The role of a cleaner is fundamental to any organisation, ensuring it operates harmoniously and in most cases, within health and safety laws. Whether working independently or part of a team, a cleaner is responsible for the cleanliness of the vehicle, building, or area they are assigned to.
Who can I work for?
There are many opportunities as cleaners are required within all manner of industries but the following are more typical examples: construction, hospitals, shopping centres, restaurants, public transport, offices, hotels, educational institutes, airports, factories, and residential homes.
Where and when can I work?
The range of employers is so diverse, cleaners can find themselves in a local domestic household or a cruise ship crossing the Atlantic. While travelling is not a common job requirement, cleaners will often operate outside of peak working hours, with owning their own transport being beneficial.
What qualifications do I need?
Currently there are no formal qualifications required of cleaners but some specialist areas request formal recognition of working practises, such as a CSCS card or the COSHH assessment.
Do I need any experience?
Cleaning work experience is almost always required when applying for a new job, particularly when working in food preparation or clinical environments where knowledge of health, safety and hygiene issues is paramount. Where work experience is lacking or to increase employability, an NVQ in Cleaning and Support Services is available.
