Have your car cleaned while you work

10 Dec 2012

If you don’t have time for trips to the car wash, the UniValet team will clean your car in any University car park.

The Univalet team with Manchester City's Premier League Trophy

UniValet is a unique social enterprise which has been launched jointly by the University and Rochdale-based charity Petrus Community to help disadvantaged people into work.

Through UniValet, the University is contributing to the social and economic success of the local community, in support of our Goal 3 (Social Reponsibility).

Whilst working for UniValet, a not-for-profit company, team members also attend The Works, a training and advice centre set up by the University with sites in Moss Side and Ardwick, to help them find long-term employment.

The new service costs from £10 a car and you can pay by debit card, credit card or PayPal. Members of the team will clean your car with Onedrywash, an environmentally-friendly waterless washing and polishing system.

You'll drive home in a shining car, knowing you've helped to provide paid on-the-job training for local people who have been without a job for some time or who may have never worked.
