Exeter College (Oxford) is seeking to appoint a Cleaner (‘Abingdon Road Scout’) to work within its Housekeeping team.

The postholder will be responsible for cleaning a specified part of the College’s residential accommodation (based in our Abingdon Road properties in central Oxford), and ensuring that the required standards of cleanliness and hygiene are maintained.

This position would suit someone with a background in Housekeeping (ideally within a residential student environment), and who has a professional manner. Strong interpersonal skills are a must, as are a keen eye for detail and a commitment to providing the highest of cleaning standards. Training in COSHH and/ or manual handling would be an advantage, as would an NVQ Level 2 in Cleaning & Support Services (or equivalent).

You will be paid at the rate of £10.90 per hour for working 30 hours per week. Benefits include a generous annual leave entitlement, and optional membership of contributory pension & healthcare schemes.
