    Name

    Dear native speakers,
    What do you call a person who works, for instance, in an office or a company and is responsible for cleaning and making coffee for the employees. Also what do you call the room where this person works in, I mean where he/she makes coffee or stays?
    Thanks in advance.

    Re: Name

    I imagine that there are all sorts of names and titles. It would not surprise me to learn that they could be 'Staff Support Personnel'.

    Actually, there aren't many of then around these days in the UK - and virtually none who both clean and make tea/coffee. We used to have 'tea ladies' in some establishments, but they have largely given way to coffee/tea and soft drink dispensers (machines).
