Team of the Week: Facilities Team

July 8, 2021

Our Team of the Week is our incredible Facilities Team – they’ve worked tirelessly for us over the past year to support our colleagues and services during the pandemic.

We have over 200 staff working in our Facilities Team across 48 sites in Gloucestershire. The team is made up of housekeepers, catering staff, porters, team leaders, supervisors, admin and management.

The team has adapted their normal routine during the pandemic to incorporate enhanced cleaning, wearing additional PPE to work safely in a busy and physical job, menu adaptations dependent on the patients appetite and special diets and much more.

We have welcomed many new staff into the team over the last 12 months, some substantive, some agency and some redeployed – we couldn’t have got through the last year without all of these new members of the team. You could be a part of this friendly team too! – they’re currently recruiting to the following roles:
