Equal Opportunities

At Transport for Wales we value diversity. It makes us stronger, helps us understand our customers better, make better decisions and be more innovative.  Everyone’s different and has their own perspective so we’re building a diverse team that mirrors the communities we serve. Through this we’re determined to be one of Wales' leading inclusive employers.  We’re creating an inclusive transport network that everyone in Wales can be proud of.

Who we are 

At Transport for Wales, we’re on a mission to transform transport in Wales and make it fit for the future, whether that’s rail, bus, walking or cycling. We want to inspire a nation to change the way it travels, so that we all travel more sustainably and help to combat the climate emergency we’re all facing.

We’re an open and inclusive place to work, where everyone is welcome and our people are supported to reach their full potential.

We want to create an environment where our people can grow and succeed. This is key to enabling us to deliver on the promises we’ve made to the people of Wales to build a sustainable transport network that meets their needs.

Role responsibilities

The Cleaning Operative will work as part of a team responsible for the day-to-day customer service and health and safety of passengers.

  • Maintain personal compliance with cleaning procedures, by following the communicated cleaning protocols and collaborating with other Station staff to ensure your personal safety and the safety of all TfW passengers.
  • Provide station and vehicle cleaning support by following the guidance in the Methods of Working within the Station Briefing Pack to ensure the station is compliant with health and safety guidelines.
  • Knowledge share with the Cleaning Operative team by posting useful information and guidance on the group’s Teams Forum to ensure the team is up to date with best practice.
  • Report hazardous issues by being observant of dangers to customers and following the reporting mechanisms to alert station staff and ensure safety to passengers.

 Who we’re looking for

  • Previous experience of working in a cleaning role.
  • Ability to follow strict health and safety guidelines.
  • Understanding of how to safely handle cleaning substances in line with Control of Substances.

This is a 16 hours per week role working on a Saturday and Sunday.

We fully support our people who want to improve their Welsh language skills, and personal development for Welsh Language skills are offered in a variety of ways such as online learning, classroom courses and funding attendance at local community courses.
