Cleaner/Caretaker – closing date 19 October 2018

Reading International Solidarity Centre (RISC) is a Development Education Centre close to the heart of Reading’s town centre. It works with schools and community groups to raise the profile of global issues and promote action for sustainability, human rights and social justice. It is Reading’s number one community hub which includes the World (fair trade) Shop, Global Café, Exhibition Space, Edible Roof-garden, Meeting Rooms and Conference Facilities.

We are looking for a part-time caretaker/cleaner:
  • The caretaker/cleaner is a very important member of the caretaking team as they are often meeting and greeting our many room-users.
  • We are looking for someone who can be flexible, with good communication skills and who can ensure that a polite and professional manner is maintained at all times.
  • There is some manual handling (training will be given) and possibly some late night working (until 10pm).
  • We have a large number of groups who use the meeting rooms each week and they expect the rooms to be clean and ready for their use, so attention to detail is also important.

The role is a permanent, part-time position of 14 hours a week – hours to be agreed with your supervisor. Interview date – to be confirmed.
