NLCCE Event funded by Enfield Council

Enfield Council is fully committed to supporting and developing local businesses to grow and win more work. As part of this commitment, they are funding this tendering event to ensure businesses have the skills and knowledge they need to maximise opportunities. Many local Enfield based companies do not bid for public sector contracts as often they think they are too small or lack the skills, policies and procedures to do so. Find out how you can win more business with Peter Alekkou, Head of Service at Enfield Council who will speak about the Council’s procurement processes. Plus hear about current opportunities from contractors in the construction sector for the following sectors of business: Construction, Electricians, Plumbers, Scaffolders, Builders, Architects, Surveyors, Engineers.

Don’t Miss this Opportunity to:

  • Get practical tendering tips and skills
  • Learn how to become a Council supplier and understand the tendering system
  • Find out about tender portals
  • Hear from contractors in the construction sector – and learn about opportunities to work in their supply chain

  • Network with other businesses

Please note only businesses located in the borough of Enfield are eligible to attend as the seminar.
