Mrs Buckét scrubs up head office

Leading commercial cleaning company Mrs Buckét has made a significant investment at its head office in a drive to provide its growing team with a fresh environment focused on wellbeing and collaboration.

Mrs Buckét, which has offices in Cardiff, Swansea and Bristol, has modernised its flagship Swansea office, adding more desk space and an additional informal space for collaboration and meetings.

The new concept office was designed in partnership with Ministry of Furniture, who also provided the furniture, with Mrs Buckét CEO, Rachael, the creative mind behind the project.

Rachael Flanagan, CEO of Mrs Buckét, said: “After a tough two years for everyone, we were keen to refresh our space as more of the team returned to office working.  Employee wellbeing is really important to us and so our main goal was to create a modern, fresh environment, a place where people are excited to come to work.

“We consulted with our team from the outset and designed the new offices purely with their feedback in mind. Team building is at the top of our agenda, and we really believe that having an inspiring space for our team to work from will help us in our drive to become one of the foremost employers in the cleaning and facilities management industry.”

Graham Hirst, Managing Director, Ministry of Furniture, said: “We worked closely with Rachael and her team to ensure that the investment at Mrs Buckét HQ was closely aligned with their vision for the office. They wanted a more collaborative working environment and I think that the final design will really help facilitate that creative energy that they were so keen to foster.

“Since the start of the pandemic, the way that people view their offices has really changed. We know now that people can work well from home so the office has to offer an inspiring, alternative work space. Rachael and her team were one of the first to identify this shift and their office is a great example for anyone considering making a change.”

There are currently nine staff based at the Swansea HQ, as well as the operations team, who split their time between being out in the field and the office.

Mrs Buckét is a high-quality commercial cleaning and facilities management company. Established by Rachael Flanagan in 2005, the business has grown to have 330 employees operating across south Wales and south west England.

The majority of supported […]
