Spectrum has over twenty properties in central Cornwall, most of which are homes for autistic people. Other properties include a school for autistic children and the head offices near Truro, where the maintenance team is based on site.

The team plays a vital role in responding to various needs across the properties – from scheduled decoration and renovation to emergency repairs and other heavy-duty jobs. All our homes need to be safe, autism-friendly environments which conform to regulatory expectations.

The work is varied and sometimes challenging – you will never be bored!

The post is permanent, 39 hours per week (Mon-Thu 0900-1700, Fri 0900-1600)

We can offer you £24,500 p.a.
