Here at Serco, we are looking for Domestic Assistants to join our team at University Hospital Southampton. Our domestic assistants provide a high-quality domestic cleaning service to patients, staff and visitors at the Hospital.


Main Accountabilities 


Duties will include cleaning floors, work surfaces, furnishings and related equipment. You will empty, dispose and replace clinical and domestic waste as directed and that all equipment and materials required to perform all cleaning tasks are maintained in a hygienic and safe condition. Hospital cleaning is a vital part of overall health and safety, as it's a major contributor to controlling the spread of infections. 


What you'll need to do the role 

Strong communication is a key attribute for this role as you will be interacting with colleagues, patients, visitors and other staff on a day to day basis. You will also be required to have a good working knowledge of health and safety and hygiene practices. You must be eligible to work in the UK and roles are subject to DBS background check.


This is a physically demanding role and the post holder will be expected to stand for long periods of time with manual handling involved. 


Why Serco


Meaningful and vital work: Working within soft services at Serco means that you'll play a critical role in ensuring that patients continue to receive the care they need 24/7.


A world of opportunity: It takes a diverse team to support a hospital and we're big on internal progression. So whether you specialise your skills, progress into team management or move into operations, you'll find all the opportunity you need to evolve your career.


Great people: Hospitals are busy places and your role will see you interact with NHS staff, patients, and of course your supportive team. You will be part of the hospital.

  • Up to 6% contributory pension scheme.
  • Serco discounts which include cinema, merlin entertainment and online shopping discounts and discounts on mobile phone plans and leisure centre memberships.
