Job Description

Full Time (37.5 hpw)
Salary £18,200 to £25,000 per annum
Empowering customers to live independently and enjoy their well-earned retirement.   That’s when it hits home.
We’re currently putting the finishing touches to our brand new, extra care retirement community in the beautiful seaside town of Scarborough.  Opening very soon, we’ll be supporting older people aged 55+ with varying care and support needs to live independently in their own home and enjoy their well-earned retirement!.  We're offering high quality living in our 63 beautifully designed apartments with a variety of on-site facilities including assisted living technology, wellbeing and care provision, restaurant, café, hair/beauty salon, communal rooms and picturesque landscaped gardens.  It will be a real hub within the local community.  Brilliant isn’t it!
Based from our fantastic new building on Scalby Road, we are very close to Scarborough town centre on public transport or by car (you can almost smell the fish and chips and we’re sure that we’ll be popping out often to grab some for our lunch!). 
Your role
You will be keeping our wonderful brand new building spick and span, ensuring it’s a safe environment for our customers and colleagues.  You’ll look after all  minor repair works such as repairs to doors, locks and changing tap washers along with general household duties such as unblocking sinks. You’ll also look after internal decoration of the premises and any emergency repairs that are necessary. If you’re a little green fingered that’s great with us as you’ll also do some general garden maintenance (but don’t worry we don’t expect you to be Alan Titchmarsh!).
Please note any offer of employment is subject to an Enhanced Disclosure check through the DBS the costs of which are met by us.
About our team
You’ll be reporting to Jemma our Community and Wellbeing Manager, and working alongside Hayley our Registered Manager who have recently joined us bringing a wealth of experience to lead our brilliant service.  Nicky, our Operations Manager, has worked for Home Group for 8 years so you’ll have tons of experienced support on hand working within our exciting brand new service.
About you
You’ll be able to work on your own initiative, be a great team player who has skills in maintenance and can turn their hand to carpentry, basic plumbing and decorating.  You’ll be organised and a great communicator in order to work alongside our colleagues as well as having regular interaction with our customers.
