Clean Start

Apex_JamesClean Start is our Cleaning Practice Lab developed in partnership with our cleaning contractors; A2Z Cleaning.

Clean Start offers real work experience in the cleaning sector with the prospect of gaining a real job with A2Z cleaning after the placement.


Placements are at Apex House enabling service users to develop their cleaning skills, improve their confidence, and improve their team working skills whilst in a safe and familiar environment. Each service user is supported by a mentor throughout their placement and are given a reference to take to future employers.


John Clarkson, Managing Director of A2Z Cleaning says, “We are delighted to be working with Apex Works – we work together to make sure that each placement is tailored to an individual’s needs. At the end of it everyone wins – we get a work ready employee who we already know we want to take on, Apex Works sees people into jobs, and the service user gets the chance of a real long term job with us. The scheme is working really well and we’re pleased with the service users we are getting referred to us and also with the support we get from Apex.”


Many of our service users go on to get jobs cleaning in showrooms, hotels and offices after their Clean Start placements.
