Top CV Tips and Guidelines
If you’ve got no experience in worker as a Cleaner, it is recommended to include domestic cleaning, relevant skills and other experiences you have to demonstrate that you have the ability to work well in this position.

Always ensure that you include positive words such as “pride”, “positive attitude”, “dedicated” and “enjoy” to demonstrate to the prospective employer that you are really passionate about what you do.
Being knowledgeable about and following Health and Safety regulations is an important aspect of a Cleaner’s job, so it is recommended to make mention of this on your CV to indicate that you are aware of this.
