We’re proud to have retained our number 1 spot for Construction & Engineering’s Best Company to Work For in the UK. All the businesses placed in the Best Companies lists are acknowledged by staff as enlightened places to work – recognising highly motivated employees and inspirational leadership. Thakeham was also placed 15th in the ‘Best Large Companies to Work For in the UK’, and 5th in the ‘Best Companies to Work For in the South-East’, having been placed 11th and 4th respectively for Q1. With a number of new entries for Q2, it’s a great achievement to have retained our standings in the top 25 for national standings and top 5 in the regional standings.


Third year in succession

2022 marks our third year running that Thakeham has been recognised in Best Companies competition, but this year is the first for us to list within the large company category.
