Have you got an eye for detail? Do you spot things that others miss? Then you could be just the person we’re after! You’ll need to have exceptionally high standards of cleaning and strive for excellence at all times.

We are looking for Domestic Assistants to join our Accommodation Operations team here at the University of Bath. We have part time (27.5 hours per week) opportunities available where you will work primarily between 10:00 and 16:00 which will include some weekend working.

During the University term time you’ll be cleaning in student accommodation and ensuring that our students are provided with excellent customer service. During the summer months, our accommodation transforms into a 4000 bedroom hotel where you will be servicing rooms and communal areas for our commercial guests and other visitors who use our excellent facilities.

This isn’t just all about cleaning though. You’ll be a friendly face to our customers and help them where possible. We’re interested in your personality, whether you can offer a warm welcome and be a team player.

No previous cleaning experience is needed as we will provide full training.

Here's just some of the benefits of working with us

  • A competitive rate of pay
  • A generous pension scheme
  • Up to 25 days annual leave per year, eight banks holidays and five extra discretionary days
  • No split shifts
  • We close over the Christmas break but you’re still paid for this time off
  • Regular awards for shining stars, from Love2Shop vouchers up to annual awards!
  • A commitment to the wellbeing of our teams, with mindfulness sessions, fitness boot camps and free health checks
  • Great staff social events
  • A staff suggestion scheme, with the chance to share your ideas and earn vouchers
  • The chance to develop, with many training courses and job shadowing opportunities
  • Up to 20 hours a year personal development time for fitness classes, training, volunteering and charity work
  • Tax and national insurance savings through salary exchange schemes on nursery care and childcare vouchers.

Please note that working hours will be worked on a 5 over 7 rota basis where you may be expected to work weekends and Bank Holidays.
