Cleaning work – what do you need to know?

Before we move on to earnings as a cleaner, let’s take a closer look at what cleaning work abroad looks like. Here’s everything that you need to know!

Cleaning work is most common temporary or seasonal work. This has to do mainly with the workplace. Hotels, tourist resorts, guesthouses and campsites open recruitment mainly in the summer season, when tourism increases. Then these objects need many hands to work, to ensure the best quality of services for guests who are not lacking during this time.

Of course, you can also look for a job in office buildings, or other public places such as shopping centers, stations or airports.

Sometimes there also appear private job offers for male and female cleaners. They mainly concern the provision of cleaning services for the family / home or apartment owner.

What does cleaning work abroad look like?

If we decide to leave for a job as a male or female cleaner, (in most cases) we can count on free accommodation and meals. This is a big advantage, because unnecessary stress related to finding a temporary accommodation goes away.

In addition, we can save on accommodation and food, and this way we save all of our payment. What the accommodation will look like, depends entirely on the employer and the facility, which he manages. Most often these are shared staff rooms or cottages. With a bit of luck, we can also find offers with accommodation in a single room.

More information about a job with provided accommodation, you can find in our previous article: Working abroad with accomodation – is it worth it?  

Due to the fact that the role of cleaners in tourist facilities is invaluable, employers are willing to hire more people at once. Therefore, it is easy to find job offers for couples and groups in this industry.

Another advantage of cleaning work abroad is that there are no major requirements for the candidate. On our europa.jobs portal there appear many job offers in this sector. Most of the employers who publish advertisements on our portal, do not include knowledge of a foreign language in the requirements. However, they always indicate that communicative English or other language will be an additional advantage and may have an impact on the decision to hire an employee. Sometimes there are offers that require experience in a similar position.

Attention! Let’s not forget that in cleaning work we deal with detergents and many chemical cleaning agents that can cause allergies and irritation.

Cleaning abroad – for whom?

Cleaning work can be a unique opportunity for quick earnings for people who want to go to work abroad for the first time. The easiest way to get to such offers is through temporary employment agencies and placement offices. Thanks to their services, the recruitment process is smooth and what’s more, we don’t have to worry about completing paperwork.

In the workplace, we most often come under the care of our country coordinator, who is always there to help. Cleaning abroad is a good choice for people who do not know a foreign language. It will not be an obstacle in neither entering a new environment, nor in mastering employee duties. However, we must remember that working as a cleaner involves a lot of physical effort. People with ailments and injuries, as well as those leading a sedentary lifestyle on a daily basis, may have a problem with carrying out cleaning works. It is hard physical work!
