Holiday Cottage Cleaner - Morpeth


We are looking for Holiday Cottage Cleaners to prepare our stunning holiday cottages at Wallington. This location has amazing landscapes, and you’ll reap the benefits of working in gorgeous surroundings. We are a small team and are immensely proud of our cottages and the standard we provide for our guests. You will be able to work independently or as part of a team, have an eye for detail, and great communication skills.

These are permanent roles and you must be available between 10am and 3.00pm (there may be flexibility with the finish time if the applicant has prior commitments) and you will require your own transport as public transport is limited. Free parking is available.

The Hours: Minimum 5 hours per week, the main changeover days being Friday or Saturday. However, short breaks mean that changeover days can also fall on other days of the week and you would have the opportunity to work additional hours if you are able to do so. There is no Sunday working. Rotas are issued in advance and we try to accommodate other commitments where possible.

Salary: £9.60 per hour / £2496 per annum

Duration: Permanent
