Talent and development
The embedded culture of up-skilling 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 multi award winning apprenticeship programme has led to the creation of a number of meaningful partnerships with clients and local colleges. We employ apprentices in a variety of administration, horticulture, electrical, painting and decorating and handyperson roles with full time employment opportunities available.
