The University of Bath Accommodation department houses over 4000 students throughout the academic year and during the summer month’s external companies use our accommodation services for conferences, summer camps and away days.

We have vacancies for part-time Domestic Assistants (27.5 hours a week) to provide a high quality cleaning service in our student accommodation.

As a Domestic Assistant you will be required to clean student kitchens, bathrooms and bedrooms in accordance with service level agreements and standards of hygiene and cleanliness. Other responsibilities include the setup of student and guest rooms, reporting maintenance requirements and ensuring health and safety within the workplace. Full details of this role are included in the Job Description.

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 (June to September). You will work 5 days out of 7 and have days off during the week when you are required to work at weekends. The hours for this role are 10am to 4pm.

Previous experience of cleaning work is highly desirable as is experience of working in a hotel or student accommodation environment. If you enjoy striving to achieve high levels of customer service and working within a team then this could be the role for you. We’re interested in your personality, whether you can offer a warm welcome and be a team player.

We offer a generous package of pay, benefits and services including:

  • 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 £20 Love2Shop vouchers up to annual awards of £750
  • 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 a £20 voucher
  • 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, childcare vouchers and cycle-to-work schemes.
