Marketplace goes Live!
Over the last few years, the East of England LGA’s “Talent Bank” has consistently offered excellent value-for-money consultancy services to our member authorities. The Talent Bank service can be accessed by EELGA’s member councils directly without the need to conduct further procurement through the use of the exemption entitled “Public contracts between entities within the public sector” contained within the Public Contracts Regulations 2015.
The other great benefit of the Talent Bank to our members is that it is delivered by the sector, for the sector. If the Talent Bank is successful, then all of the Association’s member authorities have a share in that success – in effect, our members are all part-owners of a local government consultancy business which turned over nearly £1.2M in 2018-19.
With the launch of our new on-line East of England Local Government Marketplace, we are making it even easier to access the support that you need through the Talent Bank: https://marketplace.eelga.gov.uk/
Discover our range of highly-skilled Associates: https://marketplace.eelga.gov.uk/associates/
Check out the range of support Packages available, either off-the-self or customised to suit your needs: https://marketplace.eelga.gov.uk/packages/
When you find something or someone that you like the look of, just click “Show Interest”, fill in the on-line form and we will get in touch with you to make it happen.
Over the coming weeks, we will also be adding a number of Partners to the Marketplace; either services managed or companies owned by the 50 member councils of the East of England LGA who are seeking to sell their services to other member councils. There are a few “early adopters” on the Marketplace already (https://marketplace.eelga.gov.uk/partners/) but we are keen to add more.
Listing on the Marketplace is FREE for eligible services or companies so what have you got to lose by becoming a part of this innovative and exciting commercial opportunity? Reach potential buyers, increase your brand recognition and generate new sales opportunities without spending a penny!
If you would like to know more about the Marketplace and understand how it can help your authority, whether you are interested in using it as a Buyer or a Seller, then please get in touch with us our 01284 758300 or firstname.lastname@example.org
