Helping Hands creates 10 jobs

Blackburn-based cleaning firm Helping Hands has created 10 new jobs as it begins its post-coronavirus growth.

The company, which employs 30, was forced to furlough workers during the lockdown, but has restarted operations on a more positive note.

Suzanne Waring, the company owner, said: "As the pandemic took hold, it was a case of baton down the hatches. There have been some dark times not just for us but for many businesses and that included having to furlough staff at the beginning.

"I never thought for one minute we would be in this situation but I am truly thankful to our existing customer base who has not only supported us through such a difficult and unprecedented time but thanks to them, we have our core team back and even now see ourselves emerge stronger as a result and in the position of being able to recruit.”

The new jobs include both full and part time cleaning supervisor and driver cleaning roles, and will see the successful candidates manage their team and oversee both domestic and commercial cleaning duties as well as other domestic services such as laundry and ironing that the firm offers.
