About Us



For over 20 years we've been helping consumers combat rogue traders across the UK. We only allow recommended, vetted and monitored tradespeople to join us to offer their trade or services to the public.


Since 1998 Checkatrade has stood for reputation, raising standards and doing things right. Today is no different. With more tradespeople and consumers choosing us than ever before, we remain the leaders when it comes to finding the right trade for home renovation, maintenance and emergencies. And that's because above all, reputation matters to all of us.

No-one checks trades like Checkatrade. We pride ourselves on being the only online directory whose vetting standards are so robust that the consumers who use us know that they are in safe hands.

Checka-vision? Ready, set, grow.


If you join us, you're coming at a great time. Our focus is on our customers and growth. We're growing our member base, our customers and our staff. But we know we can't grow without significant investment. That's why our parent company, HomeServe are financially backing our plans by investing in our people, products and processes in areas such as marketing, systems and innovative technologies.


If you’re ambitious, you’ve met your match - but we can’t do it alone. We need top-notch customer service advisors, tech developers, super sales people and marketing masterminds (to name just a few) to bring our vision to life. So, if you’re looking to make your mark at a fast-paced, growing dot com, you’ve come to the right place.

Our HQ is based at brand new offices located in Lakeside in Portsmouth. As we continue to grow, so does our work space – so we’re expanding and developing our offices into a state-of-the-art, vibrant, attractive home from home which won’t feel like work.
