Role Description

Directorate of Technology, Estates & Facilities - Facilities Services

As a Cleaner within the University of York you will ensure that allocated areas of the campus are cleaned to a consistently high standard. You will carry out general cleaning duties, in any areas allocated by your Supervisor or Cleaning Manager, to the required standard and in accordance with agreed service levels. Following training, you will ensure that cleaning materials and equipment are used in a safe, efficient and cost effective way.

Due to the nature of the work, you will be required to be on your feet for the duration of the shift and must have the ability to carry out significant manual handling duties such as:  making beds, carrying linen bundles, use of heavy floor cleaning machinery, using stairs etc.

You should also have the ability to communicate effectively with others and to receive and understand instructions.  In addition, you will need to be able to use email and other online systems so that you are able to receive University communications, including e-payslips.

Examples of shifts and working patterns currently available include but are not limited to:

07.00-10.00 - Saturday and Sunday (6 hours per week)

07.00-13.30 - Saturday and Sunday (12 hours per week)

16.30-19.30 - Monday to Friday (15 hours per week)

16.30-18.30 - Monday to Friday (10 hours per week)

Whilst the shifts represent regular working patterns, the positions require the flexibility to work any 5 days out of 7, including weekends when agreed in advance. In particular, during vacation periods and clean-down periods, the workload can fluctuate and our cleaners are expected to be flexible in their hours of work. All members of the team should be able to work additional hours from time to time.

The hourly rate of pay is £9.96 per hour rising to £10.17 per hour after 12 months [£19,209-£19,623  per year, reduced for part time working].
