Meet our team of hands-on caretakers. The team work in some of our larger estates, keeping shared areas tidy and carrying out minor repairs in communal areas straight away without the need to wait for a job to be booked.
Caretakers are easy to spot with their blue 'looking after your estate' shirts. They can tackle jobs like:
- General cleaning of shared areas
- Removing fly-tipping
- Cleaning graffiti
- Minor repairs in shared areas
- Some grounds maintenance
"The best part of our job is definitely when residents come and say hello and thanks for what we're doing," says team supervisor Mike Purnell. "Anything we can do to try and make their lives better is very rewarding.
"At Tintagel Close in Keynsham we built a chalk board teepee for the children to use and they helped decorate it. It was a great community event and it's nice to see them using it regularly now."
