Corporate Social Responsibility
Cloud Essentials recognises that its operations have an effect on the local, regional and global environment. As a consequence of this, the Company is committed to continuous improvements in environmental performance and the prevention of pollution.
Employees are encouraged to take a sustainable approach to transport to and from work, with provision of showers for cyclists, frequent car-sharing and use of public transport. Where appropriate, we encourage staff to use train transport for visiting customer sites and use teleconferencing technology where possible to deliver services remotely.
Anti-Slavery & Human Trafficking Policy
This policy applies to all persons working for us or on our behalf in any capacity, including employees at all levels, partners, contractors and suppliers.
Cloud Essentials strictly prohibits the use of modern slavery and human trafficking in its operations and supply chain. We have and will continue to be committed to implementing systems and controls aimed at ensuring that modern slavery is not taking place anywhere within our organisation or in any of our supply chains.
We expect that our suppliers will hold their own suppliers to the same high standards.
The Company’s objective is to maintain operational standards so that all its employees and employment applicants are treated equally irrespective of race, sex, sexual orientation, religion, disability, age, marital status or ethnic origin.

years in business
I’m really passionate about helping our customers get to grips with how they manage, secure and access their data in the cloud. Data governance has become a theme that gets threaded into every project and it sets us apart from other cloud partners.
We take time to point out the implications of even the most basic cloud configurations. Storing what could be huge volumes of data in the cloud needs careful consideration before you launch feet first into anything.
Being unafraid of being pioneering is where we stand out. We often find ourselves in very niche areas – it means I oversee fewer, but more technically challenging projects, which I love.
