  • 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

    • 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 beautiful Shrewsbury care home opens in February 2022 and will provide individually tailored care in luxurious surroundings.

    Oxbow Manor on Oteley Road in Sutton is starting to take shape. When complete, the home will deliver permanent and short-term nursing and residential care, and specialist dementia care for up to 80 older people.

    At Care UK, we believe that moving into a care home is just another part of life. Residents in our care homes enjoy fulfilling lifestyles, with a variety of activities, entertainment and outings. Care UK residents go on holiday, go skiing and flying, and help us to run our homes. Maintaining independence is all-important, so residents often take on roles – from resident ambassador to receptionist, barista to head gardener.

    Each of the 80 bedrooms at Oxbow Manor will be beautifully furnished, individually decorated and have its own en-suite wet room. Our ground floor rooms will have direct access to our beautifully landscaped secure gardens. The home will also have a coffee shop, cinema room and hair and beauty salon, as well as extensive gardens and outdoor spaces.

    The care home will be divided into different suites – collections of bedrooms with a dining room and lounge. Creating smaller communities in the home makes it easier for residents to get to know each other, and it keeps hustle and bustle to a minimum, which helps residents who are living with dementia. Other elements of the home’s design – such as signage, lighting and colour schemes – will also promote independence for people living with dementia. 

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.
