Apprentice Employer of the Year Sponsors

We are incredibly proud to announce that we are sponsoring a category at this year’s Croydon Business Excellence Awards.

Having been successful in the ‘Apprentice Employer of the Year’ category in years gone by, we have decided to put ourselves forward as sponsors this year as we look to find 2017’s winner.

Chequers Chairman Gary Jeal said, “The board and I are delighted to be sponsoring this award. Over the last 30 years countless young apprentices have come through our door, fuelling our continued growth and growing within the company themselves.”

As part of our role as sponsors we will be on the judging panel for the award and will be looking out for some excellent apprenticeship schemes.

Gary Jeal said, “Apprentices remain an integral part of Chequers as we work toward a bright future. We’re so proud to be supporting this year’s award, and I look forward to hearing about some of the fantastic apprenticeship schemes being offered by Croydon businesses.”

RAMP Names The Horse!

As part of our 30th Anniversary we are giving our clients the chance to ‘Name the Horse’.

The Repairs and Maintenance Panel plays an important role in the upkeep of AmicusHorizon sites across the capital and they have decided to name a van ‘RAMP’ to highlight this.

Stationed at St Martin’s Estate in Tulse Hill, the new van is part of our Grounds Maintenance Division and has been conducting works there for a number of weeks.

We were pleased to have the Chair of the RAMP Committee, Margaret Ashmead and Estate Services Officer Michael Chivers along to christen the new vehicle this week.

Our Contract Managers Dayon Haynes and Kevin Byrne also attended with their cleaning and grounds maintenance teams to mark the occasion.

Keep an eye out in the future for our vehicles to see if you can spot RAMP on the roads.

High Praise for Marcelo

Congratulations to Marcelo Puruncajas, our Employee of the Month for March!

Marcelo has been praised by the scheme manager at Isledon Village in North London.

We like to recognise the great work of our operatives. It’s even better to see Marcelo’s cleaning highlighted by our client as well, especially given as he had only been on that particular site for just over a week.

He’s been working for Chequers for two years and has proved himself to be an excellent member of the Chequers family at every site he’s cleaned, carrying out his duties with the care and dedication we expect of all operatives.

Well done once again Marcelo; keep up the fantastic work!

If you would like to nominate an operative who has been providing a consistently outstanding service, you can email one of our contract managers to let them know.

Alternatively you can email with the details
