MAKING A POSITIVE difference in the cleaning industry

Our Values

Thanks for visiting our website.

Jennifer O’Donnell

  The moment I started Jane Jefferson Cleaning, I made a commitment to make a positive difference in the cleaning industry. My commitment is centred on delivering great cleaning, a very personal level of customer service and ethical employment. Integrity and respect runs through all our activities.

We like to do things in our own unique way. We hand pick every member of our team and train them “The Jane Jefferson way” – traditional, thorough and efficient cleaning. Believe it or not, we only appoint a cleaner who has demonstrated their skills in our own home and office space!

We give our clients the peace of mind that they have the best, most reliable cleaning service at all times.

All of our business clients get a tailor-made cleaning plan & for homes we use our A-B-C system. Our A-B-C approach helps us to prioritise jobs, so that we can work efficiently and save our commercial and domestic clients money.

Our team are incredibly important to us. We invest in fair pay, regular training and reviews. It’s important that our staff feel supported and motivated to do a great job. We are pro-actively re-educating the market and raising awareness of the importance of paying the Living wage. We do this amongst politicians, journalists, activists, peers, our cleaners and customers.

We believe that it’s important that Londoners understand the challenges facing ethical business practice, particularly in the unregulated cleaning sector. Seeking news ways to improve industry standard is one of our key ambitions.

Jane Jefferson Cleaning is a Recognised Service Provider proudly working together with the Living Wage Foundation, the organisation at the heart of the movement for fair pay.

We are delighted to be recognised for showing leadership on this issue as an organisation with people at its heart and one that is focused on having a positive impact on society. The Living Wage commitment will see us offer a Living Wage option for each and every request for tender. This will mean that even more organisations can consider paying all of their contracted staff a wage that meets the cost of living. Recognised Service Providers also commit to pay the real Living Wage to all staff working for their core business.

The Living Wage is an hourly rate set independently and updated annually. The Living Wage is calculated according to the basic cost of living in the UK. Employers choose to pay the Living Wage on a voluntary basis. The Living Wage enjoys cross party support.

The London Living Wage is currently £10.20 per hour and covers all boroughs in Greater London. The UK Living Wage for outside of London is currently £8.75 per hour. These figures are set annually by the Resolution Foundation.

In 2014 Heidi Alexander MP cited JJC in the House of Commons as an example as to how big business should operate & in 2015 we were the Living Wage Champions for London.

By doing things differently, we deliver an impeccable standard of service with a rewarded and motivated team.

It’s great to know that together with our clients, we make a positive impact in London.
