Providing peace of mind around the clock, Sewell Facilities Management is part of the wider Sewell Group, which was established in Hull more than 140 years ago.
From general maintenance and lifecycle planning, to preventative programmes of work and statutory compliance, its local, hands on support ensures buildings are safe, legal, well maintained and fit for purpose 24/7.
With almost 100 employees, Sewell Facilities Management continues to grow as a business, providing services in the education, health and commercial sectors across Yorkshire.
As part of Sewell Group, Sewell Facilities Management is the only company of its kind in Yorkshire to have been recognised in the Sunday Times 100 Best Companies to Work For list in the UK. Sewell Group also secured a Best Companies 3 Star ‘extraordinary’ accreditation, which recognises the highest standard of workplace engagement and represents organisations which truly excel.
Sewell Facilities Management has also created paid employment and training opportunities for individuals with a learning disability after joining forces with the Humber branch of the national charity Mencap.
Since the award-winning Abilities in Facilities partnership began in April 2017, more than 30 people from the charity have directly benefited, with four gaining paid cleaning jobs in offices and schools across Hull, and others benefiting from work experience opportunities or learning interview techniques, helping them progress into paid work elsewhere.
The individuals have autism, mild and moderate learning disability, and mild learning differences, and Sewell staff have undergone specific training to help them progress and feel supported within their roles, opening up secure opportunities in the world of work.
Sewell Facilities Management teams continue to be part of schools across the region and witness, every day, how staff go the extra mile to deliver first class education.
The Golden Apples Education Awards celebrate the best Hull and East Riding schools and colleges have to offer by recognising the staff and students who make a difference.
Having supported the awards from the start and as part of the education community, Sewell Facilities Management is proud to once again be the main sponsor and help shine a light on everything good about education in this area.
