Colin Clarke

Head of Maintenance

Hello. I am Colin and I oversee all the planned and reactive maintenance that needs to take place in a large care home like Brampton View. When I left school I trained to be an electrician and since then I have studied management at the University of Northampton. I worked in the construction industry for several years before joining a care company and have remained working in the healthcare sector for over 20 years. I joined Brampton View in 2015 as Head of Maintenance.

On a day-to-day basis I liaise with Brampton View’s General Manager to plan the day’s work for me and my two colleagues in the Maintenance Team, as well as looking at ongoing and longer term projects. I also liaise with outside contractors who do work on the premises from time to time, or who visit us to service and maintain equipment.

My role includes regular testing of systems such as fire alarms, heating and water. I am also responsible for internal decoration and repairs, maintaining the outside areas of the home, including the gardens, and arranging repairs or replacement of equipment.

I like to ensure residents have a say in aspects of Brampton View that are personal to them, such as the décor in their own rooms. I enjoy making the home a safe, happy, secure environment for residents which helps to give peace of mind to their families.

Outside of work I enjoy a game of golf and I like gardening. My main hobby, however, is my love for Jaguar cars and I have owned quite a few over the years.
