New Job Opportunities As Commercial

Cleaning Company Expands Contract and specialist cleaning company, Monthind, is expanding its contracts in the Cambridgeshire area, creating a number of new job opportunities across all sectors of the company’s operations.

Monthind Clean has a strong foothold across East Anglia, being one of the region’s leading independent contract cleaning companies. With the recent acquisition of two East Anglian based businesses, securing the jobs of 45 employees and bringing the company’s employee total to almost 1,000, Monthind’s plans for further expansion and escalating geographical coverage signifies the need for new recruits to join the company and its teams of dedicated specialist cleaners.

Monthind provides bespoke cleaning and maintenance services for a wide range of premises, meaning new recruits will be required for contracts in commercial offices, manufacturing

and warehouse sites, schools and colleges, transportation terminals and public sites. Its specialist cleaning services division also meets the time-critical and unique demands of local authorities and emergency services, which can include biohazard, waste management and forensic cleans.

“Our company’s ethos is to deliver a first-class cleaning service, and the key factors driving our business are the quality of the people we employ and our commitment to training, coupled with a sound management structure,” said Director, Simon Biggs. “Our high staff retention rates and below-average sickness records are a testament to our responsibilities as employers, while our staff news announcements clearly indicate that we are proud of our employees and that we are dedicated to the self-development of individuals, by providing high levels of training across every division.”

Staff Training All Round

A college in Telford and a cleaning company in the town have joined forces to deliver training to all staff, and give them the opportunity to gain a new qualification.

The scheme between Telford College of Arts and Technology (TCAT) and Cleveland Cleaning Ltd, is part of a project funded by the European Social Fund. Under the Skills Support for the Workforce scheme, all staff at the family-run firm were invited to advance their customer service and cleaning skills.

Owner of Cleveland Cleaning, Marie McCreadie, said: “We decided to run the course after finding out about it at a Shropshire Chamber of Commerce meeting. We approached staff at TCAT and we’re really pleased with how the first session went. Everyone seemed to really enjoy it and get so much out of it, looking forward to getting a new qualification.”


About 25 members of staff went to the event and as a result, about 15 have signed up to do a Level Two NVQ in Customer Care or Cleaning. Another employee, Office Manager Sam Pye, joined the firm last year and has since begun an apprenticeship in Business Administration at TCAT.

Claire Wills, Project Manager for the Skills Support for the Workforce scheme at TCAT, said it is part of a two-year scheme which runs until 2015 across the Marches area, involving Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin and Herefordshire. Claire commented: “The project is targeting employers who employ less than 250 staff. It aims to increase engagement and support the participation of employed adults in education, to enhance their skills and become more successful in the labour market.

As Monthind expand its operations across the Cambridgeshire and surrounding areas, vacancies will open up for window cleaners, offices and commercial premises cleaners, deep clean specialists, plus IT and High Tech environmentalists, clinical waste disposal agents, pest controllers and biohazard and forensic cleaners.

“We’re working with Cleveland Cleaning for Business Administration and Leadership and Management training, and we will be introducing the certificate in Cleaning Principles and Customer Service training too. It is a really beneficial scheme, and worthwhile for businesses as there is no charge to them.”
