This is leading to a steep increase in demand for cleaning services across the country so if you are an experienced cleaner or looking to get into the industry, now is actually a good time to start your job search.

Read on for our guide to the best way of finding the right cleaning job for you.
Starting Your Search
Cleaning positions are on the rise in places like hotels, office buildings, schools and universities, especially recently as those institutions have moved to strengthen their policies as the Coronavirus outbreak worsens. If you are looking for hotel cleaning jobs or cleaning positons of any kind, it’s always a good idea to go with the traditional methods first. This includes:
Contacting professional cleaning services in your area. They may have an increased demand for cleaning staff in full time or even freelance or part-time roles that they have not yet listed and would love to have you on board.
Contacting businesses directly - many larger office buildings, schools and hotels will provide in house janitorial services and they may have the need for more staff to help out with cleaning jobs at this time.
Building up a portfolio of domestic cleaning jobs. Try photographing (with your client’s permission) a client’s home before and after you have cleaned it. You can then offer this portfolio to prospective employers to show your experience and motivation.
Networking – use social media to join local groups in your area. You don’t have to limit yourself to groups for cleaners, they can be small business networking groups as this could open up great opportunities for you to find your next positon.
Engage professional recruitment companies that specialise in cleaning positions – these recruiters will have a wide range of hotel cleaning jobs, commercial cleaning positions and other roles in a broad range of industries.

If you are looking for something immediate, it may be wise find to take something with a lower salary or shorter term. You can still continue to look for better opportunities but at earn money while you look.
