Careers

Community

With over 30 branches and 500 employees working across London, Chestertons is proud to be an active member of the communities in which we work. However, our involvement goes well beyond simply helping people to find a place to live.

We support a wide range of charities, clubs, community groups and institutions, and our company and staff or focused on getting involved, making a difference and having a real impact – whether that’s through fundraising, volunteering, donations or simply raising awareness.

Some of our key charity initiatives/achievements include:

  • Supporting our nominated charity - St Mungo’s homelessness charity - for many years. More recently, Chestertons funded a Volunteer Coordinator, who was essential in launching a new programme called First Response, which in its first two years running has helped an additional 423 people off of London’s streets!
  • All staff at Chestertons are given one (fully-paid) day per year, to volunteer with a charity of their choice, allowing all of our staff the opportunity to make a difference to our local communities.
  • Since 2014 Chestertons has been a huge supporter of the Calling London coat drive. Every November all of our London branches become donation points to collect unwanted winter coats, which Calling London then distribute out to charities across London.
  • In 2020 – and for the fifth year in a row, Chestertons has been recognised for outstanding implementation of the Payroll Giving fundraising initiative. We have become one of only a small percentage of companies across the UK to be awarded the Diamond Quality Mark since it was launched in 2018, due to support of employees’ charitable contributions throughout the year. All staff donations made are matched by the company.

As a company we also support many local schools, clubs and organisations where possible.

Amongst many others, Chestertons currently supports:

  • Middlesex Cricket Women’s and Disability teams
  • Dress for Success (charity)
  • London Welsh Rugby Club
  • Chelsea Physic Garden
  • The Honeypot Children’s Charity (charity)
  • Suited and Booted (charity)
  • Richmond Cricket Club
  • Stephen Lawrence Charitable Trust
  • Local foodbanks
