The Cleaning Accountability Framework (CAF) is an independent not-for-profit organisation that exists to end the exploitation of vulnerable workers and to promote human rights and responsible business practices in the property services industry.
CAF works with the union, government, academics, and the property services industry to protect and advance the rights of workers in Australia (primarily cleaners), and to address modern slavery risk in supply chains. Specifically, CAF has developed and promotes an industry-agreed standard that applies to property assets and is independently verified by CAF.
The CAF Certification Scheme includes a robust assessment of procurement, contract management, and employment practices as part of the application for certification, and a worker-driven supply chain accountability mechanism to promote ongoing compliance throughout the duration of an asset’s certification.
Reporting to the National Certification Manager and working closely with the program and administrative officers, you will be responsible for contributing to the day-to-day running of the CAF Certification and Prequalification scheme. This role requires regular communication with external stakeholders and an ability to manage deadlines. You will receive extensive training and support to equip you to be successful in this role.
You will walk stakeholders through the certification process starting with what we do, what the audit process looks like, organising worker meetings, drafting compliance reports and overseeing any remediation. You will also manage the client through ongoing health checks throughout the period of certification.
You will have an interest in labour rights and be able to analyse information and make findings on this basis. CAF is a small team that supports each other so at times your role may expand into other areas requiring a degree of adaptability. You will be a proactive team member that can take direction and work independently depending on the situation.
In return, CAF will invest in your training and development as a business and human rights practitioner, as well as reward you through the provision of six weeks’ annual leave and 12% super.
This role will require occasional travel (within Australia).
