Cleaning and facilities firm to create 250 new jobs as it works towards £20m turnover

North East’s independent contract cleaning and facilities management firm, Maxim FM, is aiming to create around 250 new jobs over the next 18 months as it heads towards reaching its long-term growth ambitions.

Maxim FM’s annual turnover has passed £15m for the first time – and the Sunderland headquartered firm is now on track to achieve its strategic goal of becoming a £20m turnover company by the end of 2025.

The company has taken on more than 250 staff over the last 12 months – taking its total workforce up to 1500 people – and is expecting to create the same number of new jobs by the end of next year, half of them being within the North East and the remainder across the UK.

Maxim FM provides commercial contract cleaning and facilities management services to public and private sector clients, and has branch offices in Leeds, Swindon and North Lanarkshire.

The firm also works with a range of well-known organisations, including Quorn Foods, Kromek plc, Salford College, Durham Cricket, TRW and the Scottish Prison Service.

Graham Conway, Maxim FM founder and managing director says: “Our stated aim this time last year was to hit an annual billing rate of £15m, and having reached that landmark, our long-term target of £20m now feels well within reach.

“We’ve been consistently able to create significant numbers of new jobs on the back of this growth, with continuing to build our expert team remaining central to being able to meet demand from new and existing clients.

“We have an especially strong track record in successfully delivering flexible, tailored services within the education sector, which currently represents around half of our contract cleaning turnover, and this is helping us compete for and secure major new seven figure contracts with institutions right across the country in competition with some of the industry’s biggest national names.

“We are well established as the North East’s largest independent cleaning and facilities management firm and have a clear strategy in place that will take us to the next level by the end of next year.”
