We are delighted to add “Good Employer” status to our list of attributes.  As a huge advocate of business and community spirit within the Croydon borough, this accolade highlights the ethos and values of StartUp Croydon as a not-for-profit charity.  Although we are only a small team, we value and respect each other and work interactively to make our organisation a happy and productive environment.   In addition to training and mentoring aspiring entrepreneurs, we position ourselves to bid for projects that will enhance opportunities for those who are considering self-employment or who are long term unemployed.  We also aim to strengthen our business relationships by holding networking and other events at our modern business enterprise centre, Weatherill House, which is located within close proximity of Wandle Park Tram Station.

Our Chairman, David Robinson, commented:

“It is a great achievement for Startup Croydon to be one of the first companies to have received this accreditation. For over 33 years, we have supported the Croydon economy and thereby the community by helping people achieve their dreams by starting their own business, with many of them going on to be significant employers in their own right.”

By endorsing the Good Employer Croydon Charter, we are committed to supporting the success of Croydon’s local economy through using local supply chains, creating job opportunities, ensuring employees are paid a fair wage and by promoting fairness, equality and sustainability through our business practices.
