MITIE was founded by David Telling in 1987 with one philosophy in mind.
Success would come from creating the conditions to motivate others: employees, customers and stakeholders.
A winning philosophy given that today, MITIE is one of the UK’s leading support services companies. By successfully servicing, maintaining, managing and improving buildings and infrastructure for a wide range of private and public sector customers, we help national and local businesses in the UK to improve their facilities and ultimately help them achieve their strategic goals.
MITIE is different. Not only because our activities are exceptionally diverse; we clean hospitals, airports, bus shelters and phone booths, provide catering for the MOD, security for the Tower of London, run business services for top City law firms, innovate in schools with the latest engineering hardware, refurbish superstars’ changing rooms and manage the facilities at many manufacturing and retail sites nationwide, but because of our people.
We currently employ around 29,000 people in the UK who are all motivated to succeed because of the unique share ownership culture and the opportunities that are available to them. They understand that their success is inextricably linked to yours and the safeguarding of your reputation. Understandably, we recognise that they are our most cherished resource.
MITIE is organised into two divisions: Building Services and Support Services.
Building Services is made up of Engineering Services and Property Services. The Support Services Division consists of Engineering Maintenance, Cleaning, Catering, Security, Managed Services, Business Services, Landscape and Pest Control.
The Board of Directors is responsible for overall strategy and performance, corporate governance, acquisitions, capital expenditure and safeguarding the assets of the Group.
The Executive Committee is responsible for the day-to-day management of the business.
