More than just a cleaner!

At Yenza we value the community that works with us. As a result, we Pay them a FAIR rate. They receive 80% of the cost of each booking which makes sure they get the lions share of the money as he or she would have done most of the hard work.
In paying a fair rate this helps them live a better quality of life and upskill themselves or provide those much need ballet shoes for a budding 3-year-old ballerina.

Justice For Cleaners
We feel that it is not just good enough to pay a living wage but cleaners should be paid a Fair Living Wage and be helped out of the poverty cycle by giving them a helping hand to improve their lives. Work fewer hours and have more of a work-life balance.
Most cleaners work 50 hours a week and still cannot make ends meet and this is because they are living on £7.40 an hour! No one within an hour of the M25 can live on less than £10 an hour especially if they have a family.
The problem with a large cleaning organisation is they outsource their work to contractors who outsource to cleaning suppliers.
Meaning the rate the cleaner could have earned passes through 2 or 3 companies before the cleaner can even get a sniff. So a salary that could be £10 - £15 an hour lands up being minimum wage because everyone gets a piece of the pie and the cleaner misses out.
That is why we hire our cleaners directly for all our contracts. We put in the time and as a result, can pay our cleaners a higher rate. We also know each one individually and are actively involved in their well being. Most larger cleaning organisation don't have a clue who is working for them because they have subcontracted and outsourced all their jobs.
With this hands-on approach, our cleaners feel they are cared for and looked after and as a result, we have some of the UK's best and most enthusiastic cleaners.
Flexible Hours / Online Learning
Due to our flexible hours and our online courses - Isabel was able to qualify as a bookkeeper. She still uses Yenza but now she uses to help someone else with extra work she has.
Fair Hourly Rate / Help with learning english
When Sylwia first arrived in the UK she could only speak a few words of English. 3 years on and she now speaks fluent English due to us helping her sign up for English class and is self-employed and able to sort her own taxes and PAYE. Which she could not do before and as a result people took advantage of her great cleaning skills and paid her a minimum wage whilst she was living in London.
