Interested In A Career In Cleaning?
At Diamond Swindon we routinely field inquiries from would-be employees about careers in cleaning. While we don’t always have posts available we’re happy to offer advice to those wishing to work in the industry. This blog post will outline the jobs market, your starter requirements and the demands of a cleaning job.
According to figures from the National Careers Service, the starter salary in the cleaning industry is £12,000 per year, rising to £18,000 as you graduate to senior roles. Cleaners will typically work in residential or commercial premises, although specialized cleaning inc. upholstery, ovens and carpets are in demand too.
Industry Regulations & Experience
Every industry has its governing bodies. A gardener, for example, may be registered with the Gardener’s Guild. A removalist is registered with BAR (British Association of Removalists). Tree Surgeon’s are required to carry NPTC qualifications. While the cleaning industry isn’t as dangerous as other careers it has its checks and balances too.
The British Institute of Cleaning Science is a body designed to raise standards and education within the cleaning sector. For many employers, including Diamond, such qualifications are not always mandatory. However experience is helpful and the right attitude and work ethic is essential.
Depending on the location and client in question, a criminal records check may be necessary. This can be executed via the Disclosure & Barring Service (DBS).
While many jobs are 1 time contracts, weekly or monthly domestic and office cleaning contracts are the mainstay of the industry. Maintaining good relationships with clients and customising our service to meet their needs ensures we establish long term contracts that last. This is evidenced by testimonials found on our homepage at DiamondSwindon.co.uk.
