Chelmsford Star Co-operative belongs to its members, whilst our members belong to the communities in which we serve.
They should actively participate in the running of the Society, through forums and elections, and support the ethical and co-operative values that underpin our business. In return, they will share in our successes via a share of our profits, and through special member discount events.
A share account can be opened for just £1
Charity of the Year
Each spring we ask our employees to vote for their preferred Charity of the Year. The name of the charity with the most votes is then announced at our annual general meeting. For 2014/15 we have chosen to sponsor The J’s Hospice.
Celebrating its 10th birthday, this charity delivers age-appropriate hospice and respite for young adults with life limiting conditions in Essex.
During the year we will support our chosen charity not only by raising funds from events and initiatives but also by helping them raise awareness.

Our Funeral division has been the proud winner of numerous awards over the past years, mainly for customer service. This is a very difficult category to win due to its popularity; therefore our achievements are all the more special and pay tribute to the team.
Why set up a Co-operative?
Co-operatives are a means for people collectively to 'do it for themselves', whether responding to a market opportunity, or meeting a need that would not be otherwise met by the private or public sector. They engage people in their own solutions and enable members to share the risks and development costs of the business. They also draw from the knowledge, skills and expertise that diverse members bring.
Chelmsford Star Co-operative Society Ltd is a locally owned employer in the mid Essex Area.
We employ in excess of 850 people within our 4 trading divisions, Food, Department Stores, Travel, Funerals and our Head Office function.
The Society has a wide range of Job opportunities, with flexible working patterns, and we are committed to supplying training opportunities for our workforce. Many courses are available, including bespoke courses and National qualifications in our accredited centre.
