Cleanology creates over 100 new jobs in Greater Manchester

Office and commercial cleaning experts, Cleanology has taken on 600 new staff in the last year, with over 100 jobs created in the Greater Manchester area.

During a period of growth, the company won a number of new contracts, including Europe’s largest car showroom, Mercedes-Benz in Stockport, and spearheaded a national expansion as far afield as Scotland, Bristol, and Oxfordshire.

An acquisition in Wigan, Lancashire, in October 2022 added a further 400 staff to the books, bringing the total to 1,400.

Dominic Ponniah, CEO of Cleanology said, “the figures speak for themselves – in 2022, our turnover rose to £25 million. But the jobs we have created are also worth talking about.

“All the new jobs we have created in the Northwest are spread across the Greater Manchester area, including 10 at our new regional headquarters in Wigan, another 25 in Stockport, and the remainder in central Manchester.

“The new contracts have offered real opportunities for progression among our staff – we have created more supervisor and managerial jobs, and almost exclusively used in-house teams to fill these roles. Added to that, over 90 per cent of all our staff are now paid the Real Living Wage or higher.”

Through the expansion, Cleanology has been able to offer a consolidated service for businesses with sites at multiple locations. It also introduces its commitment to sustainability, fair pay, and innovation to areas outside London.

Dominic said, “the employment market is undoubtedly the most difficult I have ever seen for recruitment. But our growth shows that all elements of the chain link together. We focus on quality and invest in our staff, and it is really encouraging to see that our clients share the same values. People choose us because they can see we are a family-orientated company focused on quality, that doesn’t cut corners. And we are growing.”

The company growth has enabled Cleanology to move to a brand-new head office in London’s new skyscraper district of Vauxhall Nine Elms. The move has provided space, but also, in true Cleanology style, the company has included a brand-new training and induction centre for new starters and continuous professional development.

Dominic added, “our journey began in Vauxhall 20 years ago, so returning to the area feels like a seminal moment. From our new office, I can see across the park to our old offices, and it makes me realise just how far we have come as a business, almost a reflection of Vauxhall itself. Maturing, but still learning and developing every day.

“Cleanology has retained its Northern hub in Wigan, for now. Our Wigan office is under review due to our continued growth. We are looking to relocate to larger premises later this year, but I am excited that we will be remaining in Wigan.”
