JOB VACANCY: Cleaner - Weekends

Added: Tuesday 03 August 2021


The Bristol Folk House is a 100-year-old Adult Education Centre, providing a large range of part time courses and workshops for the community. Our aim is to provide a community space for generations to come and increase our appeal to the wide community, including improving our accessibility.

The role of the Cleaner at the Bristol Folk House is to take care of our facilities and carry out cleaning and maintenance duties.

The goal is to keep our building in a clean and orderly condition and maintaining high standards of cleanliness throughout the building.

The hours will depend on our event programme; however, we can be flexible around the successful candidate in regard to morning or evening hours. This role would suit someone who is looking for something to fit in around other commitments and is interested in supporting the arts and working in an education/community centre setting.

This is a key holder role, so references are required.

The Bristol Folk House has had a tough year, like so many hospitality and event spaces, and we are looking forward to welcoming new staff to our team to help us rebuild this winter.
