How it all fits together

Skillfair brings together clients looking for expert help and consultants offering their expertise with the minimum of fuss and expense. Skillfair provides the most comprehensive daily tender alert service, extracting tenders and projects from over 1,100 sources daily and matching them precisely to your personal skills profile.

Clients post their requests for help, advice or consultancy and after a quick validation process (to check contact details etc) we email details of the project out to our consultant members with appropriate skills.

Consultant members who are interested in a project respond via the Skillfair site providing information about their suitability and a link to their Skillfair profile.

Clients then select a consultant to contact, arrange the details and work can start. There’s no commission payable to Skillfair and the process is quick and easy, which is why many of our clients come back to us time and time again.

We also provide;

Full UK wide low and high value tender alert service for consultancy and service projects
Facilities to link consultants up to form joint bid teams and associate networks
Extensive on-line marketing of consultants profiles
Advertising of services and events to our consultant database
Customised version of our service for other membership organisations

For more information on any aspect of our services please email or call us on 0844 4457071, we’ll be happy to help.
