Job Description
We are currently recruiting temporary Cleaners to work in schools across St Helens, to play a vital role in enabling our schools to operate a clean and healthy environment for our children.

Your role will be to provide cleaning services to cover for absences and to provide additional capacity in schools on an ad-hoc basis.

Where possible, we will look to allocate you work in schools that are in easy travelling distance to you. We will also aim to provide you with reasonable notice of the days and times of the work available. However due to the nature of the service requirements, there will be occasions when you will be contacted at short notice.

The working times are likely to be before school opens, during lunch and after school has closed, however there maybe requests from schools for cleaning services throughout the school day.

Your duties will consist of cleaning toilets, classrooms, corridors, and will include dusting, vacuuming, brushing, mopping, buffing, etc. for which induction and training will be given.

Your health and wellbeing is a priority for the Council, as such all Covid 19 social distancing guidelines are regularly reviewed and applied in accordance with Government guidance.

The Benefits:
These positions are temporary but by joining us you will be considered for permanent cleaning opportunities as and when roles become available.

As a temporary Cleaner you have the flexibility to inform us of when you are available for work to fit in with your lifestyle.

This Authority is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.

These posts are subject to Enhanced DBS disclosure.

Council employees are required to abide by the ethical standards embodied by the 7 NOLAN principles of conduct in public life. These include selflessness, integrity, objectivity, accountability, openness, honesty and leadership.

We welcome applications from the BAME community.
