We would be grateful for any kind of help. The more you can help the quicker we can help more people.

We are looking for someone who has experience in growing a business. Helping us with the procurement process or helping us get an in with facilities managers for our services.

What will you be doing?

We are an organisation that likes to be self-sustainable. We need help getting larger contracts. The larger ongoing contracts we get the more we can help. The more people we can help find employment, the more upskilling and benefits we can offer. 

We have been trying to get into local authorities or with property managers, or building managers so we can approach them about working more ethically and using eco and ethical products and about why they should be making sure their suppliers are paying their staff a fair wage and not just minimum wage.

What are we looking for?

Someone who has several years' professional experience in the world of services and property. 

We are looking for someone who is passionate about helping people who need a leg up in life. 

We would like someone that cares about ethics and the principle of things and doing good.

What difference will you make?

The impact you will have will directly affect the people we work with and help find work/training services. These are often the poorest people with the least opportunities but are often the most will to learn and work. So helping them directly helps their families. We often have single mother / young mothers that we help and this make a huge difference to their self-confidence and their ability to fit into society and this filters down to their children. We also help those with language barriers to upskilling. Helping them get unstuck and a little leg up goes a long way to helping someone directly. 

What's in it for the volunteer?

This opportunity will enable someone to make a real difference at grass root levels. Your input could catapult someone out of working poverty and earning minimum to earning a livable wage with a prosperous future. Intern impacting how their families progress and live. We are a very friendly group and always eager to learn and take advice in order to help more people. This opportunity would allow someone to be part of the next do good company and help change how we view the service industry and cleaners.
