Step 5

Applying for a contract

Start small

Start building up your public sector experience by applying for smaller contracts first as typically their requirements will be easier to meet.

If you are invited to tender, this is great news - however, if you have never done this before there is some great help available:

  • East London Business Place

  • Advantage West Midlands
    Provides support for new and existing businesses to help make the economy for the West Midlands stronger and more productive
  • Yorkshire Forward
    Yorkshire Forward’s objective is to help businesses start up, grow and compete. They work with a range of partners to help the region's businesses become more successful, which in turn, boosts the region's economy.
  • National Federation of Builders
