We can help you find maintenance jobs in Scotland

Despite the fact that the vast majority of jobs in the construction and maintenance industry have disappeared almost overnight thanks to the global economic recession that so badly affected the United Kingdom, if you're willing to put in a little extra time and effort for your job search, you should be able to find maintenance jobs in Scotland that will, at the very least, keep you ticking over until you can find something a little bit more suitable for your skills and qualifications.

In order to work in maintenance, it is expected that you have a certain level of expertise and experience working within the trade industry. While it doesn't really matter whether you're a carpenter, plumber, electrician or whatever else by trade, it is essential that you can show at least three years worth of experience working in some form of manual trades.

The kind of work that you will be expected to do in maintenance jobs in Scotland, will include general handiwork, minor construction, cleaning, painting, disposing of rubbish and many other repair jobs. It is worth noting that you will most likely require a full driver's license and your own transport in order to be considered for these positions.

You can expect to earn somewhere in the region of £6.50 and £7.75 per hour for your work in the maintenance industry. The best place to look for jobs in maintenance tend to be the hospitality sector. Almost all hotels or apartment buildings will have a number of maintenance staff on the books at any given time. For these companies, this is much cheaper than outsourcing any repair work that is needed, especially for smaller jobs.

There are a number of websites out there where you can find all the latest maintenance jobs in Scotland, however if you are unsure where to look you can check out the following;
