Corporate Governance

We’re providing government bodies with safe buildings, secure technology, and highly sensitive deliveries.  Keeping our employees, delivery partners and customers safe and secure is our priority. So how do we do this and make sure every single piece of work meets exacting standards, whether it’s health and safety, security or sustainability? And how do we make sure systems are in place so that we can maintain our services, no matter the situation? That’s the remit of our Corporate Governance team, keeping things safe and secure, running efficiently and cost-effectively, now and in the future.

Current Corporate colleague

Working in Corporate Governance, you’ll be based in Hanslope Park, Milton Keynes, but with regular travel to our London site and sometimes overseas.

For our teams, one of the biggest challenges is distance: you’ve got to build strong relationships worldwide to keep an overview of every project and service.

Case study

The Corporate Governance team recently oversaw Health and Safety standards for a brand-new theatre that helps train the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office’s diplomats all over the world. Find out more in our case study.

We’ve helped remove 97% of avoidable single-use plastics from the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office’s UK operations.
We’re also planning ambitious programmes from solar power to reduced greenhouse gas emissions.

We comply with internationally recognised standards, making us the go-to experts for government customers worldwide. 

Staying ahead of the curve in Corporate Governance

With regulations evolving all the time, and a constant need to maintain best practice, how do the Corporate Governance team innovate?

Implementing new systems like this one makes it easier for teams worldwide to log issues.

The new platform enables easy reporting and analysis to manage safe working
