Job Details

What Trafford Housing Trust can offer you:

Trafford Housing Trust encourages a healthy home/work balance with family friendly policies, and we offer an attractive benefits package for employees, as well as a competitive and transparent system of pay and reward. These benefits include:

  • Excellent training and development opportunities
  • Access to the Social Housing Defined Contribution pension scheme
  • Free Trafford Leisure Gym Membership
  • Access to Westfield Health Plan
  • Annual leave allowance of 31 days per annum

We’re actively building diverse teams and encourage applications from everybody. We want to create an inclusive environment where everyone can contribute their best work and develop to their full potential. We celebrate our differences and recognise the importance of our teams reflecting the communities we serve.

The Role:

The Trust is looking for an enthusiastic Multi-service Operative to join our busy CleanStart team. CleanStart is Trafford Housing Trusts Social Enterprise Team. You'll be working to provide high quality cleaning, clearance and grounds maintenance, of internal and external communal spaces around our neighbourhoods. You will ensure that positive relationships are maintained with internal and external customers.

You will also work alongside other internal and external contractors where required, providing assistance and supporting visits so the ability to communicate clearly is essential. You will be required to undertake ad-hoc tasks such as changing light bulbs and fitting door handles, in addition to operating a variety of plant and equipment. There are times you may be working at heights (full training given) and assisting with movement of heavy goods. You will have experience of providing excellent customer service and have an understanding of relevant health and safety regulations.

You'll have experience using cleaning equipment and grounds maintenance machinery, be organised and have a can-do attitude. Holding a category B (Car) driving licence is desirable but not essential. Knowledge of CoSHH law and experience of using mobile devices, such as a tablet, is beneficial. If you are invited to interview there is an opportunity for reasonable adjustments to help you perform your best.

If you’re up for the challenge we’d love to hear from you.

The Trust:

Trafford Housing Trust (THT) is an independent housing company providing more than 9,000 quality affordable homes within the Trafford area of Manchester and across the North West.  We are a ‘profit-for-purpose’ organisation, striving for a society transformed, free from poverty, inequality and injustice.  Our purpose is to ‘provide homes and neighbourhoods everyone can be proud of.’

We have recently joined the L&Q Group, in an exciting deal that will see us build 20,000 new homes across the NW. This represents ambitious growth and a huge vote of confidence in THT’s team and track record. 


Blue Octopus partners with employers from a multitude of different sectors and industries, using our next generation technology and recruitment expertise to help attract, engage and hire the best talent for their unique career opportunities. We know that having the right people in place is crucial to every business’ current and future successes, regardless of the area they operate in.

This experience, coupled with knowledge developed over time, has allowed us to fully understand both the market itself and the skills required within the sector. We understand that operating at a high standard, efficiently and cost-effectively, is vital for our clients in the Social Housing sector, who provide a much-needed service for their tenants.
