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 A*-C in maths and English. These are not essential but can be useful for the calculations you do in the job.
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.
