This job is due a lot more respect than it gets. Contract cleaners are responsible for the efficiency and safety of many businesses, large and small. Without these dedicated workers, the world would not go round. Generally, cleaners are responsible for ensuring the cleanliness of their designated workspace. Duties and hours may vary depending upon the type of business they are cleaning for and the size of their cleaning team.
Cleaning is not for the faint-hearted and can be very physically demanding involving long hours on your feet; walking, standing, climbing, pushing, pulling, bending, kneeling, crawling, lifting or carrying hip/backpack vacuum. Cleaners must adhere to strict health and safety guidelines as laziness or negligence could really harm you or someone else. Other key skills include: accuracy, thoroughness, neatness and efficiency. Responsibilities cover a wide variety of tasks such as bathrooms, kitchens, offices, workrooms and many more. Adzuna thinks a little 'three-cheers' is in order for these mighty workers!
