Are you someone who straightens a crooked picture as they walk past it? Do you want to help provide a well cared for school for children with Special Needs? This role would be ideally suited to someone with an eye for detail, who is able to put up a shelf, change a washer and paint a meeting room. An understanding of basic Health and Safety compliance measures would also be useful. If you take pride in your work and keeping a property spick and span, this could be your ideal job.
