We are looking for skilled and reliable self-employed cleaners to join our housekeeping agency. Our aim is to help improve the quality of life for local families by matching those looking for housekeeping services with experienced professionals. It’s important to us that both you and your client are supported in your relationship.

A housekeeping agency works as a match-maker between clients and self-employed cleaners. We provide eco-friendly cleaning, ironing, tidying and home organisation services to the highest standards.

Working with us

If you work with us, you will be able to accept only the jobs you want and enjoy a great work-life balance with a flexible work schedule.

We take care of marketing, scheduling, customer service, telephone and in-house estimates, and customer billing. We provide you with monthly reports containing your completed jobs, and offer you tailor made customer worksheets and discounts on cleaning supplies. Simply put, you do the cleaning with eco-friendly products and we’ll take care of the rest!

We are looking for people who enjoy creating a welcoming home environment, and have high standards of cleaning and a keen eye for detail. The self-employed cleaning professionals who work with us demonstrate a positive attitude, efficiency, a good work ethic, and a passion for providing a reliable and environmentally safe service.

Please note, this opportunity is not suitable for you if you are immediately looking for a full-time job. Once you register with our agency, we will begin to send referral jobs. However, we are not able to instantly send 30 hours of work. As you continue to work with us, you will be able to build an ongoing client base. Penrose Professional Housekeeping is not the employer of its registered cleaners. You would be accepting jobs as a self-employed, independent cleaner.
