We are seeking qualified Custodial and Grounds Workers to join us through our STEPS temporary employment department. STEPS temporary employment is an excellent way to get your foot in the door and begin your career with the University of Kentucky.

We are a rapidly growing community, and we are seeking individuals interested in helping us maintain our vibrant campus.


As a Custodial or Grounds Worker, you will be responsible for the overall maintenance, cleanliness and upkeep of facilities at the University of Kentucky.

The STEPS Custodial Worker is responsible for general cleaning of assigned campus buildings. Duties include vacuuming, mopping, sweeping, dusting, scrubbing, and disinfecting restrooms, offices, lobbies, entrances, classrooms, laboratories, elevators, and medical areas such as waiting areas.

The STEPS Grounds Worker is responsible for landscape maintenance, including weeding, mulching, pruning, mowing, operating power equipment and trash pickup/removal. This work could be performed on the main academic campus, around hospitals, sports venues, and/or The Arboretum.

Both roles require the ability to provide excellent customer service and the ability to interact with students, fellow staff and faculty in a positive and professional manner. These positions help the University of Kentucky's Facilities Management Division be successful in providing a physical environment in which staff, faculty and students can achieve excellence in teaching, learning, research and public service.


Taking care of our people is a key principle of our strategic plan. The University of Kentucky is proud to offer a generous employee benefits package.
