If your labour demands are low, we can re-hire your staff and pay you for their time, evaporating your standing costs and eliminating the possibility of losing staff.

If your labour needs are particularly high, Custodian People can place a recruiter directly in your office to be a direct link, looking after all your staffing needs.


The key to success is quality across the board. Custodian People pride ourselves on providing you with excellent service, whether you’re one of our clients or one of our workers.
