DFID has two Headquarter buildings in the UK, one in East Kilbride and the other in Whitehall.

Our cleaning requirements are outsourced to Interserve Facilities Management as part of an Affiliates Cluster arrangement managed by Cabinet Office.

All cleaning staff are paid the London Living Wage or the National Living Wage, as appropriate.
