How you can be part of our supply chain: Sub-contracting
You don’t have to be a direct supplier to be part of our Supply Chain. Many of our direct providers (suppliers) use sub-contracting - in this case the sub-contractors are also part of our Supply Chain. We hold regular Market Engagement events at which many of the large providers who sub-contract attend. These events are a perfect networking opportunity for you to gauge whether you can be a part of the Supply Chain - all Market Engagement events are advertised on In-Tend so it is advisable that you register and look out for any events which may be aligned with your business offer. Read more about In-Tend.
You can also find various networking events on our partners Find-it-in-Worcestershire and Worcestershire Business Central's websites, many of these events are related to specific markets and can help in identifying sub-contracting opportunities for your business.
How we support local supply chain's and sub-contracting
Developing our local supply chains is paramount to achieving our objectives. Therefore, we will help develop our local supply chains by:
- supporting suppliers in identifying local supply chain and sub-contracting partners
- encouraging suppliers to take steps to make supply chain opportunities accessible to local organisations, including SME's
- encouraging suppliers to communicate with their supply chain and their supply chain communicate with us
- considering opportunities for smaller to medium to local businesses to be included in the supply chain
