When it comes to keeping everything clean and tidy, you’re a perfectionist. You take real pride in a job well done. What’s more, you’re a friendly and helpful individual who can mix well with students and staff alike. So bring your talents to Woldingham School - and be part of our welcoming and supportive team.
Carrying out a range of cleaning duties to the highest possible standards, you will also need to move furniture and fittings from time to time. A good level of physical fitness is important, along with previous cleaning experience. You should also be able to work well on your own initiative and as part of a team.
