The UK’s largest flexible working company has launched a dedicated service for the cleaning sector. redwigwam has created Red Clean in response to the huge demand for cleaning personnel in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.
Red Clean gives companies instant access to fully managed, flexible cleaning staff, handles all HR, payment and administration, giving businesses the flexibility to scale up or down subject to their needs. New clients also pay no booking fee for the first job they place with the platform. It is also free to post jobs on the site.
Established five years ago, redwigwam has quickly become the UK’s leading flexible working community. The company’s AI-powered platform currently has over 150,000 workers and 4,500 hirers registered.
The business saw a sharp rise in enquiries from the cleaning and facilities management sector as companies reopened following lockdowns, but with much stricter cleaning protocols in place.
This has included providing specialist sanitising and decontamination services for Covid-19 for offices and workplaces to protect employees and the public.
Lorna Davidson, CEO of redwigwam, said: “The cleaning and facilities management industry has seen unprecedented demand for its services as a result of the pandemic and the increased pressures being placed on businesses to provide safe working environments for their employees.
“We were receiving an ever-growing number of enquiries with an urgent need for additional cleaning resource including corporate and commercial premises, hospitals, property agents, landlords and litter-pickers.
“This has led to us launching Red Clean, the first flexible working community to directly support the cleaning sector.
“Clients like the flexibility that we are able to provide, giving them the chance to find the workers they need quickly but without having to take on the responsibility of HR, payroll and other administrative burdens. They also have the peace of mind of knowing that all cleaning staff are experienced, fully trained and have been vetted.
“Our clients also like the flexibility that Red Clean gives them to dial up or down their requirement in line with the demands of their business.”
Dean Yershon, Managing Director of Cool to Clean, a leading provider of commercial and office cleaning services across South East England, said: “We urgently needed cleaning operatives who were diligent and reliable. Redwigwam supplied great staff at short notice.”
