In The Community

Fairway Group is committed to being an active part of the community and a leader in corporate responsibility.

This starts at the very top – CEO Louise Bracken-Smith and Chairman Alistair Rothwell take home compostable weekly waste from the office to use in their gardens!

But it doesn’t stop there. We regularly monitor and review our impact on the environment becoming members of Eco Active Jersey and Plastic Free Jersey in the process.

In 2018, we joined forces with our sister firm Bracken Rothwell to create FBR Life – a new framework for a set of beliefs and responsibilities that has been part of both companies since they were created.

For 2020 we voted to choose the The Shelter Trust as our partner for the year. We’re planning more events and fundraising opportunities throughout the year.


Our goal in business and as part of Jersey is to create the best version of the future for future generations.

This is why we spend time, effort and resources on making sure we are the best that we can be.

Every new starter is given a re-usable diffuser water bottle, KeepCup and cotton bag to minimise the amount of waste they might produce during the day. Last year we removed bins from every desk and created a central recycling and waste hub for plastic, glass, metal, papers and card.

We removed our “pod” coffee machine and provide filtered hot and cold drinking water for everyone. Printing is double-sided by default and we use 100% recycled paper, but we want to do more.

We are also a partner of the Jersey Festival of Words and have sponsored local triathlete Ollie Turner for the past two years and at least two more.

From an equality perspective, we support local schools to provide business training for young girls as well as providing outreach for business skills in a number of schools and colleges.  We host students from a range of on island programmes and were the first company on the island to add further diversity to our Trust board through charity Board Apprentice.


Alistair is a keen cyclist and Louise is a world-class triathlete so you might expect Fairway Group to be an active company. But we don’t see active purely in terms of sport.

It means active commuting and making use of our showering and secure lockup facilities. It means trying new activities and exploring different ideas together.

We do like our sport though: swimming, cycling, run club, boot camp, touch rugby and yoga to name just some of our activities in addition to corporate memberships to most of Jersey’s health clubs and swimming venues.


We take the physical and mental wellbeing of our team very seriously.

Whether it’s guest speakers like Kit Chamier, Pippa Campbell or Katy Pierce talking about nutrition or free six monthly health checks to training colleagues to become Mental Health First Aiders and inviting industry experts to provide guidance on mental wellbeing, we talk openly and provide healthcare and support before it is needed.


It’s a cliché but for a reason. We work hard to get the job done but we also like to let loose with our colleagues and have some fun. As our company has grown, we’ve adjusted to hold a series of social events that cater for all tastes.

Our annual Fairway Fest was a rousing success last year and we’re looking to make it even better this year. We also have a few things up our sleeve for Christmas. In between we enjoy a celebration at the end of each month, quarterly events and everything in between like It’s a Knockout and Dragonboat racing.
