Help us make great homes look even better.

Teign Housing is a successful social landlord employing over 90 ambitious, committed people, responsible for managing more than 3,600 homes across South Devon. As our Estates Caretaker/Cleaner, you will help us keep our properties clean and tidy, ensuring that they remain great places to live.

About the Estates Caretaker/Cleaner role

Dealing with everything from communal areas to bathrooms and flower beds, you will set the highest standards of hygiene and make certain that public spaces are litter-free. At the same time, you will maintain a broad range of cleaning equipment and report any failures to your manager, and will on occasion supervise external contractors, so you can expect considerable variety and real job satisfaction.

About you

To join us, you should possess sound cleaning and caretaking experience, preferably gained within a social housing environment. A formal health and safety qualification would be useful, as would awareness of risk assessments, but more importantly you will be a hard worker with deep passion for getting things done and making good homes even better.

Please note, a full driving licence is required for this role.


In return, we offer an excellent benefits package with a contributory pension scheme, 25 days’ leave per year plus bank holidays, free parking and a modern working environment.
