Salary: In line with National Minimum Wage

Shift hours: Full Time

Here in Colchester we currently have an opportunity for a cleaner to join our team. This is a great opportunity for a customer focused individual to join a world leading food and facilities management company, which can offer unrivalled opportunities for career progression.

We like to see some experience of commercial cleaning as we are responsible for a wide range of cleaning tasks, including offices, washroom and toilet areas, gymnasiums, receptions, healthcare settings, stores, military headquarters and more.

Applicants will need to be flexible in their approach as their areas of work within the PFI can change in response to our clients’ and customers’ requirements. A driving licence can be an advantage for certain positions as is the ability to drive a Sodexo vehicle (applies to applicants over the age of 21 only).

We have a large team, and an even larger site to cover including satellite areas, so successful applicants will be required to work on their own, or with colleagues, and often in the same area as military customers. We work in a Covid-19 safe environment and follow all government guidelines.

Please register your interest by uploading your CV onto the Sodexo job site, and emailing a covering letter to steve.ault@sodexo.com.
