Specialist Cleaning Technician

Date 03/08/22

Location Ewelme, near Wallingford

If deskbound is a dirty word for you and you’re practical and enjoy team work, how about a varied job that could see you dealing with an oil spillage and de-greasing a food factory one week, to decontaminating a laboratory and pumping out a cellar the next? As our Specialist Cleaning Technician, you will join our small and skilled Industrial Services team at our Ewelme site in South Oxfordshire and receive a competitive salary and a host of great benefits, including:

- Discretionary bonus (performance based)
- Pension scheme (you contribute 5% of pay, Grundon matches this) with life assurance cover 
- Option to buy additional holiday 
- Reward and discount shopping scheme 
- Range of wellbeing benefits, including Employee Assistance Programme, Cycle to Work, health cash plan and discounted gyms

What you'll be doing as Specialist  Cleaning Technician
Our growing Industrial Services team provides specialist and varied services to Grundon customers nationwide, but mainly in the southeast. Using a variety of tools, you'll undertake high-level deep cleaning, tank cleaning, site decontamination and decommissioning projects, which will involve confined space entry, high-pressure water jetting and handling hazardous materials. The work involves physical labour and conditions can be uncomfortable e.g. sometimes wearing a protective suit, respirator or full-face mask.

What we're looking for in our Specialist Cleaning Technician
- A background in industrial cleaning activities is not essential as we'll give you all the training you need
- Practical team player with a ‘can do’ attitude
- You're happy to work outdoors in all weathers, in different locations - including, when needed, away from home. Some of our team are up for being away 50% of the time, others infrequently.
- Full UK driving licence

Working hours: An average 40 hours, Mon-Fri, 7am-3.30pm. However, due to the nature of the role you will need to be flexible to changing your working hours, which may include working weekends. You can expect extensive travel, including extended periods away from home.
