Earls Colne Primary School and Nursery in Colchester, Essex, is responsible for educating around 400 pupils. In May of 2020, Chris Ogilvie made contact with us after not being happy with the service they were receiving at the time. Chris was keen to find a company that could operate a team of professional, trained and reliable cleaning operatives, one thing that was very important for Chris was that he found a company that could provide a fully managed service.
“The staff and management are polite, punctual and professional, I could not recommend them highly enough.”
The existing cleaning staff had all decided not to transfer which meant TUPE did not apply in this case. Our Contracts Director, Fern Jenion, successfully sourced local operatives that were keen to jump into a new role and environment with us at GJ Commercial Cleaning. Fern also took this as an opportunity to redesign the way in which the cleaning was delivered across the school, which has since resulted in better efficiency, more time being spent on actual cleaning, higher standards of cleaning and better relationships between our operatives and staff at the school.
“We have been using GJ Commercial Cleaning for almost a year and are more than happy with their service. The cleaning standards have dramatically improved since they took the contract over.”
Our main aim with every new contract that we are awarded is to bring the standard of cleaning up to the level we and our client expect. Upon our first visit, we noticed the cleaning was of a particularly low standard and so we called in a team of our excellent cleaning operatives from nearby sites to deep clean the school. On our subsequent visits, we received many comments from the school staff saying how shocked they were and have since received referrals from school staff for other commercial contracts.
“I have never seen the school this clean before, thank you!”
At GJ Commercial Cleaning we understand and agree that Educational & School establishments require impeccable cleaning on each and every visit, and with the arrival of Covid-19 this has never been more important. All of the team at GJ, look forward to a long and successful relationship with the staff and pupils at Earls Colne Primary School and Nursery.
