There was plenty to celebrate for Robinson Services at the British Institute of Cleaning Science Cleaning Operative of the Year Awards for 2018!  Martina McAleer from Foyleside picked up the Top Award as Cleaning Operative of the Year 2018 after also winning the Retail Sector award.

Congratulations are also due to Robinson Services employees Wahida Tigiourt , Linda Curry and Richard Rodgers  who also made it through to the finals of the British Institute of Cleaning Science Cleaning Operative of the Year for 2018 Awards in both the Education and Retail Sectors in Northern Ireland.

This well attended award ceremony took place in Belfast City Hall, with the Belfast Lord Mayor and CEO of BICSs in attendance. The impartial judging panel were amazed by the amount of entries that came through for this year’s awards especially for the new category, for supervisor recognition

The standard of this year’s entries was exceptionally high and it is important that we recognise the Cleaning operatives who were nominated by their peers/line managers/supervisors for their commitment to ensuring  their workplaces, are kept pristine, hygienic and safe.

David Robinson, Managing Director, Robinson Services commented:

“A huge congratulations to Martina for this incredible achievement and everyone is delighted for her and the team at Foyleside. This is a wonderful opportunity to celebrate the fantastic job our cleaning operatives do on a daily basis and to acknowledge and appreciate the cleaning industry as a whole.   We must also acknowledge our other finalists – Wahida and Linda from Queens University and Richard from our North West Retail Centres who are also  a credit to Robinson Services for the work they do.

At Robinson Services we strive to ensure all our teams are trained to the highest possible standard. Our investment in training ensures we position the company to be considered for such accolades and this success is testimony to this.  Hard work and effort does bring rewards.”
