Local Businesses invited to meet the “Breckland Buyers”
Local businesses are being invited to attend a special event to find out more about how they could win contracts to provide services for Breckland Council.
The Meet the Breckland Buyers event, to be held on September 29, will give businesses a chance to speak to members of the council’s various teams about the diverse range of goods and services bought by Breckland. The event is open to businesses of any size based in Norfolk or Suffolk.
The companies will have an opportunity to hear more about how Breckland selects suppliers before talking about the services they can provide and how they could support the council to deliver first class services to residents and businesses. The event will also provide an opportunity for networking with other local businesses.
Julie Kennealy, Breckland Council’s Executive Director of Commercialisation, commented: “Breckland buys a vast range of goods and services on behalf of residents and businesses, as well as behind the scenes services which enable the council to operate.
“This event will provide local businesses an opportunity to find out more about the sort of contracts that Breckland offers and how they could become a supplier in the future. It also means our teams can find out more about the businesses that are out there which are offering new and exciting ideas, services, and ways of operating, which could help us further enhance our services and become more efficient and effective.”
When booking their place, businesses will be asked to identify their area of expertise so they can be matched with the most appropriate Breckland Council team. Service categories range from architects and financial services, to cleaning services, marketing materials, and security, so any business will be able to attend.
The Meet the Breckland Buyers event will take place at Elizabeth House, in Dereham, on September 29, from 4pm. The closing date for registration is 5.30pm on September 22. For more information and to book your place, go to: http://www.breckland.gov.uk/content/meet-breckland-buyers.
