Founded in 2017, Ochre Cleaning is a 100% Indigenous owned and operated cleaning and property maintenance company, with a minimum of 90% Indigenous workforce at all times.
Whilst we are striving for a 100% Indigenous workforce, we acknowledge that some management and supervisory roles are required to be filled with experienced people. These are people who have the capability to transfer their skills and knowledge onto our Indigenous workforce who wish to aspire to become managers and supervisors.
Ochre Cleaning are aiming to be specialists in the cleaning and maintenance of offices, retail outlets, commercial buildings, multi-sites, educational and aged care facilities across WA and NSW.
We are a provider of an integrated property maintenance service offering, including contract cleaning, professional window cleaning, maintenance services, carpet steam cleaning, graffiti removal, grounds maintenance, general maintenance and asset cleaning.
Our customers will span across the commercial, government, educational, corporate, multi-site, office (major high-rise structures) and retail industries.
The owner of Ochre Cleaning, Joanne Pellew, has seen an opportunity to use the means available to her via her well-established Indigenous labour hire business and Registered Training Organisation to help end Indigenous disparity.
Through Ochre Cleaning, we aim to create real opportunities for the Indigenous community in the areas of training and employment in the cleaning and maintenance industries.
Through the Ochre group of businesses, Joanne and her experienced recruitment staff have access to thousands of Indigenous people who are both experienced and trainees in this industry and using the Ochre Training business, the upskilling and provision of people to meet demand is no longer a problem.
Ochre Cleaning was established as Joanne Pellew could see that whilst Indigenous employment targets were increasing across the whole facilities management and cleaning sector, the uptake of Indigenous people was either too slow or non-existent. Ochre Cleaning will strive to win as many contracts as possible to ensure the immediate employment of large numbers of Indigenous people.
