Corporate Social Responsibility
We believe that it is crucial to our core business success to act responsibly as a business, with the highest social, environmental and ethical standards. We want to achieve financial success, but we also want to create value for our stakeholders - from shareholders to customers, employees to business partners, and society as a whole. Corporate responsibility informs everything we do, and is deeply embedded in our core company values. These values influence our approach to work and guide the way we treat our employees, our customers and grow our business.
Kingdom Services Group is delighted when any of our colleagues show a level of commitment and professional conduct that instils confidence in our clients. It is with this in mind that we are giving particular praise to Solomon, a Kingdom Security Officer at Morrisons in Rochdale, for his quick thinking and bravery in detaining a thief. For his actions in this rare occurrence, he is being awarded with a CEO award. This incident just so happened to be witnessed by former councillor for Smallbridge, Jean Ashworth, at the Morrisons store on Kingsway. She said;
“I have to say really well done to the security guard. What a nightmare job he had detaining a very aggressive thief… Thankfully, security and staff managed to get him out into the back of the store until the police arrived.
[The staff]... are brilliant as is the security guard. I actually thanked the security guard for keeping us safe”

Here at Kingdom Services Group we are excited to announce that we have joined with the brilliant environmental campaign Now or Never.
Now or Never is a ground-breaking behavioural change project, starting in Leamington Spa, with the core focus of ‘behavioural change’ amongst people who litter. This is the most comprehensive and sustained anti-litter campaign ever undertaken in the UK. Over the course of the next twelve months we will be assisting Now or Never to tackle litter head on along with other important topics such as disposable coffee cups, fly-tipping and the impact of local business upon the environment.
This excellent campaign is run by Clean Up Britain, which is a Community Interest Company (CIC) based upon a passion for looking after the environment. Clean Up Britain have been lobbying hard for a national litter campaign for some time and are members of the National Litter Strategy Advisory Group. They have also been broadening their horizons to inspire and enable many a community and business to properly address the environmental issues which are becoming an ever growing concern such as single-use plastics and recycling.
Kingdom Services Group is a company that values the hard work and qualities of it’s colleagues and it instils great pride every time we hear of a colleague doing well. It is with such pride that we are happy to highlight Jonathan Walker (Pictured) and his recent promotion.
Jonathan came to us in March 2017 from Trafford Council’s Environmental Services, where he worked as a team leader. Amongst the many duties he was responsible for, one of the more substantial responsibilities was site management, including it’s day to day running. He was primarily responsible for his small team who worked to ensure the requests from the council were met, as well as meeting the general welfare of the colleagues under his care.
Now, at Kingdom Services Group, Jonathan is Business Manager of Environmental Services. Amongst his new overall responsibilities, which include over ten contracts in the North, he tends to the likes of recruiting & setting up new sites. Kingdom Environmental Solutions offer a full list of services which include;
Here at Kingdom Services Group, we take mental health awareness very seriously as we all know mental illness cannot be seen. The likes of depression, anxiety, stress and psychosis undoubtedly affect many a person close to us in some form or another and dealing with such illnesses on a day to day basis is an unimaginable struggle for anyone, let alone having to cope in a working environment. It is with this in mind that we at Kingdom have put together a mental health awareness leaflet available for any colleague that may require it. It details a lot of helpful information designed to help people better understand mental health issues, be more aware of mental health issues and fundamentally realise that these issues are nothing to be ashamed of and that the stigma attached to them needs to change.
The leaflet details the likes of what mental health issues are and how common it can be to suffer from along with links to helpful sites such as Mental Health Matters and the World Health Organisation for full introductions and advice on good mental health, how we can help ourselves and others as well as a state of good well-being.
The leaflet also goes into some detail about the more common mental health issues people can face like anxiety, stress & depression and has simple to follow explanations of how these illnesses are caused. This is with a view to helping people start to know the signs in themselves and others so they can act accordingly to deal with them. There is also a list of symptoms in order for people to keep an eye out for going forward.
Kingdom would very much like to thank all our colleagues whom attended Haydock Park Racecourse on Saturday evening. A fantastic time was had by all and it was touching to see Terry Barton (CEO) and Agnes awarded with a beautiful glass trophy to celebrate twenty five years of Kingdom Services.
Kingdom could not be more excited to be celebrating a quart of a century since it first started business. We were founded on the 2nd March 1993 by the very same man who is still our Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Terry Barton BA (Hons).
