About us

We have a long history in providing expert FM services but have also established ourselves as the market leader within the housing sector, trusted by many of the UK’s leading social and private housing organisations.

We understand the needs of this sector which has led us to develop unique partnerships designed to support those more vulnerable residents that require a greater level of care, such as those in Senior Living schemes.

Our specially trained employees have the skills to provide a tailored service while supporting our partners’ care staff to help improve the quality of life of all residents.

  • We work in close partnership with our clients to develop tailored solutions based on a thorough understanding of their business and communities

  • We recognise the impact we can have on creating a positive environment

  • We aim to be agile and responsive to needs with the ability to make rapid decisions

  • We have a stable and experienced team from management to operatives built on investment in their potential and creating opportunity

    Security is something we take incredibly seriously at Chequers and for us this begins with making sure we have the right people, with the right skills, in the right place, at the right time.

    All of our employees wear photographic ID badges at all times on site with their own unique bar code. We have developed a bespoke barcode scanning app which verifies the staff member’s identity and includes details of relevant training and DBS disclosures.


    Every member of staff we employ is checked by our experienced Human Resources Department and must hold genuine right to work documentation and a DBS Disclosure. Each member of staff working with children or vulnerable adults will hold fully enhanced DBS disclosures.


    The welfare of our people is equally important to us. We have recently drawn up a new Modern Slavery statement as part of our commitment to ending exploitation of workers.

    The embedded culture of up-sklling at Chequers is part of our commitment to ensuring our employees achieve their individual potential, through carefully designed training programmes across all areas of the business.

Our in house BICSc assessors are fully trained to offer a range of modules including ‘Bodily Fluids and Sharps Objects’ and ‘Biohazard Decontamination Cleaning’.

    BAGMA

    As members of the British Agricultural & Garden Machinery Association, we ensure all employees are trained to meet the developing technology that the industry uses, underpinned by Health and Safety principles. Our in house BAGMA instructors are fully trained to administer induction training as well as a number of additional modules.
