A Growing Team
We recently celebrated taking on our 30th employee since we started – with the current team being 18 people! Gemma, Conor, John and Laura have all joined recently - you can see more about our team on www.radiantcleaners.co.uk/the-team
For 22 out of the 30 this has been a first ever job, or a first job after long term unemployment. Within the current team we have people who have faced homelessness, prison, abuse, addictions and other barriers to employment such as being single parents or coming from outside of the EU.
In October Helen moved to fulfil her long held desire to live in London. She is now working for Shelter...Helen's is an inspiring story of how a life can be changed through the dignity of work, first as part of Grace Church and then Radiant Cleaners. Radiant was able to give her a management role, which has enabled her to gain her current role at Shelter.
Bekah has made a great start as the new operations manager, having been promoted from within the team.
Record end to 2019
It has been a very busy few months for Radiant Cleaners, with October setting new records for turnover and hours worked. These records didn’t last long though as they were then surpassed in November! We are delighted to have won new contracts to work in Nottingham – including for the Royal College of Nursing (a fellow Living Wage organisation), Comfort Lettings, AIM and Works Social.
We are delighted to have been chosen as one of Coop's community partners for this year. Radiant Cleaners will receive 1% of Member's purchases on certain items for the next 12 months – at no cost to you! To support us in this way you must go to the Coop website and nominate Radiant Cleaners – click here to see our page and sign in:
As well as choosing us please tell all your friends, families and neighbours to pick us!
Radiant Cleaners won a 3rd award in 2019…this time from Premier Christian Radio. This was in recognition of our significant community impact – despite being less than 3 years old. An advert about Radiant Cleaners was part of the prize…listen out for it on the airwaves in the spring!
We hope you all had a great Christmas & New Year – and we look forward to working with you to impact more lives in 2020. Please do get in touch if you would like to help support what we are doing – or have an idea and a passion for another business we could start!
Love, Matt, Sam & all at Grace Enterprises and Radiant Cleaners
