What Skills and Experience do you need to be a Housekeeping Team Member?

Good communication skills are an advantage whilst excellent time keeping is essential.

**We value lived experience just as much as previous skills and knowledge.  We offer a robust induction, ongoing training, and further development, however, some of our roles will have further skills requirements.  It’s an advantage but not essential that our team members have experience volunteering or working with other people.
