About the role

We have a vacancy for a Janitor to carry out cleaning duties in multi-storey tenanted properties. This is a customer focused role, which requires the cleaning of communal areas to a high standard. The role also involves monitoring buildings and reporting any security concerns, faults or repairs within communal areas. The successful candidate will have an awareness of health and safety legislation and carry out driving duties when required. Experience of cleaning and using cleaning equipment would be advantageous, as would COSHH awareness. You must be flexible and adaptable. There may be a requirement to work weekends, to meet the needs of the business.
