Interserve recruiting 1500 employees in response to the Covid-19 pandemic

Interserve has announced it is recruiting in the region of 1,500 people to undertake essential roles to support the UK Government’s response to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The new roles will add to the efforts the company is already making via its internal redeployment team, giving colleagues who are furloughed the opportunity to transfer to active contracts where training and geography allow.

Interserve plans to recruit a mixture of temporary and permanent positions including:

  • 800 people in Interserve’s Communities business unit to support its NHS contracts in London, Birmingham and the South East delivering facilities management (FM) services including cleaning, maintenance and portering.
  • 200 people in Interserve’s Communities business unit to support our FM services at the North West Nightingale Hospital in Manchester.
  • 500 people to support Interserve Healthcare, which delivers high-quality complex care services to adults and children.

Interserve carries out a wide range of vital roles to assist the NHS and other crucial services. The company has FM and total FM contracts at 16 NHS Trusts, six healthcare facilities and the London Ambulance Service and Scottish National Blood Transfusion Service.

Lynn Mawdsley, Interserve’s Managing Director Support Services, said: “Our cleaners, porters, security, catering staff and maintenance colleagues play a crucial role in supporting and maintaining hospitals and critical infrastructure across the UK.

“Making sure that hospitals remain clean and provides the best possible environment for NHS staff and patients is always of paramount importance, but now more than ever quite simply the services our teams deliver are helping to save lives. Interserve Healthcare is supporting the UK Government’s response to COVID-19 by providing critical care to people in their homes, thereby freeing up hospital space for people admitted due to coronavirus.”
