Vacancies and Voluntary Work
Cleaner – Part Time (10hrs per week) - Job vacancy at Poynton Town Council
Poynton Town Council has an immediate vacancy for a part time cleaner at the Civic Hall in Poynton.
The hours of work will be:
Monday 8am – 10am
Tuesday – Thursday 3.00pm – 5.00pm
Friday 3.30pm – 4.30pm
The postholder will be required to be flexible around the hours of work and may be required to occasionally work weekends. Hours may vary subject to the bookings and events taking place at the Civic Hall, notice of changes to the working pattern will be given in advance.
The Civic Hall provides excellent facilities to host a variety of community and private activities, celebrations and parties. The role holder will be required to ensure all areas of the Offices, Civic Hall, Reception Area, Rooms, Kitchen and Toilets used by hirers and staff are kept clean and tidy at all times.
There is a physical element of setting up and packing away furniture and the post holder will therefore need to have a flexible approach to work and be able to manage the practical demands of the role. In addition, the cleaner must be able to develop good relationships with all building users and visitors.
The salary is the National Joint Council for Local Government Services (NJC) New SCP 1 – 2, depending on experience, payable monthly.
If you would like to join this dynamic team to help continue to deliver high quality services to hirers, we would like to hear from you.

Pride in Poynton - Poynton Pick and Tidy Group
Show ‘Pride in Poynton’ by making a real difference to the presentation of your local neighbourhood.
Poynton Town Council organise a twice-yearly working day event on the Inclines, which involves clearing non-native vegetation and general tidying up. We also have a small team of volunteer litter pickers, ‘Poynton Pickers’, who regularly pick litter from areas in Poynton.
We’re looking to build upon this and encourage residents and businesses to join the ‘Poynton Pick and Tidy Group’ improving the presentation of public areas in Poynton.
If you would like to find out more, enjoy light gardening and would be happy to get involved, please contact Sharon Duke, Communities Co-ordinator on 01625 872238, for an informal, no obligation chat.
