Levelling the Tendering Playing Field

GC Business Growth Hub has partnered with The University of Salford to deliver a series of half-day workshops, designed specifically for the University’s SME supply chain.


About the series

In collaboration with the University of Salford, we are launching a fully-funded* support package for our SME suppliers in Greater Manchester. This series of specialist masterclasses will help identify and implement opportunities to maximise efficiency and provide evidence of environmental credentials, now a requirement of much public sector procurement.

*Certain eligibility criteria apply 

Businesses who attend these workshops will gain:

  • Increased profitability through resource-efficient actions with the opportunity to save up to 25% on their energy bills

  • Enhanced marketing credentials through improved environmental performance and financial accounting
  • A certificate of achievement to include in future submissions to demonstrate their alignment to the University of Salford's values and long-term objectives

You will also be able to find out about grants and other incentives currently available, including our Carbon Reduction grant which offers eligible businesses up to 50% capital contribution up to a total grant value of £12,500.

The Workshops

All workshops will take place at The Old Fire Station, University of Salford, Salford, M5 4WT
