As part of First Ark Group, we invest profits back in to positive projects, businesses and communities to drive social impact and ensure that our care goes far beyond the boundaries of the spaces we work in, and out into wider communities.
This means that every time we work together on a facilities management or refurbishment solution for your business, you’ll also be significantly contributing to generating a positive social impact.
We’re a living wage employer, and we always endeavour to buy and employ locally. A minimum of 5% of our employees are apprentices, re-enforcing our commitment to creating jobs and improving access to fair employment.
Here’s just some of what we regularly do:
- Organise regular volunteering to enhance, repair and maintain the premises of life-changing community projects.
- Invest our resources and our profits into creating life-changing opportunities for people and businesses in our communities We particularly focus on the reduction of digital exclusion, financial exclusion, improving health and wellbeing, developing peoples skills and supporting them into employment.
- Invest in green technologies and new ways of working that are sustainable and reduce environmental impact.
