People Power Services Ltd (PPS) was originally established in 2011 as a social enterprise to provide employment solutions for refugees and migrants who face employment barriers such as lack of functional English language skills and Australian work experience.
The business commenced as People Power Cleaning Services and focused on providing commercial, residential and office cleaning, such as bond cleaning, office cleans and one off residential cleans.
In the past year, PPS decided to change its company structure to a Not for Profit Company limited by Guarantee (which more closely aligned with our social enterprise roots) and to broaden our services to include such services as carpet cleaning and pest management. In line with this expanded business scope and changing governance structure, we also altered our name from People Power Cleaning to People Power Services Ltd.
We are a social enterprise with big dreams. Over the next five years, we are working towards our goal of training and creating employment for a workforce of over 120 fixed term and casual staff, expanding the business across south-east Queensland and also providing wrap around community development support to build the capacity of the community.
In order to achieve this goal PPS has given a commitment to focus on the following strategic goals over the next three years:
- Expand Promotion and marketing
- Sustainable development and growth
- Enhanced staff recruitment and management systems and
- Improved Governance and administration procedures.
Beyond delivering a fresh new start for our client’s every day with clean places to live and work, we are also creating fresh new starts for migrants and refugees, offering them a springboard to gain local employment, experience and confidence to contribute economically to their new country.
