We have three working locations: our headquarters at Lakeside in Portsmouth, our satellite office in London and remote working to support our Hybrid model. Find out more below…
Kings Cross, London
As well as Lakeside, we have a small central satellite office, just a short walk from Kings Cross train station. Our London-based technology team is made up of an ever-growing group of like-minded people all working collectively on new projects, using state-of-the-art technology, in a newly fitted out office space – it’s certainly a cool environment and an exciting place to be.How to find us
Hybrid home working
We’re introducing Hybrid Homeworking at Checkatrade in September 2021 – which means some of our time will be spent in the office and some of our time at home.
There’s so much more to Checkatrade than your day job. We like to celebrate all sorts – from International Women’s Day to charity fundraising events and even hosting our own festival Checkafest. Plus, there’s truth in the rumour that there ain’t no party like a Checkatrade party…
Corporate Social Responsibility
We’re passionate about supporting charity, community, and the environment. We’re focused on fundraising for our company charity of the year, sustainability with our #TeamGreen project and being a key part of the HomeServe Foundation – an organisation which aims to increase the number of apprentices across the UK and beyond.
