    About the Role

    The role involves providing a high-quality cleaning and clearance service within all KHA properties.

    The team is responsible for cleaning during changes of tenancies, including pre and post-cleaning, wheelie bin emptying and cleaning, and internal and external clearance works. You should have previous cleaning and labouring experience with a good knowledge of health and safety, in particular with the use of cleaning products, sharps identification and removal, working at height, decontamination, and working within confined spaces (loft clearance). Several years of experience in a similar environment is desirable.

    Whilst the depot is based in Glenrothes, you will be expected to work at and from any other properties operated by KHA. Extensive travel will be required. A van will be provided for the team, therefore a current driving licence is essential.

As part of that, it particularly welcomes applications from people who are currently registered homeless or have been in the last 12 months. It guarantees shortlisting to any applicant who meets that criterion and the essential criteria for the vacancy. If they offer you the role and you are homeless at that point, they will also offer you a tenancy in one of its properties as part of the Naumann Initiative.
