About the Role

As a commercial cleaning operative you will be responsible for variety of tasks including mopping, toilet cleaning, washing walls, vacuuming, emptying bins, dusting and sanitising surfaces safely and professionally to a high standard. However, the main reponsibility for this role would be the bailing of cardboard and plastic into the bailing machine therefore making this role a very physically demanding role.
