Perpetuating a culture of sustainability, charitable works, and giving back to the community, Checkmate is devoted to ethical, sustainable and responsible working.
From environmental initiatives such as fire door recycling and reducing our carbon emissions, through to protecting local and national economies via work experience, apprenticeships and bridging skills gaps, Checkmate is dedicated to using our corporate success for the good of our nation.
Organised Regionally, Delivering Nationally
Supporting regional and national causes across the UK, we embed the values of our framework providers into our everyday working lives. This has been demonstrated through numerous projects, from providing kit for local football teams, and raising money for various client crusades, to working with The Children’s Trust to develop a corporate partnership that exceeds building compliance, and provides support for their worthwhile fight.
While there is no official scheme for apprenticeships, Checkmate has developed and implemented a two year ‘Passive Fire Training’ course, centred around active labour within the workplace. With 16 brilliantly placed apprentices, this bespoke course has been designed to provide both on-the-job experience and the relevant qualifications.

Checkmate is committed to an Ethical Code of Practice which ensures the welfare and wellbeing of every individual that works for or within our business, as well as throughout our supply chain. There is a board-level, company-wide commitment to integrate ethical policies into the core business decisions that we make.
Equality, Diversity and Inclusion
The achievement of equality, diversity and inclusion is central in the company’s mission as a provider of quality passive fire protection.
We aim to create an organisation which recognises the contribution of all staff. We will be supportive, fair, just and free from discrimination. We want Checkmate to be regarded as an exemplary employer within the public and private sector, and believe that any modern organisation has to reflect all the communities and people it serves.
In the pursuit of our aims we seek to continually extend, improve and strive for excellence in the comprehensive range and quality of the services we provide.
