Finding Inspiration in Every Turn
We focus on furthering the recognition of Women in all capacities in the UK Cleaning and Support Services Industry, including senior management and directorate level positions and organise activities that support women.
Although the British Cleaning Council 2015 survey demonstrated in general, the female/male ratio was balanced it did not reflect the same value when considering management positions and above. The greatest split was at Board level, a factor across may industries so we are not unique. Research suggests that women and the young will apply for a management or above role if they feel 120% confident in their skills and abilities, yet men will apply for the same opening when they feel just 65% confidence. Our aim is to change this!
Through training, support, mentorship and networking, the CSSA’s Women’s Group aims to support people in the cleaning and support services sectors to become the best that they can be by increasing their confidence, abilities and skills, and directing them to higher roles within their organisations.
