With 600 (and counting!) high performing individuals working for us, across our offices in Portsmouth and London, we are All In.  

We are a vibrant, forward-thinking business led by our values and guided by our mission.

Always Customer Obsessed, we listen to insights and test and learn together. We engage our people and are transparent about our plans focussing our collective effort on key priorities.

For over 25 years Checkatrade has stood for reputation and raising standards. Today is no different. Whether it is our trade members, consumers or our staff, we are all about Doing the right thing. We are a passionate bunch of people taking pride in building a business that is a force for good.

Wellbeing Matters

We want our people content, healthy and happy. So, we promote the things that enable you to enjoy a positive work environment, increase engagement and support you in being resilient in today’s fast paced world – both at work and at home.

We take a holistic view to employee wellbeing. This includes having a physical work environment that fosters productivity and collaboration to having trained Mental Health First Aiders and Line Managers you can turn to when the going gets tough.

Our Perks and Benefits have something for all with a wide range of benefits from fitness to financial wellbeing and charity leave.

And our Wellbeing Hub provides you with links to Employee Assistance, articles and blogs with the additional support and signposting to varied external organisations for that extra layer of support when needed.

We have task forces to drive our D&I agenda, we have initiatives in play to support employee wellbeing and we run regular engagement surveys to track employee satisfaction too and take action on responses.

Giving Back

We’re passionate about giving back, which is why we are fully focussed on our three corporate social responsibility pillars which are charity, community, and the environment. Our annual employee-elected company charity of the year sees collective fundraising and volunteering for a cause that’s close to us, and we’re big on sustainability with our #TeamGreen Project. Plus, our community pillar is all about Trade-Up, a non-for-profit set up to retain 10,000 people every year in the UK to become tradespeople.
