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.

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.

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).
Kingdom Services Group prides itself on the qualities of our colleagues and is happy to give Paul Andrew (Pictured Right) the spotlight and highlight the brilliant story of his rise through the ranks. Paul Andrew started his career with Kingdom early 2016 as a Retail Security Officer. During his time as an officer he worked on most of Kingdom's major retail contracts, received excellent feedback everywhere he went due to his professional approach in regards to everything he did whilst wearing the Kingdom uniform.
At the time Paul started – Alex Collins (Left), now Kingdom's National Retail Manager whom oversees all Kingdom's key retail accounts, was working as a Business Manager responsible for a portfolio of sites. He quickly recognised Paul's enthusiasm for security, professional standards and desire to progress within the business.
After a number of officer of the month awards, commendations and continued excellent feedback from clients – Alex committed himself to mentoring Paul over the coming months with the aim to develop Paul into a future Area Manager. Paul then spent his days off duty as a security officer to learn how Kingdom works in further detail.
