About the role:

We’re looking for an experienced and mature cleaner who takes pride in creating beautiful spaces. With a strong attention to detail, you will support our residents and house management team by ensuring communal living spaces are safe, comfortable, and hygienic.

In this role, you’ll be task-focussed, but you’re never too busy to say g’day to a resident passing by. In fact, your welcoming nature ensures residents feel safe as you help create spaces they can proud to live in.

Attention to detail is a must – as is the ability to abide by clear chemical and infection standards (d0n’t worry, we’ll help you figure them out!). You will always maintain an appropriate disposition, and respect resident privacy and dignity.

Specific tasks include:

  • Using industry-standard cleaning chemicals and tools
  • Abiding by Workplace Health & Safety procedures
  • Cleaning floors, walls and common living spaces
  • Cleaning shared resident bathrooms
  • Interacting with residents during your shift

About you:

You will be:

  • caring, patient, warm and welcoming
  • passionate about community
  • someone with a strong work ethic
  • able to work independently and as part of a team
  • an ‘always on time’ kind of person
  • a great cleaner!

Working with Servants, you’ll experience: 

  • A meaningful way to make a difference in the local community
  • A passionate, caring team
  • Flexibility, and opportunity to grow

Please note: In order to protect our residents from infection, the successful applicant must have received at least 2 vaccinations against COVID-19.

Your work will be about more than just creating clean spaces: you’ll be helping provide respect and dignity to diverse people. Your patience, gentleness and love for people will help us create communities where respect, dignity, hope, and opportunity are nurtured.
