Our Culture

The Tectrade Way of Life

Life at Tectrade is vibrant, fast-paced with a focus on team work, skills building and training. We work hard but we also play hard. The office is a lively and fun place to be with like-minded people.

Located in the charming town of Godalming, next to the Old Mill, the Tectrade offices comprise the first floor of River Court. You’ll see a pool table, standing desks and inspirational quotations on the walls. There’s a breakout area for everyone to socialise and relax during the day, have lunch and enjoy a game of pool, Xbox and arcade games. 

In The Times’ Best Companies in the UK, Tectrade scored Outstanding, demonstrating that the company is a great place to work.


Social & Charity

We are passionate about giving back and our social and charity committee work hard to ensure there is always something exciting around the corner that is enjoyable for staff but at the same time gives back to the community. We support many charities that are close to our hearts and have fun at the same time with charity quiz nights, summer BBQ, bake-offs and casino nights.

Community Action Programme

Each year, we encourage Tectrade employees to leave their desks for a day to participate in giving back to the community day, ranging from helping plant a garden at a nursing home; sorting through donations at a food bank or painting a room at a hospice on company time.  It is our way of giving something back, working as a team and feeling good about it. 


Mental Health & Wellness

We strive hard to adopt a collective openness in discussing mental health in the workplace by raising awareness, providing training, understanding and working together, not in isolation; to help those it effects. 


Tectrade Policies

We strive to be an ethical and responsible workplace for our community, customers, suppliers and employees.

We want to be a great place to work for and with. We want our employees to be fully engaged with us and motivated to give their all and we want their contribution to be recognised and rewarded.
