The residences are used by students and external customers and cleaning is required in some areas at weekends, therefore there is an expectation to work weekends on a rota basis. Weekend rota work requirements apply mainly during peak periods. You will work 5 days out of 7 and have days off during the week when you are required to work at weekends. Typically, the hours worked are from 10am until 4pm.
