Mears Shropshire Home Services is the Home Improvement Agency serving the county of Shropshire. We deliver a range of services designed to promote and maintain independent living for the older, vulnerable and disabled people of Shropshire. Whether this be aids and adaptations through the Disability Facilities Grant process or through the Handyperson Service offering a range skills such as carpentry, plumbing and general small building repairs – we enable people to remain living in their own homes and environment, independently, safely and securely for as long as they can.

Mears is an organisation that challenges its local branches to get involved in local communities, offering social value in many different ways.

The Shropshire Branch would like to offer and support members of the armed forces and their families, especially those leaving the services and venturing into “civvy street” the opportunity of work placements to shadow our Small Repairs Technicians in the field to learn new basic skills or office based staff to learn the various business roles that are fundamental to the day to day operation of any organisation.

In addition to this the General manager, John Simcox,  would be willing to assist with CV writing, mock interviews and advice on how to approach vacancies and job applications to assist transitioning or former Military personnel finding gainful employment.
Should any current or former Armed Forces personnel wish to take up this offer, please contact John Simcox at or call 01743 458332
