Churchill Secures Combined Service

Contract With RCS Churchill London, a division of Churchill Contract Services, has been awarded a combined cleaning and security contract by The Royal College of Surgeons (RCS) for its premises in London.

The two and a half year contract includes the day-to-day cleaning of the office spaces, porterage and front of house services. The RCS is currently in temporary accommodation while its main ‘Barry-designed’ grade II* listed building is redeveloped into a modern and flexible facility. Churchill’s contract with the RCS covers the temporary accommodation adjacent to the Barry building.

Are Your Employees

Working Here Legally? How often do employers of all sizes check if applicants have the right to work here, and how fail safe are their methods? With fines of £20,000 per illegal worker or imprisonment for the employer lurking and over 8,400 producers of fake documents in Europe, it is easy for a busy recruiter to miss one fake using traditional methods.

A new cloud-based solution from uComply provides your firm with a consistent process for Right to Work and identifies the sophisticated fake documents either on its mobile or laptop system, for less than the price of a cup of coffee per candidate.

uComply contains the Home Office’s guidance process and lists all the documents required by immigrants from every country.

The interviewer taps in the country of origin and the list of required paperwork will appear so the interviewee can be advised what is needed.

The system allows the interviewer to take a photograph, save it on the cloud and the candidate signs

the screen to allow storage of the documents. This app scans documents, reads and saves all data off a passport chip. Data is easily retrieved from uComply’s encrypted cloud solution. No other system provides full Home Office guidance checking and passport chip reading.

The laptop version was developed for the user interviewing large numbers of candidates. It can plug in to the same type of passport checker used at airports and border crossings and can check a passport for UV and Infrared readings.

Birkin Cleaning Services a large southern cleaning contractor has used uComply’s mobile version for six months. CEO Paul Ashton says the system is essential for recruitment. He said: “uComply offers the widest range of checks, the price is keen and the training is superb. It is easy to use, non- aggressive, does what it promises and our managers love it.”

The uComply system is continuous. Once employed, it emails alerts to the employer to advise of expiring documents like passports, VISA, biometric cards, country ID cards, ECS check and driving licence. TOMORROW’S FM | 15

The RCS was reassured by Churchill’s track record and the innovative aspects of the proposal. For example, the introduction of the Purex water system was a draw factor, not just because of the reduced costs of cleaning materials but because it also supports the RCS’s move towards a more sustainable operating model.

Walter Hand, Facilities Manager at RCS, said: “Churchill’s bid demonstrated not only value for money, but also highlighted where innovations could be used to deliver added value and drive efficiencies going forward.”

Joe Saisi, Operations Director at Churchill London, said: “We’re excited to work with such a prestigious organisation like the RCS, and we hope to make its time in temporary premises as comfortable as possible. I’m looking forward to seeing the contract progress as we collaborate on developing a streamlined facilities management strategy and assisting the RCS team ahead of its move back into the redeveloped building.”
