The role of Cleaner covers a wide range of duties and skills, some of which are listed below. The applicant should be able to work unsupervised and plan work in terms of time and materials, in order to maximise efficiency. The successful applicant should ensure that good Health & Safety practices are followed at all times and should be discreet, with initiative and able to get on well with the other members of staff.

The Role & Responsibilities

Specific responsibilities will vary for each role whether they are in a Boarding House or in the main School but the following is a list of the core responsibilities:

  • To clean and tidy their designated area to a high standard, observing good practice and maintaining high hygiene standards.
  • To follow Health & Safety procedures and safe working practices, appropriate to the task in hand.
  • To report any illness or skin problems to the line manager promptly.

  • To cover for colleagues who may be absent.
  • Preparing and maintaining areas over letting periods.
  • To carry out any other reasonable task as directed by the line manager.

Working hours will vary from position to position, but staff can all expect to be asked to be available for occasional events and to “spring clean” at the end of each term.

Most Boarding House roles need Saturday cleaning cover when the school is in session on a Saturday.
