Cleaner

We are currently looking for a third cleaner to join our team.

You will be working a few hours a week and this may expand depending on the time of year and school holidays. Most of the hours are in the morning but sometimes early afternoons. It may include some weekends and covering holidays for others.

A priority area for us is our toilets but you will be cleaning all around the store. You will be working alongside our customers so you should be presentable, have good communication skills and willing to help, our customers will expect the same helpful attitude from you as they do from all our staff.

You should be able to work with pace, have a structured approach and most of all you will take a real pride in your job, we want the shiniest taps, the cleanest floors and no sign of a cob web!

Cleaning is a physical job so a degree of fitness is required. Sometimes you will be working with step ladders and other equipment so you should be aware of your safety and that of others.

There may be the opportunity to combine this role with future vacancies in the store as and when opportunities arise.
