Maintenance operatives keep buildings in good running order by carrying out general repairs and maintenance.
Salaries depend on location, employer and any overtime you may do.
You do not need any specific qualifications but it helps to have the Welsh Baccalaureate, GCSEs at grade 9-4 (A*-C) in maths and English.
A good way into this career is through an apprenticeship, where you work towards NVQ Level 2 in Maintenance Operations. To search for apprenticeship vacancies in your area, visit the Government's vacancy matching site, or in Wales, Careers Wales.
