Experienced cleaners required for Dorset’s community hospitals

3rd November 2020

The county’s community hospitals are calling for experienced cleaners to support our existing teams and help make a difference during the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic.

Cleaners are required at the Dorset HealthCare-run hospitals in Alderney, Blandford, Bridport, Swanage, Wimborne, Shaftesbury, Sherborne and Weymouth.

Working shift patterns, including evening and weekends, the hospitals are looking to recruit people to undertake all aspects of cleaning as directed by the local Matron.

Richard Northwood, Facilities Manager at the Trust, said:

“Hygiene and cleanliness are central to the battle against COVID-19. This work will not only support our hospitals, but also give local people the chance to get involved and help their NHS protect people and save lives.”

Full training will be provided and all necessary personal protective equipment (PPE) will be supplied.

Applicants will need to be diligent, hard working, trustworthy and able to follow procedures.

The rate of pay is from £9.20 - £9.88 per hour, inclusive of holiday pay, and there are also enhancements for weekend and evening working.
