This is an updated version of a post we wrote back in 2018. We get a lot of feedback from our customers who tell us they are all for our ethical approach to employment. It is really important to us that we employ all of our cleaners in Brighton, pay them above the living wage, support them with work and personal issues when they need it, provide holiday and sick pay, contribute to a pension scheme and create a good working environment where it is pleasant and rewarding to come to work. This is good for us as a company, good for our cleaners in Brighton and good for you – our customer!
We are really picky when it comes to recruitment! Our cleaners in Brighton are the best cleaners you will find in the city. All of our cleaners in Brighton undergo a three-stage selection procedure which establishes their suitability, cleaning skills, previous cleaning experience, right to work in the UK and trustworthiness in the form of a DBS check.
What do you look for when selecting a cleaner for your home? There are several priorities to consider, and these will vary according to your situation:
Trust and Security
Trust has got to be very high on the list when considering which cleaners in Brighton to let into your home. The person you let into your home will have free run of every room, access to your possessions and will most probably have contact with your family, children and pets if you have them. You are giving your cleaner a huge amount of responsibility, and you must be absolutely sure you can trust them. Our cleaners in Brighton all go through our thorough selection process to ensure they are eligible to work in the UK. We undertake DBS checks to ensure they are trustworthy and honest and we check their ID documents.
An essential factor is, can they clean to the high standard you require. Very often, the expectations we have when we clean for ourselves are not quite as high as when we are paying someone to do it for us. Also, think about what else they are required to do: will they need to iron, tidy and organise your home? Do they have the skills and the eye for detail that’s required? All of our cleaners in Brighton are selected for their cleaning experience and skills. We look for attention to details and thoroughness. A lot of our cleaners in Brighton have previously worked in hotels or prestigious homes.
Reliability and Consistency
It’s also important that you get the same cleaner each time and that they are reliable. There’s nothing worse than a constant churn of new people who are not familiar with your home and your requirements, or the disappointment to come home and find that the cleaner has not turned up. We have a high retention rate of cleaners in Brighton. We ensure a good rate of regular pay which is above the living wage. Together with the other benefits that employment provides we create a pleasant working environment to make sure our cleaners in Brighton enjoy coming to work.
You can trust any one of our cleaners in Brighton in your home. We carry out several checks to ensure we have confidence in the people we are sending into your home (including UK CRB, UK Right-to-Work, Identity and Reference checks). All our cleaners in Brighton are trained to meet our exacting standards. We would rather turn new customers away than employ people who cannot deliver our very high standards – our long-established and excellent reputation has to be maintained!
