The College is seeking to recruit part time Housekeeping Operatives to work between 20 and 35 hours per week.

You will work over a 7 day working week as per the rota set by the Housekeeping Manager. The shifts will usually be rostered for 5 days per week. Some overtime will be required throughout the year but more often during our conference periods (outside of term time).

You will need to be enthusiastic, well-organised and have a ‘can-do’ approach to all tasks set. Excellent communication skills are essential.

Benefits of the role include:

  • A contributory pension scheme
