The Abbotsford Trust is looking to recruit a reliable, responsible and friendly cleaner to join the housekeeping team, and help keep Abbotsford looking at its very best.

Abbotsford is a five-star visitor attraction and every year we host thousands of visitors from around the UK and the world. Our housekeeping team at Abbotsford is responsible for the care of the estate’s unique buildings, with a particular focus on the historic house, the visitor centre, and the accommodation wing. We are now looking for a cleaner to support our small and dedicated housekeeping team, particularly during busy periods.

You need to be trustworthy, able to clean to a high standard with minimal supervision, ensuring that Abbotsford is kept looking in great condition. We are looking for a positive and helpful person who enjoys interacting with a wide range of people. Ideally you will have some experience of lone-working. Previous cleaning experience is desirable but not essential.

We require cover on a casual/variable hours basis, covering guest changeover days within the five star luxury self-catering Hope Scott Wing, during the busy holiday months, or cleaning the historic rooms at Abbotsford or the Visitor Centre. The contract is being offered on a permanent basis.

This is a variable hours post with a pay rate of £7.50 ph and a minimum of 10 hours per week. Immediate start preferred.
