 2021. We’ll provide quality
    care for older people in a luxurious setting.

    Our new Chichester Grange care home is taking shape on Grosvenor Road. Here,
    our experienced and committed team will deliver the best in permanent and short-
    term residential, nursing and specialist dementia care.

    Like in all Care UK homes, the care we provide will be fully tailored to the individual
    needs, interests and preferences of each person we care for. We call this person-
    centred care. We are also passionate about ensuring that residents and their families
    are fully involved in decisions around their care. That way, residents feel in control,
    and receive the care they need in the way they wish.

    When you first set foot inside our Chichester Grange care home – with its hair and
    beauty salon, cinema room, welcoming café and inviting dining rooms – you’ll be
    forgiven for thinking you’ve entered a five-star hotel. We believe that moving into a
    care home is just another part of life, and one that should be enjoyed to the full. So
    everything from the design of the home, to the meals we provide, and the activities
    we organise are all focused on supporting residents to feel like royalty.
