Custodian Recommendation & Reference Letter Sample

Updated on: October 23, 2021

Hardly any employer hires a custodian without first seeing a good recommendation letter. Why?

Well, these days, nothing is more important than hiring a custodian who has a good track record, will require the least amount of training, and will be able to contribute the most.

The greatest way of finding out if an individual is all that he is claiming to be in a custodian cover letter or/and a custodian resume is to study a recommendation letter.

Custodian recommendation or reference letters are “positive letters” as they provide a positive overview of an employee’s abilities and professional standing at the previous company.

This letter is not addressed to anyone in particular and usually holds a to a ‘whom it may concern’ header.

The following example will give you ideas on writing a perfect reference letter.

To Whom It May Concern

I am writing this letter to recommend Jack Ernest who worked at ABC Company as a Custodian. He is meticulous in performing all kinds of cleaning and maintenance tasks around the building. 

Jack’s work precision and diligence first came to my notice when he singlehandedly cleaned the entire building within the record time of 6 hours, just in time of arrival of a delegation of foreign guests. Even for the guests’ picky tastes, the cleanliness was “impeccable” as they pointed out. Since then, Jack has been a consistent favorite of all residents who want him to be assigned to their apartments on a daily basis!

He has been commended by supervisors and clients on several occasions and earned the title of “Eager Beaver”.

Not only is Jack good at his work, but he also maintains decorum when communicating with people around him and is generally well-liked by his peers. He handles responsibility well and is a tireless worker. He has my strong recommendation as he will be a credit to your organization in many ways.

Please feel free to call me at (000) 444-4444 if you need any additional information regarding his suitability to join your organization.
