We Clean Strengthens Again With New Contract Manager!
We are delighted to welcome the latest addition to our Operational Team – Contract Manager Ryan Halford!
Birmingham born and bred, Ryan joins us with a wealth of cleaning industry experience and will be managing our contracts across Warwickshire, Worcestershire and North Staffordshire reporting directly into Operational Business Manager, Richard Wharton.
The role of a Contract Manager is fast paced and varied and no two days are ever the same. With a daily focus on effectively managing and motivating our cleaning teams whilst delivering service excellence to clients, they play a pivotal role in the success of any Contract Cleaning Organisation.
Ryan shone throughout the recruitment process as somebody with a clear desire and passion for our Industry and with his vast experience working within a similar sized organisation as we clean, he was identified as the preferred candidate.
We sat down with our newest Contract Manager to discuss his early years in the industry, and why he chose we clean to continue developing his professional cleaning career:
“I have been in the industry for 15 years now, working across the cleaning and facilities sectors, within a similar sized Midlands business to we clean. This experience has certainly helped me and held me in good stead, I have seen it all and therefore have a good understanding of people management and the importance of maintaining positive client relationships.
My first Contract Manager position came along ten years ago, and I immediately enjoyed all the different aspects of this role where no two days are the same! Whether it is managing larger teams or 1 or 2 Operative contracts they are equally as important and it is our role to ensure each and every staff member feels supported and appreciated!
When my previous cleaning company was bought out I researched the market sector and was immediately drawn to we clean. The cleaning industry can sometimes be let down by Cleaning companies who fail to see that their staff must come first however I could tell straight away just by browsing their social media and website that we clean is a company with the right culture and an ethos that I personally enjoy working within where ‘people matter’!
Throughout my first two weeks it has been immensely busy and I have been getting my teeth stuck into some of the larger contracts such as Muller Milk and Ingredients and Doncaster Precision Castings in Droitwich!
I am working closely with Richard Wharton and learning the specific policies and procedures operated by we clean and I am really looking forward to furthering my career here and helping to make a difference.
So far it has been a genuinely positive experience and there is a real family feel around the Office!”
