Business & Professional





As a market leader in maximising opportunities for SMEs to win public-sector business, we have a team of talented bid professionals, marketers and support staff, to make sure that our clients have the highest-possible chance of success when bidding for contracts.

Since opening our doors, and along with our partners, we have been working closely with businesses across the northwest and beyond to help them understand the tender process, learn how to find suitable opportunities, as well as giving them an insight into the private-sector mentality.

In 2013, there were 4.9 million businesses in the UK, over 99% of which were small and medium enterprises. They employ over 14 million staff, with gross value added of SMEs estimated at £380 billion, or 49.8% of the UK economy. With that in mind, we’re on hand to give this valuable sector all the support we can, by creating tailored solutions when it comes to tenders, bids and proposals in order to grow their business.
