Women fuelling We Clean Growth – International Women’s Day!

Women fuelling We Clean Growth – International Women’s Day!

As we celebrate International Women’s Day, it is essential to reflect on the significance of this day and how far women have come in the pursuit of gender equality.

International Women’s Day is a global event celebrated on March 8th every year to recognize women’s social, economic, cultural, and political achievements. The purpose of this day is to raise awareness about gender inequality and to promote women’s rights and empowerment.

This year’s theme, “Choose To Challenge” calls on individuals to challenge gender biases, stereotypes, and discrimination. It reminds us that each of us plays an important role in creating a more equal world by calling out unacceptable behaviour and taking action when we witness injustice.

At we clean we have long championed women within our organisation, from frontline cleaning staff through to longstanding Board Member and HR & Office Manager, Gaynor Powell, women are a driving force in our continued growth.

With this in mind we are delighted to welcome two new we clean employees, Bethany Bagley as Contract Manager and Alysha Bird as Junior Payroll Administrator.

Bethany Bagley – Contract Manager

The role of a Contract Manager is fast paced and varied, with no two days being the same. Contract Managers are responsible for managing staff, ensuring client satisfaction across their portfolio, addressing and resolving any issues and they therefore play a critical role in the success of any cleaning organisation.

Bethany has joined we clean with a wealth of industry experience, particularly in the educational sector and will be reporting directly into Richard Wharton in his new role as Operational Business Manager.

Beth shone throughout the recruitment process as an individual with a strong work ethic and clear desire to deliver service excellence. Her experience and strong industry knowledge will hold her in good stead as she develops with our organisation.

Beth is delighted to be joining we clean during an exciting period of growth, commenting:

“I started as a Cleaning Operative at the Birmingham City FC Training Ground which is close to where I live before moving on into other Supervisory cleaning roles In the surrounding.

This experience at the coalface and at the frontline of cleaning operations gave me a good grounding of the cleaning industry.

Working within an educational setting was particularly challenging and offered me great insight into the importance of effective contract management.

I am absolutely delighted to be joining we clean, who’s Head Office is local to where I live meant that I was very aware of their excellent reputation for being a ‘people business’.

This is a really exciting opportunity for me and I am really looking forward to the role and being part of the we clean team where I will be working closely with Richard Wharton and helping to develop his portfolio across the South Warwickshire region.”

Alysha Bird – Junior Payroll Administrator

Back in 2003 when we first began trading, our fortnightly payroll was a much simpler affair, we had fewer staff on our books and only a handful of contracts.

Nearly 20 years later, we are pleased to say that things have somewhat progressed. We are proud to service over 250 accounts, and count an ever-growing team of 570 frontline cleaning staff who input a staggering 11,000 hours of cleaning a week as part of our cleaning operations.

This growth has meant that the fortnightly payroll has grown rather more complex, and with it, the Payroll and Accounts Team has grown too with its latest addition, Alysha!

Living locally in Cofton Hackett, Alysha’s background is predominantly in retail however it was her desire to forge a career in the commercial arena as well as her bubbly personality that meant she was the right candidate for this critical role.

Alysha believes her background working in busy retail stores will hold her in good stead:

“I saw this opportunity and thought it would be a great fit for me. I live locally and was keen for a career change where I can develop new skills and pursue new opportunities.

My retail background has meant that I have good organisational skills and can deal with very busy periods. I have also developed strong customer service skills and enjoy being part of a team where everybody is working towards the same goal.

Although it is only my first week I feel very settled and everybody has been kind and welcoming. It can sometimes be difficult joining a company where there are lots of longstanding employees but everybody has made me feel part of the team from day one.

I am really looking forward to working closely with Christine Checkley as Payroll Administrator and learning from her vast experience as well as HR & Office Manager, Gaynor Powell.

Thank you to Paul and David for the opportunity!”
