Your new role
Are you someone who’s proactive, a great team player and have a good eye for details?
We have an exciting opportunity for you to join our team as a Communal Services Cleaner where you’ll be based in Yeovil!
Your day to day will include sweeping, vacuuming, washing floors, walls, ceilings, doors and other fixtures and fittings along with litter picking, graffiti removal and carpet cleaning.
What you'll need:
- Previous experience in a similar role
- Knowledge and understanding of the range of practical and technical issues relevant to the provision of carrying out communal cleaning.
- Knowledge and skills in the use of chemicals and mechanical devices associated with cleaning operations.
- A full driver’s licence
You’ll also be expected to carry out all tasks to an extremely high standard.
You'll be covering sites across Somerset and the surrounding areas from our main base and have the flexibility to plan their workload.
This is an excellent opportunity for an enthusiastic, self-motivated and well-driven individual looking to contribute to a dynamic and diverse team. We're always looking to improve ourselves and empower the lives of residents and communities they live in.
Don't worry about getting from site to site, we'll provide you with an Abri van.
If this is the opportunity you've been looking for, we'd love to hear from you!
We’re Abri, a housing association based in the south of England. One of the largest in fact. We've got 35,000 homes and 1,500 colleagues. And if all our 80,000 residents lived in the same place, we’d have a town roughly the size of Guildford.
We’re a passionate bunch. We think we can make a real difference. Homelessness, poverty, inequality, a lack of affordable housing. They’re all linked. They’re issues that affect so many, young and old alike. And we don’t think that’s right. We want to give people the chance to dream big and be who they want to be. Homes are at the heart of everybody’s lives. And we exist to help make good homes, and good lives a reality for everyone.
We’ve all got different backgrounds, strengths and experiences. But we share the same values. It’s these shared values that bring us together as one team.
Our colleagues embrace these every day. Be the difference to our customers and colleagues, always curious and look for better solutions, achieve together by working in partnership with others, own it openly through working with others in an open and honest way, and finally embrace possibility and see changes and challenges as welcomed opportunities.
If you share our values and want to make a real difference in the world, you’re on to a winner and we’d love to hear from you!
What you can expect from us
We want our colleagues at all levels to be bold, inspiring and not afraid to speak up and be their authentic selves.
Your wellbeing is really important to us, so you can expect a competitive reward package to ensure you and your family are supported at work and at home. You’ll receive 28 days of annual leave a year (pro-rata for our part time colleagues) with Bank Holidays on top as well as being entitled to our generous pension scheme.
We’ll work with you to help you reach your goals through personal development plans and our in-house People Development team.
Depending on your role you may need to work a set shift pattern, or you may have greater flexibility to choose when and where you work. Either way, we strive to ensure all colleagues have a degree of flexibility to attend life’s important events.
Abri is committed to promoting an inclusive culture. We want our colleagues to bring their individual differences, life experiences and knowledge into the workplace and we welcome their contribution to our amazing company. Everyone is different, everyone is unique.
Interviews will be held via Microsoft Teams or at either Collins House office or Alvington office.
