The Partnership and Procurement role within Senscot provides a dedicated programme of practical support to social enterprise in identifying and responding effectively to emerging tender and other business opportunities. The role supports social enterprises to develop partnerships and consortia.

This is a joint initiative between Senscot and Social Firms Scotland (SFS) partly in response to: the growing maturity of the SE community and their expressed need for support to facilitate greater collaboration and inter-trading, but also in response to specific policy measures being introduced by the Scottish Government such as, service reform, public social partnerships / co-planning approaches and the sustainable procurement agenda.

In particular, the initiative seeks to fill a gap in the existing support landscape through a dedicated programme and resource - with two specific objectives:

a) To give practical support to social enterprises and social firms in identifying and responding effectively to emerging tender/contracting opportunities.
b) To give practical support to social enterprises and social firms in developing partnerships for joint working; developing new services etc.
