Futures are delivering a pre-employment training course to support The University of Nottingham in their recruitment of Housekeeping Assistants within their university campus. Come to our Information Session to find out how we can help you in this recruitment process.

The roles will be primarily based within the main university site and will include the cleaning of bedrooms and public areas to a high standard, whilst providing excellent customer service at all times. In addition, staff should have good attention to detail and should be able to identify any issues and report them to the maintenance team to ensure a safe and comfortable environment for both customers and colleagues. All applicants are not expected to have cleaning experience, but should have a hardworking attitude and the ability and desire to work with customers.

Futures are working with The University of Nottingham in order to offer clients a chance to upskill themselves by completing a 2 week training course where they will develop the core skills required in Customer Service in order to offer the residents, staff and guests of The University of Nottingham the level of service that is expected. These teachings will be done through way of role plays, scenarios and work activities to embed the theoretical understanding into practical terms suitable for the roles available.

All candidates who enrol and successfully complete the programme will be offered a guaranteed interview for the position of Housekeeping Assistant. If successful, candidates will be offered a position subject to the completion of The University of Nottingham’s application form and employment checks.
