The Consortium

The Consortium

The Consortium has been serving organisations and businesses delivering public services for over 40 years. The simple proposition of bringing together a wide range of disparate products, presenting them in an easy to access way and delivering on a first class service promise is the essence of our Buying Made Easy formula which is so popular with customers.

We currently work with over 25,000 customers from the education, early years and care sectors providing them with all the supplies and services they need to operate on a daily basis. We also have many customers from local government, the emergency services, churches, voluntary groups and charities.

Buying Made Easy

Our customers are tasked with providing key services to the community within tight budgets and our aim is to make it as easy as possible for them to do so. We support their core activities by ensuring they always have the right products and services, at the right time and at a price they can afford through a one-stop shop that fulfils their needs.

How We Work

We do our utmost to be a Customer Service led, vibrant and innovative business and are continually voted No.1 for service by our customers. As an organisation, we are committed to working ethically with our customers, suppliers and employees. We play an active role in the United Nations Global Compact Initiative and our efforts to minimise our impact on the environment are core to our business from product sourcing to internal business practices.
